INVITED TALK: Why Does Anyone Care about Dinosaurs, Pluto and the Higgs Boson Anyway?

"Frontier science" is often a euphemism for "esoterica with no practical use" or "too complicated for you to understand, anyway." It is the opposite of "news you can use."Precisely because of that, science stories can capture the imagination of the public - not just scientists- in a way that few other stories do. Successful communication of science takes advantage of the curiosity that people have about the big questions.
