In the long term, I recognize representation is hugely important in society & in science. I'll be doubling down my efforts to feature minorities and women in my videos. It's the RIGHT thing to do.
I'll be spending today: Listening. Learning. Planning. Uplifting. #BlackOutTuesday
To be silent is to be complicit.
This is not “my lane,” but if we are to bring about meaningful change to racial injustice in this country, we must all step outside of our comfort lanes, speak up, and most importantly, take action (more in the thread). #BlackOutTuesday

This week is making it clearer than ever why it's so important to break out of our networks and bubbles. https://twitter.com/BlackAFinSTEM/status/1267776218717396992
It's great that y'all are contributing to bail funds, but many of them have more money than they can use rn (thanks to your help) so I encourage you to ALSO donate to mutual aid funds! They help the ppl we're fighting for directly & are esp necessary during the pandemic. THREAD:

Reminder, you're watching the first rocket with humans on it leave the US in nearly a decade.
Perhaps more importantly, this is the first private spacecraft to carry humans to orbit - EVER.

Spoken better than I ever could. I agree with everything said, relate to some of the experiences, and was honestly moved to tears by this post. Thank you @MKBHD for your thoughtfulness. #BlackLivesmatter https://twitter.com/MKBHD/status/1266395018778103808

EEEK! There is a rocket launching into SPACE today in case you hadn't heard.
I got to be a tiny part of the livestream, and asked a question about what preparation the whole team (not just astronauts) goes through to get ready for a rocket launch. https://twitter.com/NASA/status/1265708327117430785

It's not as fun to watch YouTube videos when you make them for a living. But every once in a while, a video is so engrossing, hilarious, genius that you watch all 21 mins and 39 second. @MarkRober THIS one is my fav of all time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFZFjoX2cGg
