'Viral' stories can save the world

Stories that resonate can mobilize millions.

Popular Science and XPRIZE are teaming up to explore and explain technologies like these in a video series called Future First.

In episode fourteen of Future First, we take a look at how stories go viral, and how virility can mobilize millions toward a common goal. Helping to lead the discussion is Sean P. Wojcik, Ph.D., a Senior Data Scientist at Upworthy.
