1. NASA GeneLab — This Is GeneLab


    from Hello Monday / Added

    What happens to the human body in microgravity? Wounds heal slower. Infections develop faster. Bones grow thinner. The very building blocks of life - DNA, RNA, the structure of proteins, and molecular signaling networks - undergo drastic change. NASA GeneLab conducts cutting-edge biology experiments to understand the principles that drive those changes. And it all happens 220 miles in space, onboard the International Space Station. The discoveries made here attempt to push back the frontiers of understanding on Earth. This is science amplified. This is research beyond gravity. This is GeneLab. Agency — Hello Monday. Script — Sam McMillan. Photography — NASA. Aerial footage — Rasmus Kahlen. Microbiology footage — Simon Park. Time lapse — Cole Gentry. Music — j.viewz. Voice artist — David Bateson.

    • Open research

      The video provides an introduction into Open research and the concept of Beethoven's open repository of research (or a GitHub for science) that we are trying to build. License: CC0/Public Domain. Open research is the concept of scientists sharing their research with the world as soon as they record it for themselves. This is essential to make research more efficient than it is today. Research resembles a puzzle: a heap of pieces has to be assembled into a coherent picture. Yet some of the pieces are unknown, and traditional non-open science keeps much of the remainder hidden behind barriers erected by pre-digital reputation and reward systems. Open science means tackling research problems collaboratively by sharing research tools, data, materials and code as they arise and by building on the shared work. As Beethoven said, "There should be only one repository of research in the world, to which the artist would donate his works in order to take what he would need." Ideally, scientific research would be in the Public Domain by default, and Beethoven's repository would be federated rather than centralized. Concept: M.
