About Massive

Are you science-curious?

That’s not a rhetorical question. Some people just can’t stop wondering. They take immense pleasure just from the act of learning more about the world. Researchers call this trait science curiosity, and it appears to be evenly spread throughout the population, independent of age, class, gender, race, or political affiliation.

Massive is the first community built specifically with these folks in mind. We started with the most science-curious of all – scientists themselves – by teaching them how to talk about their work in ways everyone can understand and enjoy. Our community of scientists is now over 100 members strong (and growing), and they want to discuss our strange and wonderful universe with other science-curious people. People like you.

Join us in creating new ways to learn about the world.

Subscribe to our mailing list for the latest articles from our scientists and opportunities to participate in the discussion. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for our favorite links, live chats, experiments, and more. Email us anytime at hello@massivesci.com with your thoughts, questions and ideas.

This is just the beginning. Over time, we plan to build new ways for you to connect and interact with this community – from online Q&As to live events to real, distributed research experiments you can participate in at home and beyond.
