What are your favorite subjects regarding science?

My current science interest resides in physics - particularly cosmology and quantum physics. I admire Hawking and Feynman but claim no one as a hero. Complex patterns such as geo-mechanics and weather systems fascinate me to no end.

Where do you currently get your science news?

The web: Scientific American; TED Talks; Discover news; Edge; EarthTouch; Sciencemag.org; WeatherUnderground.com; DarkSyde's posts at DailyKos

What do you think will make science more appreciated and interesting to the general public?

Weather always gets people's attention. As global climate asserts its reality and immediacy, people are bound to pay attention to the immediate and long-term ramifications of change on such a large scale. Also: sciences that focus on a small scale, such as the giant hadron collider, provide their own caché to potential science buffs.

Introduction

When have I not been interested in science? I spent many youthful years in nature. This probably translated into a brief stint in scientific illustration many years later.
