Can communicating about science make a difference? And can sharing stories about successful science communication inspire and drive action? You decide.
What happens when a scientist spots an inaccuracy in a Hollywood blockbuster? What chance do they have to get director to make a change?
Today’s story is one that’s told by an incredible science communicator, who also happens to be a well-known American astrophysicist AND the Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium at the Rose Center for Earth and Space in New York City. Listen to the wonderful Neil deGrasse Tyson and hear his story. It’s funny and inspiring, and I hope that it makes you think “Ah! Stories! That’s the ticket…”
