    This is a very impressive series of marble and magnet based Rube Goldberg machine segments. The way it utilizes magnets in so many different ways is pretty clever. It reminds me of some sort of physics based puzzle video game you'd play on your phone. It really is worth a wa... / Continue →

    Note: 360-degree video worked for me in Chrome but looks like a headache in Firefox. Consider yourself lovingly warned. *kisses on forehead* This is a pannable, 360-degree tour of the Large Hadron Collider. The Large Hadron Collider is best known for being the world's mos... / Continue →

    In news that's sure to have Einstein rolling perming his hair in his grave, scientists at the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) laboratory have confirmed the existence of gravitational waves (aka ripples in space time). The waves, first predicted by Ei... / Continue →

    This is an interview between Neil DeGrasse Tyson and physicist Brian Cox in which Brian explains to Neil that lightsabers actually could bounce off each other, despite being made of light (previously Neil argued they would just pass through each other with no interaction). The... / Continue →

    These are several videos starring physicist Andreas Wahl proving various scientific laws by falling 40 feet attached via rope to a kettle bell, sliding through fire, and firing a rifle at himself underwater. Technically he's not risking his life like I said in the title though... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Physics Girl demonstrating all the pretty patterns you can make with some ferrofluid and glow stick juice. She explains some of the physics of what's happening to the ferrofluid and glow sticks while she's experimenting with them. TRUE STORY: I ate a gl... / Continue →

    This is a video explaining the Magnus effect, or why a spherical (or cylindrical) object with spin on it will curve from its principle flight path. It is a commonly observed phenomenon, particularly in ball sports. Baseball pitchers use it all the time! It does not explain b... / Continue →

    Hoho -- some of them are really trying to get up there! This is a video of a bunch of gummi bears being shot at a thonged ass and filmed with a Phantom Flex at 5,000 frames per second. Something about better understanding physics. I don't know about this lady, but I would be... / Continue →

    Alternatively, open them all separately in half the time it takes to set this up. This is a video of a guy and five friends using a folding ruler to open five beer bottles simultaneously. Physics! They all seem super excited when it actually happens, leading me to believe th... / Continue →

    The following is Neil DeGrasse Tyson's favorite science joke. It's perfect for those of you who are into physics and corny science jokes. It's not so perfect for those of you who don't know what a Higgs boson particle is, and only like penis jokes. Obviously, it was complete... / Continue →
