  • About the Series

    In this three-part series you'll meet scientists whose research takes them outside the lab and into dangerous, accident-prone territory. Learn what to eat and not to eat in space, how to survive the deep freeze while still conducting research, and what happens when the animals you're studying aren't furry balls of love.

    Come exploring with us!
