I am endlessly amused by press releases. I get a lot of them (as a professional science communicator I subscribe to quite a few mailing lists), and it’s interesting to see how they frame the news. Sometimes, it’s a big discovery. Sometimes, it’s a bit of news about progress on a piece of equipment or mission. And, sometimes, it’s just a tidbit about a pretty picture.
