Don Pettit, currently the oldest active astronaut, designed these space cups over a few different trips to space, and now casts and fires them for fellow astronauts. They’re the only nasa approved open-top cups, keeping liquid in and allowing pouring in zero gravity through fluid dynamics instead of gravity. 🤯 #nasa
absolutely nothing like getting brutally roasted by a 9 year old to knock you right off a tree
end of era at penn station. @mattyglesias gave me a tip on how to skip the lines for the train in 2014, and I’ve been riding the train a lot in those years. I’ve been going to DC a lot less lately as “explained” dominated so much of my 2018, and many of my coworkers in DC decided to move north. so the crucial 80s era schedule monitor missing in the photo won’t affect me quite as much anymore. “Explained” was just renewed, a baby is on the way, another big YouTube Originals show will make it harder than ever to see my friends down here in DC. But know that I miss you, I love you, and I hope I get to come down and hang out with you again soon. Even if I have to wait in the train line now.
the season finale of Explained publishes at midnight PST. Music, explained. It features @tokimonsta, the latest research on the neuroscience of music, narration by @carlyraejepsen, and this rad shot. making this show has been a dream and not only is it informing people, it’s opened so many doors for so many people. this show not only had a first time showrunner in @clarenceg, it put 12 people who hadn’t ever directed/produced for TV in that role for the first time ever — including for me on two episodes. and what’s more, we’re just getting started since you should already know vox video is magic. so many thanks to the talented people that made the show, and to the incredible supportive folks at Netflix and Vox Media that made it possible.
feel so lucky to work with such inspiring, wonderful people. We just locked the last of our 20 episode first season on Netflix. ❤️
If memory serves, it was exactly a year ago, in this place, headed back to work from a July 4th rest, when I got the call that Netflix was going ahead with our project. Took four months more to get a concrete budget and schedule and a plan. Another 6 before it launched. Today we’re about 2/3ds done with season 1’s twenty episodes while we continue jamming on YouTube and our peers call us a standard bearer for online nonfiction video. I always hoped our vision for vox video would travel this far, but now that I’ve seen us mint 12 first-time-for-TV producer-directors(including me), a first-time showrunner, dedicated people stepping up all over to take over the YouTube channel that Explained borrowed so many people from, and dozens more than I can list... it’s clear we’ll go way further. We’re just getting started. I’m proud to have been part of starting this train, but I’m way prouder that it’s too powerful for me to stop it. It’s great to be a fellow traveller with a crew that’s more talented, creative, ambitious, ethical, fastidious, and brilliant than anybody would wish. You’ve all taught me and each other so much, and hope I’ve been helpful to you in return. I’m so proud to work with, or to have ever worked with y’all. I can’t wait to find out what else we did and got started together by this time, in 2019. And if you’re wondering what the hell this is all about, type Vox into YouTube and Netflix. ❤️💪❤️ @jossfong @johnnywharris @estellecaswell @scheltense @cd.waters @ginabeananas @dionshrigley @mona.lalwani @vlapinski @chaubursin @snappymacky @swellis55 @deanpeterson_ @melissabell @ezraklein @mattyglesias @agolis @bankoff @ranjchak @ashleysather @quekmas @colemanbar @gaywonk @feministabulous @matteenm @mattvree @bultolaurus @jasonskoff @rubabshakir @mariecascione @saramasett1 @fxmatt4 @ianmcalpin @hjhewett @gabrielarays @corypopp @fletcher_wolfe @natedeyoung @visitinglights @alelimayv @bridgetthenwood @laurenwilliams510 @allisonrockey @mkbrangan @ajchavar @matthewsdylan @daralind @sarahkliff @zackbeauchamp @flichtman @tvoti @libbyanelson @maddiepmarshall (and apologies to all those many ppl whose handles I don’t have...
