Launch of NASA's CRS-11 mission on SpaceX Falcon 9

NASA and SpaceX successfully launched the eleventh Commercial Resupply Services (CRS-11) mission from KSC's Launch Complex 39A. The mission lifted off on a Dragon spacecraft perched atop its Falcon 9 rocket. It marked the first reuse of a Dragon pressure vessel (previously used on CRS-4 in 2014) and the 100th mission that has launched from LC-29A. Nearly 6,000 lbs worth of cargo were launched in the CRS-11 Dragon.

Sharpest picture ever of propellers in Saturn's A-ring

The Cassini Space Probe has made a crystal clear photo of propellers in the middle of the A-ring of Saturn. These are minor disturbances in the rings of Saturn, caused by a tiny dwarf moon. One of the biggest and most famous propellers is the Bleriot propeller. Amazing!

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: Levitation45s

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!

The difference between abs vs. fat51s

The difference between abs vs. fat

This healthy vs. unhealthy diet compares what you need to do and what you need to avoid to get abs instead of belly fat. Leading a healthy lifestyle is important to minimize current/future complications with regards to your health. This will help you lead a long life with minimal problems on your journey through it. Here are a bunch of different alternatives to the unhealthy food that you may currently be consuming in your day to day life. The common misconception to weight loss is that you need to exercise a ton, which is only partially true. A majority of weight loss comes from a change in diet. When the two are paired together, they become the foundation of a recipe to success. No one can force you to make the change, you are the only one that can. Become the change. Check out these healthy alternatives to unhealthy foods.

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.

Time lapse captures magnificence of Northern Lights

This breathtaking time lapse takes place during a few great periods of a particularly active Aurora Borealis around the area of Inari in Lapland, Finland. Inari is far enough north that you can see the northern lights nearly every night. Incredible!
