Episode 112: Goggles Holiday Cheer!

The goggles team spreads the holiday cheer with news of habitable planets, the end of microbeads, a discussion of sitting vs. standing, and more! In honor of these terrible microbeads we have exploded our graphic this week into thousands of little pieces, but to science it up a bit, each piece is a tiny brain. We also did the inverse of that too. Happy Holidays from Goggles Optional!
