A month ago NASA released a Hubble documentary video featuring Brent Spiner. Today, they have upped their Trek-ness with an educational Trek spoof about the Spitzer telescope, this time featuring Wil Wheaton (playing two roles). It is also available in 3D. Watch it below
Starship Spitzer: Bots of Both Worlds
In this video about recent discoveries for the Spitzer Space Telescope, Wil Wheaton voices the role of Irwin the robot and plays a parody of himself. The video borrows elements from Star Trek, especially the classic TNG episode "Best of Both Worlds".
More info and 3D version
Wheaton blogged about the video today, saying:
I’m super proud of this video, and I’m honored to be part of something like this, because it makes science accessible to younger people, while making it entertaining for them and for adults. You’ll notice that I didn’t say "makes science cool," because I believe that science already is cool.
