Science after Noon: science journalism - how young people can make their voices heard

To launch the Prix Média Newcomer 2021 public voting, the two candidates Chloé Carrière and Simone Pengue present their projects «Galactic Chloé Show: Exoplanets and Astronomy with Michel Mayor and Claude Nicollier» and «Forgotten data: the leftovers of science».
