NASA has employed the services of GLaDOS from Valve’s Portal game to help in an educational video from NASA explaining the difference between Fusion vs. Fission.
So if you have ever wondered what the difference is between the two, check out the humorous video after the jump where GLaDOS makes it easy to understand, in her own unique way with a little help from two NASA technicians.
“The education video was produced by the education & public outreach department of NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope, focusing on STEM education. It addresses content included in the Next Generation Science Standards, PS1.C: Nuclear Processes
When a science-mad A.I. system (voiced by GLaDOS actress Ellen McLain) is installed at NASA, two hapless computer technicians learn the process behind nuclear fusion in the Sun, and how it differs from fission. “
