For some reason “National kiss day” was trending topic last Thursday. I think there are some kind of kisses less trending topic than others. So kiss whoever you want. 

P.S.: You can vote for your favourite scientific illustration here. And here, you can see my proposal. You have a month to vote for the one you like. :) Thank you!

It is been a while without posting. This month I´ve been taking part in Il·lustraciència 4.

Il·lustraciencia is an international contest created with the objective of promoting scientific illustration.

Here, my proposal. It shows a specimen of Nymphoides and how different its tissues are. Nymphoides  are aquatic plants. They roots are sumerged and floating leaves with flowers.

“We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology.” Carl Sagan.

“The Ivory Tower” April, 2015. Watercolour, pencil.

 

Science drives us forward as a society, but people see modern science as a new alchemy. It scares us all and, when scientists try to communicate with the wider public, the language they use is often incomprehensible. Public recognition for the work of scientists and their findings is absolutely essential for the way science is perceived. When scientific research and its results are well founded and coherently presented, acceptance and funding are assured. Scientists must get out from our ivory tower and we must explain what we do and what for.

Scientists alone won´t change their way of science communication, we need also help from journalists and politicians. This effort needs to be done because increasing background scientific knowledge will help us living in an increasingly technological society.
