The Nature of Science

A rather informative video for the general public on the "Nature of Science". What is even amazing is that it was produced by a college senior as a class project.

"The Nature of Science" was Proctor's senior project as a WSU student. He finished it in April of this year, and it's regularly shown on the planetarium dome. A grant has made it possible to turn the movie into a DVD for use in local schools. The show is also being translated for use in planetariums in Argentina and Turkey, and a copy was sent to a reviewer for a magazine aimed at planetarium professionals.

It takes a bit of a simplistic route, but maybe that's the only way to go when trying to present such a topic to non-scientists. So I'm not going to nitpick over it.
