Ship floating on sulphur hexafluoride

This short fun demonstration shows how a boat model can float on a gas that is significantly denser than air.

Richard Feynman explains the key to science in just over a minute

Richard Feynman is one of the men I admire the most. Here’s just 63 seconds in which he manages to catch the very essence of science.

Water balloons in 0 gravity

Aside from looking just awesome, these tests should also give new insights on water in 0 gravity and furthermore, inspire the new generation of space explorers.

Simulation of a black hole eating a star

Lightning in super slow motion

While I was browsing around youtube, I came across this particular video which just blew my mind. It’s pretty much what it says on the cover, so here it is.

Amazingly long fish filmed

Mark Benfield from Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge was undertaking a survey when he spotted this amazing oarfish at about 10 meters long.

Neil deGrasse talks about e=mc^2

Neil deGrasse is definitely one of my heroes, and the simplicity through which he manages to explain even the most complicated things is absolutely amazing. After the symphony of science, here’s him in a short video talking about what is perhaps the most important equation to date.

Amazing video of a drop of water in super slow motion portrays surface tension

Well, these guys explain it way better than I could, so watch the video, even if you are familiarized with surface tension. The super slow-mo frames are absolutely wonderful !
