The importance of science communication

Thanks for your comment. We hope that our articles explain how mathematical models reflect reality and the kind of interpretations you can make from these results. From our experience working with astronomers and scientists using climate models, they are always very aware of the strengths and limitations of their models. But often during heated discussions in public forums and the press these subtleties are often overlooked. We hope that magazines like Plus play an important role in helping scientists to communicate the technical details of their research in an accessible and engaging way.
