Supercluster Explains: Citizen Science

Supercluster Explains is a video series that illuminates basic space science concepts using short, easy-to-understand animations. This episode explains how big science questions can be answered with the help of ordinary people, without scientific backgrounds.

Citizen Science projects leverage the power of the internet to accomplish large scientific tasks, so our educational video on the subject did the same. Recycling, rebuilding, and remastering internet and personal computing artifacts, instead of starting with storyboards.

This was a blast to make.
