Public Perception of Science: Lessons from a Dead Sheep

A session at Skeptical Thinking at Balticon 49

Monday 25th May, 2015

3:00pm to 3:50pm (EST)

In 1997, the public learned that a sheep named Dolly had been cloned, and as it is wont to do, the public went nuts. In this humorous and informative talk, Dr. Adam Ruben, from the Science Channel's Outrageous Acts of Science, discusses the fervor that accompanied Dolly's arrival - and how unashamed people are to form opinions about scientific advances that they don't understand.
