Let's get out some awesome science stuff.

This is one of my favorites, an actual timelapse video of Jupiter, from Voyager:

I've always found pictures of Mars from the surface fascinating beyond words. Images such as this one. How can anyone look at that and not think "holy fucking shitballs I'm looking at a picture taken on the surface of another planet?" It reminds me that I'm living in the future.

I hope this qualifies as a science video, because this is really awesome:

I've always liked this image, with the accompanying Carl Sagan quote:



Quote
"Look again at that dot. That's here, that's home, that's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.
There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known."

Cicero wrote the "look from space at how tiny the world is, how vast the heavens are, and how ultimately meaningless worldly things be" speech 2000 years ago.  His science kind of sucked, though.

I haven't listened to the audio on this, so I don't know just how retarded the voiceover is, AND I'm not sure if I can really call this a science video since they had the bright idea to put it in the comedy category, but it's still pretty awesome:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2YZJt_Bw3eo" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2YZJt_Bw3eo</a>

"There is still a source of energy for the muscles in the form of unused ATP molecules stored in the cells. All that the muscles need is something to activate them and they can still contract and relax (until they run out of ATP or something else shuts down the biochemical machinery)."

Gross, but cool.

Did you know that when birds molt they lose their feathers symmetrically but when they are kept in captivity they lose their feathers asymmetrically?

I'm a connesiour of videos that show how large the universe is, and this one is by far the best. From the American Museum of Natural History.
