Voices of scientists heard more clearly as EarthSky launches new websites

The words and wisdom of the world’s leading scientists are heard more clearly now, with the launch of 2 new websites by EarthSky in the last quarter of 2009.

The new sites – EarthSky and EarthSky en Espanol – are designed to make it even easier for users to listen to the hundreds of science podcasts produced by EarthSky in English and Spanish each year. These podcasts feature many issues important to people in the 21st century, fun and interesting facts about science, plus leading scientists speaking about solutions to challenges in the modern world.

Both the Spanish and English sites feature interviews with scientists and daily skywatching information. The English site also has a blog.

“Now, more than ever, scientists are at the forefront of designing and devising solutions for 21st century problems,” said Ryan Britton, managing partner of EarthSky Communications, Inc. “I’m thrilled that we’re launching new websites that will highlight scientists’ voices and their important work.”
