RAI (Italy)

Silvia Rosa Brusin

Silvia Rosa Brusin is the director of “Leonardo”, the first television news broadcast entirely dedicated to science news, on the air for 15 minutes daily at 2:50 pm on the channel RAI 3 since 1992. She is specialized in astronomy and astronautics; In recognition of her work in bringing science to the public at large the International Astronomical Union named an asteroid after her (7396 Brusin). Thanks to her initiative, NASA sent a digital copy of Leonardo da Vinci’s self-portrait and his Codex on flight to Mars. It is inserted in a chip aboard the Curiosity rover, currently at work on the Red Planet. She also created the first news reports for Italian television about GMOs and stem cells.
