I write this on what feels, to me, to be a monumental day for science: LIGO, a large-scale science experiment, announced the detection of gravitational waves between two black holes, while women in STEM were celebrated on the Inaugural International Day of Women and Girls in Science. Days like this are rare. As scientists, we accept that the fruits of our craft can be underappreciated, a tale of null results and wrong hypotheses. The story of LIGO and the celebration of women in STEM reminded me of an experience that shaped the way I approach research and showed me the importance of communicating our science.
