So what is The Science Basement?

We are a group of scientists in training, who love communicating about the work we do.

Science is what brings us together, individuals and communities working to understand the world around us as it really is. As Einstein once said, ‘Science is the century-old endeavour to bring together by means of systematic thought the perceptible phenomena of this world into as thorough going an association as possible.’

We are enthusiastic about scientific writing, journalism, and outreach. We want to discuss new ideas, research topics and new knowledge generated by scientists, and broadcast it to a broader audience. One of our goals is to try and make complicated ideas simple.

Despite our enthusiasm, we are not all geniuses that make spacecraft with warp speed from Star Trek nor can all of us built fully functional armor suits like Tony Stark in our spare time. For us, science is an actual job and a career. TSB is a project aiming to show how science is actually done from the scientists' perspective, especially to those who have never met one. We want to show science as it is: from the trenches, or perhaps more accurately, as it’s like from the basement.

We are The Science Basement.
