In a Nutshell – Kurzgesagt

Finalist in Science

About In a Nutshell – Kurzgesagt

The YouTube channel In a Nutshell – Kurzgesagt (German for “said short") prizes quality over quantity, putting out roughly one video a month, with well-researched—and animated—answers to great science questions, like “What Is Life? Is Death Real?" Their science reports run between 2–7 minutes and are speedy, beautiful, and informative, tackling the border between science and philosophy, heavily entrenched in their viewers’ responses and comments. Sometimes follow-up articles are posted on WaitButWhy.com. In 2015, the independent creators released a video explaining Facebook’s dubious “view stealing" tactics in an effort to educate their audience and take back creative control, with some viewers claiming Facebook buried the video.
