The Ghost In Science (サイエンスの幽霊 Saiensu no Yūrei?) is Susumu Hirasawa's second solo album.


The Ghost in Science is marked by a whimsical, futuristic thematic in which Hirasawa paints himself an a mad scientist. It has a sound similar to other Hirasawa albums of the same era, though puts greater emphasis on electronic elements.
