[Evan's Note:] Around two years ago, I came to my father and asked him if he'd like to make an educational series here on earth, furthering the work he'd been doing on the ISS. He'd just returned from space, and was trying to decide what to do after he published his first book.

We discussed what we might want to make. We looked at the examples set by true rock stars like Smarter Every Day, Minute Physics, AsapSCIENCE and Veritasium, and tried to decide how we could possibly integrate an entire series into what was becoming an incredibly hectic schedule.

We settled on animation, released free to the world on YouTube. Since we wanted a series fun for kids, adults, and everyone in-between, it seemed wrong to limit anyone from taking part through the platform itself. Soon, though, reality reared its ugly head and a problem became apparent: If we were going to fund that dream, we were going to need some help. Your help.

Today, we're incredibly pleased to announce that our animated series, It's Not Rocket Science, is prepped for a Fall 2015 launch (with 10 monthly videos in the first season). With Patreon, you can help take part in the journey. We'd love for you to join us and follow along as we watch this thing grow.

Finally - thanks to all of you for the enduring support so far. The response from fans is continuously overwhelming. I hope that this series can be my way of giving back. We're all so excited to be making this, and just know you're going to love it.

- Evan

Somewhere, on the edge of the solar system, a small probe laden with cameras and human ashes just reached its destiny.

What it's like to put on a movie spacesuit with Adam Savage:

I noticed that Hadfield commented that the bulge in front of the helmet gave extra room inside, and I wonder if that's a good thing, and if so, why? Does it make it harder to fog the faceplate?

Planetary striptease. Every image of Pluto reveals more of reality versus imagination.

+Pat Gunn The stars have no say in anything, its people who decided how to treat them and and name them. Yes science is all about making people happy, if they don't' they get nothing from people, and they do not work. You are right maybe it should not be,  but it just is...sorry!

+Gabrielius Kundrotas Hey Mate, Chris has been to space twice. Once in 1995(via Atlantis Space Shuttle) and in 2012(via Soyuz) and stayed there for six months. During this stay, he performed a Spacewalk to fix the "Canadarm" on the ISS.

Done. Bye. ✌🏻️😊
Love you Mr. Hadfield
You inspire me. 😌thanks.

I just washed dishes for the time it takes to do one complete orbit of the Earth. Sign of a good party.

+Paul McCarthy It would need to be a derived unit, like the liter. The abbreviation would probably be Hd.

46 years ago today we walked on the Moon.

Neil, Mike and Buzz inspired me to do something different with my life. I cannot thank them enough for the gift they gave us all.

I contacted Memofix to help repair a hard drive that had stopped working at the recommendation of friends. After having worked with them, I would be happy to recommend the same for my own. I spoke with Bob Giannoulis, who offered in-depth knowledge, a pleasant attitude, and a sincerity that can’t be faked. He was able to quickly assess and explain the problem simply, providing a step by step process to solve the issue. The payment process was smooth and my new HD works great. The level of customer service was beyond expectation, and they’ll certainly get my business for any future HD needs.
