Bernard Pellequer
Director of Géospace Observatoire d'Aniane, France

Experience with the relationship between science and its popularization shows the importance of personal contact. For more than twenty-five years, Geospace Observatoire d'Aniane, in southern France, has served as an interface between the world of research in Earth Sciences and those of the Universe. Those active on the site work in close collaboration with research workers in these disciplines, making information available at the local level in a variety of ways. A plea is made in favor of scientific popularization at the general public level, at which a real debate on the role of science can take place.
