This is a video from Applied Science of a record playing under an electron microscope. Mesmerizing, isn't it? That isn't what I thought happened at all. I expected to see way more tiny wizards waving their little wands around down there making magic happen. That's not how vinyl records work though. That is how CD's and DVD's and Blu-Ray's work though, which is why they sparkle. Science!
Keep going for the informative video, which includes other media playing under electron microscope as well.
Thanks to hairless, who invited me to his DJ night tonight. I will be there.
