The Art of Science Television


In a world where the public understanding of science is diminishing, NOVA's Paula Apsell makes a strong case for NOVA's tradition of depth and substance, tackling the most pressing issues in science, in a thoughtful and visually complex manner.

Presented by the Department of Physics
Distinguished Pappalardo Lecture

“Our programs
have to not only be true to the science, but understandable and
engaging to a general audience with no science background. … So how do
we operate within those constraints, to tell a story that people will
watch without sacrificing accuracy and depth.
My own husband, true to his MIT Physics roots, once told me I needed to
have the courage to put equations on the screen.
