Best of YouTube – Issue 1 – April 2011

Having been inspired by some of the other blogs I read – I’ve decided to start finding YouTube videos I think show Science in a good light. Hopefully this will be the first of many…

Robot Surgeons

Robots are now dextrous enough to be able to help surgeons perform operations – this one is so good it can be used to make and throw a paper aeroplane.

Northern Lights

Not the book – the beautiful Physics of fast charged particles from the Sun being slammed into the atmosphere along the magnetic field coming from the Earth making the air glow.

The Known Universe

The Universe – as measured and shown as a trip from the Himalayas to the edge of what we know.


Finally a clip from Science@NASA explaining superfluids – where liquids at very low temperatures stop behaving how we expect them to behave – explaining them from an Astrophysics leaning.

Slow Mo Water Balloons

By popular demand…

  1. I know its quite a bit different from these videos, but have you ever watched the videos where they pop a balloon full of water, but in slow motion, or where they throw a water balloon into someone’s face in slow motion. There are quite a few of them that are quite interesting as well as funny 🙂
