But definitely cool. Be warned, this young man is no amateur. He has degrees in Chemistry and Math and experience working in a research lab. But still…
Very nice. The next time a confused person tries to tell you that lighting goes from the ground up, show them this. What they mean is that the current flows that direction, but that is fairly meaningless.

Professor Ningyu Liu at the Geospace Physics Laboratory caught a beautiful lightning show from a recent storm. It’s recorded at 7000 frames per second and the playback speed is 700 frames per second.
Really great article detailing the fundamental forces in the universe.
If you like the physics of small objects you may like this…
Pretty complex. eh? Here is a better description…
Just had Chipotle tonight (ah, Guac) and saw this. Very interesting.
Student’s have expressed interest and concern over this virus. Remember, mosquitoes kill more humans that any other animal.
Another awesome video by VSauce, warning this one will make you think a bit…
Another fun video from Braniac…
Interesting stuff, math geeky, but interesting.
Great video from Smarter Every Day
I love when archaeologists look dumb. I know it’s petty, but they have been nasty to geologists many times.
Today in EPS I discussed chemical reactivity, and I used the element Fluorine as an example of a crazy reactive substance. Here is the video I mentioned. And the presenter’s hair is a comic bonus. Your welcome for that.
This may be very interesting. If the EM Thruster does work, and it seems to, then some of what we understand about Physics may change.
A Vampire Bat on a treadmill. You know, because.
Vampire bats are the only species of bat that can run.
A Bit Early.
The Royal Institution is a 200 year old charity based in London dedicated to connecting people with the world of science through events, education, and the CHRISTMAS LECTURES. “A scene of explosive Halloween mayhem as one Jack-o’Lantern spews molten iron into another filled with gun cotton, all in the name of science.”
Well, could he?
We now certain kinds of radiation are dangerous, but it is a danger we can’t see. Unless, that is, we use a device called a cloud chamber. The radiation causes trails in the super cooled alcohol vapor inside the chamber and we can see the emissions of radiation from a sample. Below is a sample of Uranium (Pitchblende).
To see how this was done, the following video shows the whole process.
Still at it. What a great guy.
Not the oldest, but pretty old…
In case you were curious. Another cool video from Veritasium…
