Cosmic Data Stories

Interactive data stories designed by NASA astronomers to inspire learners

of all ages to explore the universe.

Our Mission

The world is fast-becoming a place driven by data.  To address dire shortages of data-competency in the workforce, industry leaders are calling for educational pathways that teach people how to interact with data.  The Cosmic Data Stories (CosmicDS) project promotes public understanding of data science through engaging, interactive data stories.  

The project facilitates connections between astronomers who want to tell the story of a discovery and learners who can interrogate the data behind the story on their own, using easy-to-use but powerful data science and visualization techniques.
