Kurzgesagt is a channel based almost entirely around science communication. An important difference between science communication and science education is that one tries to meet folks where they're at in order to broaden understanding of the world, while the other tries to help students grow into a deeper understanding of the world. In the video, they explain one of the most important tools: models, and the oversimplifications that make them effective. It's honest, straightforward, and helped us at Kirala settle into a sense of being open to not-knowing while learning new things. At times, we'll have to oversimplify while communicating, too, and we'd prefer you to know that that's what's happening, rather than wondering why.
Ask interesting questions, get interesting answers. Light is not an ephemeral emission of the universe - it has force and dimension.
