Welcome to my blog about Science and its relationship with the public. I am Maitreya Venkataswamy, currently a first year Aerospace Engineer at the Georgia Institute of Technology. I will be posting entries about scientific literature and the way it is consumed by the public. My perception about science throughout high school was that science was only dealt with by scientists for the most part. But recently I have come to the realization that science plays a huge role in the public, whether it be in technological advancement, health issues, or even ethical issues. One of the things I hope to accomplish with this blog is to understand this relationship between the public and science even more. Hopefully, the result of this blog will be a starting point for any others who wish to do the same and understand better how the public consumes science. Along with the blog posts I will have several other pages, one of them being a “Works in Progress” page. This page will contain various other writings of my own that are not related to blog posts, but are relevant to science and the public. These could be drafts, peer reflections, or compositions that are unfinished. Thank you for visiting the site, and I hope you enjoy reading these blog entries.
