NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, is home to the nation’s largest organization of scientists, engineers and technologists who build spacecraft, instruments and new technology to study Earth, the sun, our solar system and the universe. NASA Goddard’s 2016 rewind is a small sampling of the center’s highlights and memorable moments.
Clare Skelly, Rebecca Roth and I made this video. The video received a combined 127,000 plays across YouTube, Instagram and Facebook. The video also led to complimentary news coverage from around the Internet:
- The Washington Post
- Mashable (“light on music, but heavy on groundbreaking scientific research)
- Gizmodo (“the hottest mixtape of 2016”)
- Mental Floss
- The Mary Sue (“their mixtape is pure fire”)
- Thrillist (“a bangin’ mixtape”)
The video also received a hat-tip from Dr. Tom Zurbuchen’s Twitter account (Zurbuchen is the associate administrator of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate) and even a tweet from NASA’s flagship Twitter account.
