When the Big Bang Went Pop: Popular Science Writing Panel with Oliver Morton
Popular science writing: what it tells us and what it can't, with BBC presenter and author Timandra Harkness, award-winning authors Oliver Morton and Dr Roberto Trotta, and string-theory expert Professor Joseph Conlon. Is it possible to explain complex ideas (eg quantum mechanics) to a general readership? Does popular science leading to an expectation of scientific success that is difficult to satisfy? (Beagle on Mars, medical cures for cancer/dementia/etc) Have popular-science communicators failed? (some surveys show half of Britons don't accept evolution).
