Hidden Figures and The Hope for More Real Science Stories

Commentary by Stephen Downes

I often puzzle over story selection by the media. I live in a world of research and education and science. These seem to me far more interesting and relevant that the world of pundits, crime and conflict reported by media. This story touches on that with respect to other media. "It seems silly that major studios now insist on churning out reboots and remakes that nobody asked for, and that rarely seem to succeed either critically or commercially, when STEM history has so many stories just waiting to be told." We need this sort of story in the news, not just fictionalized and presented in film.
