Science can be tricky to understand, and the media doesn’t always do the best job of making it accessible. This blog aims to to break down the confusion and explain the key parts of new and exciting science in a way that’s open to everyone.

My name is Tom Barratt, and I am a physics graduate from the University of Nottingham. Having written for a national science publication and completed an internship in science communication at the European Southern Observatory in Germany,  I look forward to continuing my career in the world of science writing and journalism.
