Smash glow crystals in a blender

We put triboluminescent, or "Smash Glow" crystals in a blender. Triboluminescence is the effect of light being emitted when something is broken, smashed, or otherwise broken. The substance in this video is a particular type of chemical called triphenylphosphinebis(pyridine)thiocyanato copper(I). Enjoy!

Young scientist demonstrates the impossible: Levitation

Most of us would believe that levitation is impossible. Of course we know that magnets can attract or repel metal objects. But what makes it possible to lock an object in space and keep it there? Josh Van der Zalm, nano-science student places a super-cooled ceramic plate over a magnet and then shows how it remains locked in whatever position he places it in. He even demonstrates how the plate can be forced to levitate in a circular path over a track. You have to see it to believe it!

Electromagnetic Levitation Quadcopter6m18s

Electromagnetic Levitation Quadcopter

Filmed by Raquel Nuno, Edited by Trevor Carlee Obviously this "quadcopter" is a demonstration device, showing how moving magnets over a conducting surface can generate levitation. It has not been optimized to minimize losses or be an efficient mode of transport. I still think it's pretty cool. I'm used to seeing light things levitated by induced currents but not a 100+ lb machine.

I seemed to have no hope for a happy life at all.
