Kurzgesagt are a team of designers, journalists and musicians who have set out on a mission to make science look beautiful and spread knowledge. Their videos explain things like evolution, time, space, global energy and our existence in this strange universe – all with a hint of optimistic nihilism.
Their latest video is an in-depth look at genetic engineering and how we use it for food, the controversy that surrounds it and the basics of how it all works. We’ve techincally been modifying the genes of plants & animals for thousands of years, through selective breeding. Genetic engineering is a very powerful tool, but it’s how we use it and why we use it that matters.
