Welcome to Night Vale Wiki

Among the residents of Night Vale are several groups of scientists. They tend to live in Night Vale's Science District[1], despite the obvious dangers posed by scientists living in close proximity.

Carlos leads a team of scientists[1]. They are:

The scientists of Night Vale Community College (NVCC) include Dr. Chelsea Dubinski in the chemistry department, and several unnamed botanists. There are also scientists working at Night Vale's underground Pulsar Development Facility; a group of meteorologists who held a press conference about the sandstorm and wouldn't shut up about raccoons[5]; the scientists who gathered outside Cecil's broadcast booth to warn the town about the deadly transformations of wheat and wheat by-products[6]; and Joel Eisenberg, Night Vale's only flying dinosaur expert.[7]

Another "scientist" is Simone Rigadeau, a transient living in the Earth Science Building of the NVCC, who despite not actually working for the college, nor having a known scientific qualification, manages to explain many of the weirdest phenomena in town. Simone also teaches a course in the university, as it is said in The Hierarchy of Angels that intern Kareem decided to join it. Kareem is fascinated by Simone's knowledge, as Cecil says Kareem thinks she can explain what happened to Night Vale, and why nobody knows Michigan. Simone also believes the world has ended in 1983, and she argues for that in any occasion.

Cecil frequently talks about groups of scientists in his broadcasts without specifying which group he's talking about, referring to them as simply "the scientists." Then again, as Cecil says, "We have all been scientists at one point or another in our lives."[8]

Science is weird in Night Vale, where enormous earthquake go unfelt, the sun seems to set in the wrong time and laws of nature are being often broken.
