Borderlands Science Questions How did Borderlands Science come to be in the first place? What were some of the struggles of getting Borderlands Science off the ground? Did you have an idea ready to go or was it a longer process? Can you tell us more about the micro innitiative is? Why was the gut microbiom specifically chosen for this endevour? Can someone explain how playing the game helps with mapping the microbes? Why was Borderlands 3 chosen as the vehicle as this endevour? What happens to the puzzles that you don’t use? How many bactiria can there be in your gut? What is an alien bactieia? What are some of the initial results found with Borderlands Science? How did you come up with the rewards? How did Mayim Bialik end up on this project? Resources My Reactions
I don’t know of any other game that helped with science. I know back in the day you could allow your PlayStation to help calculate science stuff when you didn’t use it. Interesting that the Par score is actually the algorithm trying to solve the puzzle and beating that goal is actually exceeding scientists.
