Oxford is home to one of the world’s leading Jet Engine research centers and therefore it’s not a total coincidence that we’d like to dedicate this article to a short and hilarious (but fascinating) animated movie about jet engines.
Created by Oxford Sparks, the animated short seen below shows you how a jet engine works, how it’s made and what it looks like inside one of those highly sophisticated pieces of technology. Oxford Sparks is a web portal (by the university of Oxford) that gives people around the world a free sneak peak into some of the intriguing science happening at the Oxford University Research Facilities.
In the video we can see Ossie, the curious and super friendly green Popsicle who’s the main character in many of the animation created by Oxford Sparks. He’s been inside the Large Hadron Collider, made a journey through the human brain and has investigated the causes of heart attacks.
