Is the Silver Screen the Key to Successful Public Outreach in Solar and Space Physics? Journal Article uri icon



  • In this time of continuing fiscal stress and economic meltdown, it is especially difficult to obtain support for the disciplines of Earth and space science. For example, my field of solar and space physics desperately needs a way to attract new attention to its important work.History shows that even in the direst economic times, people still flock to motion pictures. Thus, new hope lies in us remaking classic films with a space physics twist. Here I present an illustrative set of such classic film remakes. Each film would be remade from a Space Physics and Aeronomy (SPA) point of view with leaders of SPA in starring roles.
