A video recording of the meeting with Dmitry Vadimovich Naumov, DLNP Deputy Director for Science, Head of the JINR Neutrino Programme, Doctor of Physics and Mathematics, within the “Brunch with a Scientist” project was published on the YouTube channel of the Polytechnic Museum. The meeting was held in the restaurant Community Moscow on 16 May 2021. Dmitry Vadimovich answered the questions about the construction of the Baikal Neutrino Telescope, neutrino physics, how to study evolution of distant galaxies, about his way to science and why to invest money in fundamental research.

An overwhelming world of rapidly-evolving phenomena is squeezed into one second. Objects, matter, atoms, nuclei—specific processes unfold at every special scale in various time ranges. With this series of compact educational lectures, we will walk down the stairs of time ranges—milliseconds, microseconds, nanoseconds, picoseconds and even deeper. We will focus on the interplay of phenomena, and historical sketches about the first attempts of novice researchers in different areas will complement the narration.

The wide audience should know about scientific research. The audience needs it, and in the long run, scientists need it too. However, communicating science, one should act properly and not only have expertise in the subject field but also consider the target audience. There are plenty of formats and platforms for communicating science; however, they are not always efficient. Recently, the book “Explaining Science: Guide for Popular Science Writers” has been issued by Alpina Publisher. Igor Ivanov, a DLNP employee, shares his 20-year experience in writing popular science commentaries, analyzes typical errors, and describes his methods of writing a good popular science text. Inspired by this book, DLNP initiates an online talk on high-quality science popularization. We will discuss not only popular science literature but also other formats of scientific communications, particularly, their application to science advanced at JINR.
