    Cosmic Shambles creates and curates entertaining content about the universe through science, art, history, philosophy, music, literature and comedy. The site was borne out of The Incomplete Map of Cosmic Genome, Utter Shambles and Book Shambles online magazines. A selection of the content from them is now available for free via Cosmic Shambles, but to access the entire back catalogue, which includes over 160 films, exclusive interviews and contributions from 150 well-known names in science, a paid subscription is needed. The free content in the Cosmic Shambles site is presented in the form of podcasts, documentaries, interviews and several blogs. The range of subjects covered is impressive. For example, neuroscientist Dr Dean Burnett explains differences in taste (why some of us love jazz and other hate it?); the life and work of physicist Richard Feynman is celebrated in the documentary All Genius, All Buffoon: 100 Years of Richard Feynman; there is also an in-depth interview with plastic surgeon Fiona Wood who invented the ‘spray on skin’ for burns victims.

The site can be searched by Countries, Economic sector, Nationally Determined Contribution, Global Historical Gas Emissions and Future Scenarios, where users can model projections of emissions.
