Animated: The Inspirational Story of Jane Goodall, and Why She Believes in Bigfoot

Now out. The sec­ond video in The Exper­i­menters, a short series of ani­ma­tions high­light­ing three “icons of sci­ence” and “what spurred their cre­ativ­i­ty.” Episode 1 brought us into “the Geo­des­ic Life” of Buck­min­ster Fuller. This new install­ment gives us an ani­mat­ed look at Jane Goodall, the pri­ma­tol­o­gist who has done such inspi­ra­tional work with chim­panzees. (Don’t miss last week’s fea­ture on her in The Times.) Draw­ing on a 2002 inter­view that aired on NPR’s Sci­ence Fri­day, this clip fea­tures Goodall recount­ing her life sto­ry — includ­ing how she got a PhD at Cam­bridge before get­ting an under­grad­u­ate degree — and it also veers into some fun ter­rain. Does Goodall believe in Big­foot? You bet she does.

The next video in The Exper­i­menters series will focus on Richard Feyn­man. Stay tuned.
