“As an astrophysicist, I strive to get the public (especially children) to be curious about the universe, our place among billions of stars and our surroundings. Good science communication is essential to ignite this curiosity and convey the idea of scientific thinking in ways that are fun and easy to understand.” – Parshati Patel, astrophysicist and outreach manager at the Centre of Planetary Science and Exploration.
