You will choose a recent article on physics or technology from one of the newspapers or popular science journals listed in the instructions below. You will then act as a concerned citizen and write a letter to a world leader or public figure of your choice, in which you summarize the contents of the article, raise issues that the letterâ€™s recipient should be concerned with and suggest specific actions that the recipient should take in order to address the issues that youâ€™ve raised.
Choose the world leader or public figure for whom your letter is intended. The recipient must be a real person and should have some influence over the issues in the article.

You are welcome to be creative in your selection â€“ for example, you could choose an actor, a musician or an athlete who is known for speaking out on the issues in the article.
Explain: why you think the recipient should be concerned with the contents of the article, and describe the specific actions that you think the recipient should take in order to address the issues that you ve raised. Actions could include (but are not limited to) sanctions, a change in company policy, the passing of a bill, a public protest, a letter-writing campaign, etc.
