According to TIME magazine, the most influential person in the 20th century was Albert Einstein. A question for readers: do you think he achieved this only with physics?
I am convinced that science can be amazing and it represents one of the major milestones of the human race: it has allowed us to travel in space – by using hydrogen rockets we have sent astronauts to the moon – and in time – by means of carbon isotopes we have dated human remains buried for millennia under ice. We have formulae to calculate the lifetime of a star or the pressure that Superman should apply on a piece of coal to turn it into a diamond.
Nevertheless, I think that science alone can not change the world.
because science is the core but interaction is the key.

About me

I am a scientist and communicator who thinks that many of the most fascinating things happen outside the lab.
I work in strategic and creative communication and science relations, helping research organisations to develope better interactions.
Because I THINK science is the core but interaction is the key.
