Description


Woven with the author's own experiences as an astrophysicist, Rescuing Science peels back the layers of academia to reveal how science actually operates, why it's so powerful and vital, and yet like any human endeavor, flawed. From fraudulent research to a disdain for the public, scientists have sowed the seeds of mistrust...and they alone can fix it.
