Ever since coming to Harvard, I've been involved with a graduate student group called "Science in the News." At SITN, the goal is to bring the fascination with scientists that graduate students have to a wider audience, and the flagship effort of the group is a series of lectures held every Autumn and Spring that presents complex scientific topics for a general audience. A few years ago, we started filming these lectures, and I just stumbled across the video of a lecture I was a part of that seems relevant for this blog.

Take a look, and let me know what you think:
