Watch in full-screen and prepare to have your mind blown.

Very informative and fascinating, at all five levels. For instance, a black hole isn’t a thing, per se, but should more accurately be called a place.

YouTuber and NASA scientist Mark Rober applies the scientific method to these new “impossible” burgers.

Gav and Dan, The Slow Mo Guys, learn about tranquilizer dart physics using slow mo as a helpful tool. Don’t try this at home unless you have 400lb gorilla running at full clip towards you.

Adam Savage’s Tested first project with Boston Dynamics’ Spot robot gives it a novel purpose: pulling a custom-built carriage with Adam as its passenger! Watch Adam give Spot some Victorian flair and the interesting problems that arise in marrying cutting-edge robot technology with vintage transport.

How could a body of water as big as the Mediterranean just…disappear? It would take decades and more than 1,000 research studies to even start to figure out the cause — or causes — of one of the greatest vanishing acts in Earth’s history.

Destin of SmarterEveryDay and his buddies built a monster home run batting machine.
