Phytoplankton: Arguably the Most Important Life on Earth

SciShow – Jan 27, 2020 – 7:02
There are incredible creatures living in the ocean that have the power to reshape the planet’s atmosphere – and you’ve probably never even seen them before. These microscopic critters are called phytoplankton, and almost all life, both on land and in the ocean, depends on them. Hosted by: Hank Green

How I became an Astrophysicist | 2004-2020

Dr. Becky – Jan 29, 2020 – 14:47
I get asked a lot, especially by students, how I actually became an astrophysicist. So I thought I’d outline my path from high school to my current job at the University of Oxford.

Note this is focussed on the UK system but you should be able to draw parallels with your home country. Also note that my path was enabled by a whole heap of privilege as well.
