Recently I was one of 25 people selected to attend NASA’s Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) Media Day at their location in Goddard, Maryland.  Aside from learning about the MMS, I also got to look at how NASA cultivates public relations and provides professional development for their scientist and engineers. Attention big companies – take a page from NASA on how to run a successful and informative media day.
