Seeing pills dissolve in water is bizarre and almost jarring

A container ship traveling around the ocean at night is one of the most beautiful things

I literally gasped in disbelief when I first saw this timelapse by Toby Smith of the Gunhilde Maersk at sea. It goes from Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam to Ningbo, China and the night scenes are unbelievable.

Trippy hyperlapse of Los Angeles captures its unique beauty

Los Angeles is too big and unwieldy to be considered a real city, especially since the only aspect of city life is the collective 5 mph spurts on the freeway during rush hour. Not to mention that its machine is responsible for so much that is awful in mainstream culture (celebrities! plastic surgery! excess!) that you… »8/21/15 2:00am8/21/15 2:00am

Watching flowers bloom is like seeing plants come alive and dance

After watching this wonderful time lapse of flowers blooming, I would forgive you if it made you think that flowers have their own personalities and feelings and lovable qualities. I believe it too!

Apple’s new campus is in the process of being built right now and it truly does look like a space ship is being constructed in sleepy Cupertino. Here’s the state of things so far, from August 2014 to May 2015, a pile of Mars-colored dirt is being transformed into a closed circle from the future. Pretty cool.

Watch how seeds grow into vegetables in these fascinating time lapses

It’s shameful but I think it’s true for most of us city dwelling non-farmers: almost all of our experience with fruits and vegetables come from the grocery store. We’re completely clueless on how things grow and what they look like in the farm. Here’s a few quick time lapses that show how radishes and broccoli and… »5/29/15 12:31pm5/29/15 12:31pm
