Ran across a video of the Sagan text from Cosmos mentioned earlier.

The film below is a space shuttle launch from the perspective of a solid rocket booster, one of the giant white rockets attached to the belly of the shuttle during its ascent. Thanks to a tiny camera and contact microphone attached its frame, you can ride along with it as it sends the shuttle into orbit, then free falls back to earth. There's not much going on visually until the boosters separate at about the two-minute mark--but after that, it's a film even Stanley Kubrick would be proud of.

Awesome. I like how, when they get jettisoned in the super thin atmosphere, the smoke gets blown away at crazy speeds, but the little sparks just float peacefully. Physics is rad.

The most detailed picture of a sunspot ever captured in visible light.

I just realized that neither Sixty Symbols or the Periodic Table of Videos have been listed here, which is almost criminal. They are the best science videos on the web, hands down. Go watch them.

Dude is able to stick his hand into liquid nitrogen for a split-second:

My hand is like a red-hot poker to the liquid nitrogen, but an insulating layer of nitrogen gas forms- a phenomenon known as the Leiden-frost effect- keeping my hand safe and warm for a fraction of a second.

Video and science stuff:

I'm pretty sure that at least 3 people on this very forum have put their hand into liquid nitrogen: Oball, Tiim, and I. It is something everyone seems to do the first time they get a dewer of liquid nitrogen.
