Hey, made a short doc with an Astronomer at the University of Toronto who just recently found 10 super-agb star candidates... when there was only 1 prior. This has huge implications on how many supernova we can expect to see in the Universe and the elemental composition of the Universe. Check it out below!

This project got us thinking about the implications of showing the scientific process in a new light. This helps with the new expectations of science communication for researchers. The scientific process never gets shown or properly explained. Discoveries in Astronomy is never astronomer looks through telescope then Eureka! A discovery! There's so much more to it then just that. There's hours and hours of organizing data, analyzing the data and writing the paper. So I hope the short doc somewhat does it justice and hope to get some feedback!
