Science Goes Hollywood: NAS Links With Entertainment Industry, Science
Excerpts: The National Academy of Sciences has launched a collaboration called the Science & Entertainment Exchange that it hopes will "be a service to all of Hollywood" by connecting scientific authorities to the people who produce, write, direct, and animate films and TV shows.
Editor's Note: More and more kids perceive the world increasingly through movies and video games. To connect back to the real world it is important to convey the information where physical laws end and the domain of phantasy begins.
