With scientists employing a range of popular media platforms and storytellers finding imaginative new ways to render science narratives in film, television, and emerging media, have we entered a great new era of public understanding of science—one that’s finding fresh ways to spark popular imagination? Sev Ohanian (writer/producer of Searching), Heather Berlin (neuroscientist, professor, and host of Science Goes to the Movies), Kerry Bishé (Halt and Catch Fire), Paula Apsell (executive producer of NOVA), and Janna Levin (astrophysicist, writer, and host of the NOVA feature Black Hole Apocalypse) will explore the surge in popular science narratives and captivating voices.
