Hip Squared Season 2 Episode 4

The Dragon Prince

The Dragon Prince

In this episode of Hip Squared, we balance the realms of science and fantasy. First, John talks about The Dragon Prince, an animated series on Netflix made by part of the team responsible for Avatar: The Last Airbender. Created by Aaron Ehasz and Justin Richmond, it tells the story of a pair of human princes and a rogue elf that must keep the last egg of the dragons safe to prevent a war. Its excellent animation and quality story-telling make it a series worth watching.

Then Troy illuminates us with information about the kilogram and how scientists have redefined it. He breaks down how its new measurement is tied to the speed of light and the atomic make-up of different elements. Troy explains these details in a way that’s rich but easily understood.

Produced by Maplex Monk.
