The Christening Of A New Science Writing BlogPosted: February 13, 2012
A wealth of stories is buried in the expansive world of science journals, laboratories and field work. Some of these stories are transformative and send ripples through the media and public perception. Others are part of the slow, grueling, invisible process that makes science itself the credible entity on which so much of civilization is based. All of these stories — and the characters in them — have a part to play in the even wider tale of modern life.
This blog is about science and the telling of it through stories big and small. Its authors are graduate students in the Master’s in Science Writing program at Johns Hopkins University. We’re a plucky bunch, drawn into this hybrid of art and data from wildly different directions, each with a eclectic set of interests. We hope you enjoy reading our stories, musings, explanations and explorations as much as we enjoy sharing them!
