title: Planetary Science and Science Communication
abstract: The Third Science and Technology Basic Plan said that science communication is important. The necessity for communication between science communities and general public has become larger, such as the Japanese government's budget screening process in 2009, the HAYABUSA’s success story, the confusion after Great East Japan Earthquake, and so on. In this lecture, I will talk my practice of science communication at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation and discuss the significance of scientific communication in planetary science.
