The Science Channel

Just to get some science into my daily dose of YouTube, I put together a few videos that try to explain some sort of scientific phenomena. The first video won some prize for showing shampoo drip in slow motion which produced a stable Kaye effect. I would explain what the Kaye effect but I be making stuff up so you better check out the video.

The next video demonstrates a optical time illusion by have drops of water in sync with a set of strobing UV LEDs. The drops are falling in real time, that is as you would expect in your daily life, but because how they are filmed the drops seem to be moving backwards in time. Again, the video provides a better explanation.

The next video is an x-ray time-lapse movie of the solar wind in some crabby pulsar.
