No story on the Science News website is complete without visuals. And when it comes to videos, those visuals have lives of their own on other platforms. In addition to incorporating videos into some of our articles, we also post videos to the Science News YouTube channel and the Science News magazine Facebook page, where thousands of people watch them each year.
We tackled all manner of subjects in video form in 2017— from popular events like the eclipse to significant discoveries like the detection of gravitational waves from colliding neutron stars to basic scientific questions like how tuna steer. Our most-viewed videos reflect this variety.
