Video of the week: rare angler fish footage


Posted by Sabrina Doyle in Wildlife on Friday, December 5, 2014

Video of the week: a year in the life of Earth's CO2


Posted by Sabrina Doyle in Science & Technology on Friday, November 28, 2014

In this particular visualization, the timespan of January 2006 through December 2006 is simulated.

The effect is an dynamically fluid display that brings to mind stirring (very colourful) milk into (very colourful) coffee. Or as NASA ...

Jim decided to pick up his camera; the resulting mini-documentary is this week’s featured video.

Video of the week: laser beam vs. liquid droplet


Posted by Sabrina Doyle in Science & Technology on Friday, October 31, 2014



Talk about slow-motion. In this scientific experiment, researchers went down to a nanosecond time scale to record a millimetre-sized drop of liquid being hit with a laser. See what happens when they make the laser more or less powerful! Spoiler: at one point, the liquid generates plasma.
