Resumen

CORNEJO MARQUEZ, Kenia  y  RODRIGUEZ SANTANA, Esther. The return of Halley's comet: The popularization of astronomy in El Imparcial, Mexico, 1910. Let. hist. [online]. 2022, n.26, e7362.  Epub 20-Feb-2023. ISSN 2448-8372.  https://doi.org/10.31836/lh.26.7362.

The return of Halley's comet in 1910 became a popular event because of its scientific importance and the controversy surrounding it. Although this event was publicized through different media, this paper aims to specifically study the popularization process documented in the Mexican newspaper El Impartial. Our methodology is based on qualitative content analysis, through which we identified four main themes: ‘scientific explanation', ‘controversy', ‘public interest' and ‘expectations for 1986'. The examination of these themes reveals the people who promoted the dissemination, the interests and strategies of the press, and the public's reaction.

Palabras llave : qualitative content analysis; Halley's comet; history of astronomy; popularization; Mexican press.
