This video tells the story of a female geologist, Marie Tharp, whose groundbreaking work in mapmaking helped bring the theory of continental drift into the mainstream. Her ideas (which a male colleague initially dismissed as “girl talk,” 2:34) have helped shape what we know about Earth and its geologic history.
The characters and themes—a persistent woman, scientific truth winning out—make this story feel very contemporary. Plus, it’s all accomplished through clever animations of both the characters and the visualizations of the complex ideas they discuss.
