The ground looks like a mirror in this stunning time lapse of salt flats

The world is a beautiful place but it’s even more stunning when the ground acts as a mirror and reflects the sky. Here is a beautiful time lapse of the world’s biggest salt flat in Uyuni, Bolivia filmed by Enrique Pacheco. It’s such a perfect reflection that you can’t even tell which side is the sky and which is the… » 4/30/15 9:46am 4/30/15 9:46am

Hypnotic hyperlapse of Paris teleports you all over the beautiful city

Maxime Gaudet's hyperlapse experiment video of Paris lets you jump all over the city in 3 minutes. The video moves at such a frenetic pace that the feel of the video doesn't quite match up with the feel of the City of Love but it's still a lot of fun to watch because it feels like you're teleporting all over the place. » 3/29/15 11:00am 3/29/15 11:00am

Awesome time lapse shows the Earth turning and not the stars

This is so cool. Usually time lapses show the night sky of stars moving around Earth but we know that's not true, it's Earth that's moving and rotating and turning.

It Took 25 Hours of Continuous Concrete Pouring To Build This Aquarium

When the Miami's Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science opens in 2016, it's going to have an absolutely bonkers aquarium—imagine a giant camera lens, tilted on its side, that lets visitors walk below the tank and look up into it.

Clever video shows how a beautifully intricate snowflake gets formed

Here's a clever video that shows the "formation" of a snowflake. It's actually footage of a snowflake melting but it's played in reverse so it seems like we're seeing the birth of a snowflake. But even though it uses that bit of trickery, it's such a beautiful process to see. I wish we could see it in real life. » 12/08/14 10:55pm 12/08/14 10:55pm

Watch a 55-Day Overhaul of the Largest Passenger Plane in Two Minutes

Emirates' very first mammoth Airbus A380 has racked up some crazy stats since first being delivered to the airline back in 2008. And after 3,000 takeoffs, 12.5 million miles, and 1.2 million passengers, it's no wonder the plane's first major checkup took a total of 55-days. Thanks to the magic of timelapse, though,… » 11/20/14 10:40am 11/20/14 10:40am
