Science is a part of our lives, whether we realize it or not. It’s the smartphones we surf the web on. It’s the color of our eyes. It’s the food we eat. But most people don’t have the best grasp on the science we live with every day, and it isn’t always that easy to get the answers we need. Scientific articles are dense and difficult to read, even for people in graduate school. And the news? Well, what do you think would happen when someone with a journalism degree tries to interpret an article written by an expert with 20+ years in a field, written for people with 20+ years in a field. Some things get lost in translation.
Many authors put elements of science in their writing, but many of them don’t know where to turn for the information they need. Or just don’t have the right connections. For that reason, I thought I’d provide this opportunity for authors (and readers) to ask questions and get real answers, hopefully answers that make sense. I’ll email and post all answers to my blog. Think of it as one of those columns you see in news paper, only for science.
