While popular crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter and Spot.ushave been a game changer for aspiring journalists and creatives, they've yet to be a budget resource for scientists. RocketHub's #SciFund Challenge wants to see if they can change that. From now until December 15, the crowdfunding platform is promoting 49 science research projects that anyone with a credit card can support. Topics range from whole-body depression to more exotic projects like the forcefulness of duck sex and a parasite that turns fish into zombies. Users post videos promoting their ideas and offer escalating incentives for donations.
