This camera shoots at 1 trillion FPS (most cameras shoot at 24 FPS). It makes time move so slow that if you wanted to watch a bullet go through an apple it would take 1 year to watch. That’s insane!
Space exploration is awesome, and today it seems like anyone with a camera and a balloon can do it!
From the YouTube description:
“In June 2013, a group of friends launched a weather balloon a few miles from Tuba City, Arizona. The amazing footage was found two years later by an Arizona hiker. Enjoy the video of our launch preparations, video footage, and some data analysis of the flight.”
That’s pretty damn awesome if you ask me. Watch out, we got some badasses over her.
Neil deGrasse Tyson is one of the coolest (and smartest) dudes out there. So let’s take a bong rip and let him explain what he believes is “The Most Astounding Fact”.
Skip to :25 seconds in to see this big meteorite falling from the sky in Bangkok, Thailand. From the time stamp on the dashcam this happened on September 7th (today) at 8:41 in the morning.
Forget those stupid Mentos/Coke fountain experiments because this Russian dude found out you can just add some propane to a bottle of Coke and turn it upside down to make an awesome rocket! Here’s the YouTube description translated:
Liquid gas is mixed with cola instantly turns into a gaseous state, while increasing in volume by more than 500 times! Departing from a bottle of cola with foam creates a gas jet draft and bottle accelerates like a rocket!
Now I know it’s still early so this might be a little gross for some but I find it fascinating. This is what a heart of a blue what looks like after it’s been cut out (I’m assuming they didn’t kill the whale to get it and it died of natural causes).
Yes, if I had to make an educated guess I’d say the whale is dead.
If you’re still up this late, mindlessly cruising the internet, then have a midnight snack on this video. “Zenosyne” is the sense that time keeps going faster and faster. This video is strangely beautiful and sad.
In this video some dudes threw a basketball off of a dam and watched it fall strait down. Then they added a slight backspin to the ball as they dropped it and it took off sideways as it use the Magnus Effect.
In this clip Stephen Colbert talks about the Pluto pictures from the New Horizons spacecraft, and he’s joined by science rockstar Neil deGrasse Tyson. You should watch the entire thing because they’re both awesome. And if you have an hour I highly recommend watching this video of Colbert interviewing Neil deGrasse Tyson:
What if you could remember everything? And I mean everything! I would give that a big hell no. I spend the majority of my time trying to forgot the awkward shit I do every day.
