Astra Documentaries

BEAM Oh oh oh ho ho ho! Oh my goodness. I have not been able to stop watching these educational animations made for the satellite company, Astra. They are the most perfect vision of  modern take on the 1950's science book style that I love so dearly. Plus, they are totally fascinating - I mean, do you have any idea what happens to a satellite when it dies? Maybe you think you don't care, but these animations are an incredible example of how learning - about just about anything - can be a glorious, aesthetically inspiring journey of discovery. Yay.
