There’s a new science blog out there: The X-Change Files, which is the official blog for the Science & Entertainment Exchange. What, you may ask, is the Science & Entertainment Exchange? From their website,
The Science & Entertainment Exchange is a program of the National Academy of Sciences that provides entertainment industry professionals with access to top scientists and engineers to help bring the reality of cutting-edge science to creative and engaging storylines.
If I understand this correctly,their purpose is to: (a) help scientists present an accurate picture of what science is all about through the entertainment industry, and (b) help filmmakers develop science-themed stories that are entertaining and for the most part accurate. (And maybe a little less like this all the time.)
The blog will cover news related to science and the entertainment industry, and will feature contributions from many distinguished folks, including Jennifer Ouellette of Cocktail Party Physics and Twisted Physics and Janet and Jerry Zucker of Zucker Productions!
This will be one to keep an eye on, I would say!
(Thanks to Jennifer for letting me know about it!)
