Title --- The art of science and communication
Abstract --- NASA’s Exoplanet Exploration Program Communications team has teamed up with JPL’s “The Studio” to develop an engaging and immersive experience known as the “Exoplanet Travel Bureau”, where communications specialists, scientists, and artists will take you to destinations beyond our solar system to experience alien worlds. ExoComm and The Studio have developed an experience that engages the public and helps them better understand exoplanets - their existence, why we search and what the future of exoplanet exploration will hold. This talk will touch on key communications strategies that NASA has implemented to gain the public’s interest in an area of science that is not too well heard of. The audience will gain insight into how ExoComm and The Studio spark and maintain an interest in exoplanet science.
