I use creative writing to translate highly technical aerospace information to non-specialist audiences. I analyzed scientists’ views concerning their civic responsibility to communicate scientific/technological information. Methods for writing about science and technology were investigated, these analyses were applied to technical information about the Saturn V rocket and Dr. Wernher von Braun. The result was an article written to emphasize the benefits and importance of space programs to the public by exploring the ubiquitous use of developed technologies in ours lives.
