New Bionic Boots Let You Run 25 MPH (40 kmh)

Bionic boots let you run as fast as a car (well, a slow moving car). These springy shoes mimic an ostrich’s gait, and though it may look a little funny, they let you travel at up to 25 miles per hour (40 km/h).

This Music Video is A True Symphony of Science

This music video is a true symphony of science. Here, we see artist Nigel Stanford blend flaming Ruben’s tubes, Tesla coils, ferro fluid, and hose pipes with sound waves to create some simply stunning art.

Welcome to the Sixth Mass Extinction Event

Over the course of Earth’s evolutionary timeline, millions, perhaps billions, of creatures have died off.

Knitting Needles, A Sheet of Paper and a Water-Filled Syringe Make an Interesting Science Experiment

Astronaut Don Pettit, who, in a blog for NASA, conducts a number of different experiments in microgravity, once had the idea to demonstrate how water droplets behave in space. So he decided to pack appropriately, bringing 3 different knitting needles with him on the ISS. What happens is really quite amazing.
