Journey to the Microcosmos

Readers interested in exploring the strange and intriguing world of the microcosmos will want to check out "Journey to the Microcosmos." This YouTube channel features a series of short videos that generate a lot of intrigue about the little parts of our world, reminding us that "there are things we cannot see that we must nonetheless watch out for." Most videos are around ten minutes long and explore various topics surrounding the microcosmos. Viewers can explore its history from beginning (see "How Do Microorganisms Reproduce?") to end (see "Death in the Microcosmos"). Though the channel is fairly new--the first video was released in June 2019--it has already gained the support of over 250,000 subscribers. The creative visuals and captivating dialogue used make the complex world of the microcosmos accessible to scientists and laypeople alike. And, with a healthy blend of humor and hard science, it's an excellent resource for educators in the field. The videos are narrated by Hank Green, with music production from Andrew Huang and visuals from James Weiss.
