Of all the excellent forms of public outreach NRAO offers (and has been doing for years), there has been one missing element of engagement: web-hosted videos. Our webpage and social media feeds are rich with radio astronomy and science content targeted for the science-interested public: sci-fi fans, astronomy nerds and students, and of course, astronomers, educators and scientists. However, we didn’t have a way to closely capture and replicate that face-to-face, direct conversation experience that could reach more members of the general public. After many months of development and experimentation—searching for a dynamic host and combining the creative talents of our staff—the Baseline video series was born!
