“Science,” to me, is the leading edge of knowledge. It works on the boundary between the known and the unknown. I think that’s exciting. Science also means understanding my world, after all the root word scient means knowledge or to know.
And there is an ever-expanding body of science with which to stay abreast. How do you manage that? One of the sources I rely on to keep me up-to-date is EarthSky .
EarthSky has 600+ Global Science Advisors – experts in every field of study – who suggest topics, review content, and provide ongoing help to a radio show that began in 1991.
EarthSky enjoys the support and partnership of thousands of scientists and scientific institutions, including Fast Company, Discovery News, the National Science Foundation, Google, NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Chemical Heritage Foundation, the USA Science and Engineering Festival, the National Space Biomedical Research Institute, Research Corporation, Shell, the Edwards Foundation, Advanced MicroDevices, Dow, the Whole Planet Foundation, Monterey Bay Aquarium, the Geological Society of America, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, Sustainable Brands, the National Space Grant Foundation, The Economist, and, of course, Radio Newark. (There are many more.)
In short, it is a fabulous group of brilliant people producing excellent summaries of current research, the lastest discoveries, with an analysis of scientific publications and news all wrapped up in a broadcast-quality package, and happily aired to you by way of Radio Newark. What could be better?!
Truly, it is an honor to be an EarthSky affiliate. The scientists interviewed are extraordinarily knowledgeable, articulate, and interesting. The the subject matter is vast — such a broad horizon. I’m never bored, but always looking forward to the next segment of EarthSky.
You will too.
