NASA - Needs to Liven Up
How do you share science with the public? NASA has done some interesting live events recently. And I would argue its release of photos is brilliant. But its storytelling sounds very old fashioned - like a VOA Science Show of the 1980's. It is a lesson from a faceless reporter. We get quotes from a scientist read to us. And what I missed was the follow-up video explaining there is no connection between this asteroid and whatever fell on Russia a few weeks back.
And the scores? 0,5 million watch the NASA video. 31 million watch the unmoderated clip from Russia Today. NASA is missing a trick.
