    Chris, fab presentation. Good highlights on the issues you addressed in the book. I think you summed it up very nicely. I didn’t know about the Rock stars for science. I agree with you that to better the image of who a scientist could be, we need to provide a more diverse picture. I definitely enjoyed your examples, and will go see the movies you discussed (often i can’t stand to see these because the “science” used is so implausible)
