Deteriorating relations between the USA and China since 2018 have extended to education and scientific research arenas. We put the US-China science and education in a historical perspective and describe the win-win situation when both countries collaborated. We discuss an ongoing loss-loss scenario of the decoupling and speculate its far-reaching adverse impacts beyond bilateral territories. We call for actions to be taken for a brighter future by the leaderships in both countries.
