Check out this video by one of the people involved with designing and testing the Mars Rover Curiosity:
On the blog where I found this video there was the following comment:
“What a great example of the power of storytelling! I’m embarrassed to admit that I was one of the many who barely paid attention to the news before and after the Mars landing. But this short video left me with tears streaming down my face! Isn’t it amazing how much more you care about something when there’s a person and a story to connect you to it?”
That’s something all of us hoping to effectively communicate about science need to remember. And so many of your blog posts do this beautifully. Brilliant!!
