2008 COMMUNICATION AWARDS

Encouraging better communication among scientists in various fields and between scientists and the public is a key component of the FUTURES INITIATIVE. During the conference, the National Academies presented their 2008 Communication Awards to:

  • Walter Isaacson for his book EINSTEIN: HIS LIFE AND UNIVERSE, a comprehensive and scholarly ambitious look at the life and mind of the pre-eminent scientific figure of the 20th century

  • Bob Marshall, Mark Schleifstein, Dan Swenson, and Ted Jackson for LAST CHANCE: THE FIGHT TO SAVE A DISAPPEARING COAST (The Times-Picayune, New Orleans), an outstanding newspaper series that combined superb storytelling with the latest science in its call to action to save Louisiana's wetlands

  • George Butler (director), White Mountain Films, Kennedy-Marshall Films, and Walt Disney Company, for ROVING MARS, a spectacular film that chronicled the science and engineering behind the Mars rovers and followed their breathtaking search for water on the red planet. ROVING MARS was made with the cooperation of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and NASA and was presented as a public service by Lockheed Martin

  • Alan Boyle, MSNBC.com science editor, for selected works from COSMIC.LOG and his pioneering efforts to bring daily coverage of the physical sciences, technological innovation and space sciences to broad new audiences on a popular news Web site.

The awards recognize excellence in communicating science, engineering, and medicine to the public. The winners of the four $20,000 cash prizes spoke to conference attendees about their experiences communicating science.
