The Gap between Science & Society

One of the questions that is always up in the air: How do we succinctly communicate our thoughts and ideas about science to the public? I saw this a couple of months ago but I’ve decided to mention it because as a scientist, one of the biggest obstacle IS closing the gap between the public and science. Jorge is a talented cartoonist who wrote and drawn during his grad school. At a TEDx conference, Jorge structurally discusses the gap between science and the public. What are the ways in which we can close this gap? How the public perceived scientists? What impact stereotypes have on society in general? And what we don’t know about the universe should inspire us to go and find out. This should drive us towards better understanding and to discover new blank pages to fill out with more ideas. Thanks for the inspiration and I couldn’t agree more!
