[ASC-list] WA event - Communicating Space
SLau at chemcentre.wa.gov.au
Thu Jul 5 10:10:28 UTC 2012
It's one of the hottest topics in science at the moment - space. As seen
by the recent public interest in the Square Kilometre Array bid and
visit to Australia by astronaut Buzz Aldrin, people are hungry for more
information on life, the Universe and everything.
So what are the challenges of 'communicating space' to the many and
varied interest groups? How do you engage the general public in a 'far
out' topic? And how can we translate these insights and initiatives to
other fields of science?
Join our expert panel to hear more about the challenges and rewards of
science communication in the astronomy and astrophysics fields, and ask
your own burning questions.
This event will include a 15 minute live presentation in Horizon - The
Carley Tillett - Manager at Horizon - The Planetarium
