Galileo was the first Science Communicator ever [Astro et al Ep.7]

How to engage better with the public? Can astronomy be used as a tool for education? In this conversation with Pedro Russo, we talked about the importance of science communication, his story as the coordinator for the International year of astronomy, IYA2009, his work in the Universe Awareness program, science communications as a research field, how to work with celebrities to communicate astronomy, what is the International Astronomical Union, and of course, so much more.
