Science communication is a growing area of practice and research. During the past two decades, the number of activities, courses, and practitioners has steadily increased. But why is important to do Science Communication?
In the 21st century, a general knowledge and understanding of scientific concepts is required for making the best choices for our families, our society, our planet, and ourselves. Unfortunately, formal education often falls short on providing the necessary science-related skills, literacy, and proficiency for optimally navigating life. As such, informal science learning, often through effective science communication by research-active scientists, can play a vital role for a functioning society.
In my talk, I will show what are the activities that we carry out from the IATE and the OAC, in terms of public communication of science, outreach  and teaching. I will show the results of the practice of these activities, in social networks, media etc, and I will end with the idea of encouraging scientists to communicate their own research to the public.

Ponente: Luigi Foschini (INAF - Brera)
Lugar: Alberto Lobo

On June 30th, 1908, an explosion flattened more than two thousands square kilometres of Siberian taigà. During the following 111 years, several theories were proposed to explain the observed features. Basically, there is a general agreement on the collision of the Earth with a cosmic body, but still…

On June 30th, 1908, an explosion flattened more than two thousands square kilometres of Siberian taigà. During the following 111 years, several theories were proposed to explain the observed features. Basically, there is a general agreement on the collision of the Earth with a cosmic body, but still today there are doubts on the exact dynamics of the phenomenon and the nature of the body (comet or asteroid?). Particularly, I will address the atmospheric fragmentation and the possibility of a ground impact.
