Good idea, bad idea: Rock Stars of Science

Rock Stars of ScienceA short review of Rock Stars of Science.

Good idea: Show scientists in a context besides in a lab coat, with safety goggles, pipetting some coloured liquid into a flask. And what’s cooler than rock and roll?

Bad idea: Reinforce the idea that the only reason to do science is to cure disease. No physicists, no ecologists, no chemists (unless you’re a biochemist), no mathematicians, no astronomers...

Bad idea: ... No women.
