Welcome to my history of science, history making scientists, science, science- in- every- day- life explorations
I hasten to tell you that I am not a scientific “expert.” I do not have a degree in micro biology, rocket science, or nuclear medicine. I earned my Ph.D. in history, and my undergraduate degrees in communications and journalism. During my twenty five year career as a journalist I covered many scientific stories and just as all of us do, I encounter science in its many forms in my every day life.
I don’t believe it is practical, realistic, or desirable to attempt to neatly separate learning and the subjects we learn into compartments the way some kids, including me, separated their food into separate sections on their dinner plates. (The psychological reasons for doing that would make a good science article!)
It is fascinating to explore how relevant science is to ordinary people in their daily lives, and certainly it is as relevant to us as it is to scientists in their white lab coats. We all occupy the same oblate spheroid, earth, and the more we learn about it the more knowledgeable home owners we will be.
Let’s read more science stories.
