Welcome to Night Vale Wiki

The Children's Fun Fact Science Corner is a recurring segment on Cecil Palmer's show on Night Vale Community Radio. It offers a kid-friendly, educational take on a variety of scientific topics, such as how weird the moon is,[1] the meanings of birds,[2] the horror of the void,[3] the horror of the non-void,[3] measurement,[4] the dangers of deer,[5], the many things children need not be afraid of (because everything is perfectly fine),[6] and of course, the terrifying possibility that consciousness can survive death.[6]
