Celebrities of Science: Making Science Popular

Carl Sagan in Action
Science needs public faces to tell its fascinating stories. A few scientists dared to step into the TV spotlight to make science accessible to a wide audience (and sometimes gain criticism by their peers for simplifying science too much in return).

I compiled a short list of some of the most popular faces of science on TV:

General Science
Physics and Astronomy



Wikipedia has an extended list of English-speaking popularizers of science. However, the world needs still more people who can make scientific findings accessible to the public.
