Open Culture brings together high-quality cultural & educational media for the worldwide lifelong learning community. Web 2.0 has given great amounts of intelligent audio and video. It’s all free. It’s all enriching. But it’s also scattered across the web, and not easy to find. Open Culture’s whole mission is to centralize this content, curate it, and give you access to this high quality content whenever and wherever you want it. The science section contains videos from NASA’s tour of the Earth from outer space to an animation of how a flu invades your body.
