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. Building it, as you might expect, entailed a feat of perfectly-timed engineering. » 12/24/14 9:40am Wednesday 9:40am

Watch the World's Most Complete Stegosaurus Skeleton Being Assembled

First discovered in Wyoming, the world's most complete Stegosaurus skeleton has found a new home across the pond at the Natural History Museum in London, England. And you can now watch the museum's curators and palaeontologists re-assemble one of the world's oldest and best-preserved jigsaw puzzles. The process… » 12/19/14 1:55pm 12/19/14 1:55pm

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

The most accurate, highest resolution video of Earth ever made

This Earth video created by James Tyrwhitt-Drake using footage from the Elektro-L weather satellite—a Russian satellite that takes one 121 megapixel image of Earth every 30 minutes—is the highest resolution video of our home planet ever created. Watch it in all its 4K glory here. » 11/20/14 1:17am 11/20/14 1:17am

Time lapse: An empty city in black and white feels so eerie and lonely

This short time lapse by Bruce W. Berry Jr is already a powerful piece of work. It turns the buildings of Philadelphia into towering monoliths that hide people away, it makes the sky look like ghouls seeping in and it turns the city into a haunting place. Sadly though, the story behind this time lapse is even more… » 11/06/14 12:54am 11/06/14 12:54am

Stabilized time-lapse of the night sky clearly shows how Earth rotates

It's no wonder that the uneducated minds of antiquity—and some simpletons today—were anthropocentric. The Sun, the Moon, and the entire sky seem to revolve around us. We are so special, they thought. Except we are not, as Copernicus discovered. This cool stabilized time-lapse clearly shows how Earth rotates. » 11/06/14 12:22am 11/06/14 12:22am

The largest hot air balloon festival in the world is breathtakingly epic

Time lapse anything and it immediately turns epic. Take something as kooky as the annual hot air balloon festival in Albuquerque, New Mexico where 750 hot air balloons get together to lift off and put it in a time lapse video and it looks absolutely incredible. It's like a ballet in the air. » 10/30/14 10:23pm 10/30/14 10:23pm

New time-lapse technique bends the spacetime fabric

Photographer Julian Tryba sent us this crazy time-lapse of Boston which, actually, is not a time-lapse but a layer-lapse: The objects in each sequence—buildings, vehicles, the sky—run at different speeds and times than others. That's because he has layered them, animating each layer separately. » 10/13/14 3:51pm 10/13/14 3:51pm

This thunderstorm might be crazy but Kazakhstan looks beautiful

Kazakhstan looks nothing like what Borat showed me! All jokes aside, the nature in the country looks amazing. Wanho Lim put together some timelapse footage for the Kazakhstan National Museum of his month in the country and came away with some stunning shots. That thunderstorm, especially. » 9/26/14 12:22am 9/26/14 12:22am

Driving in Los Angeles somehow looks awesome in this time lapse

I hate driving, I really do. I especially hate driving in Los Angeles. And even though I know it's impossible and unreal for me to ever feel this cool driving (unless I turn into Ryan Gosling), this time lapse by Gavin Heffernan makes me want to get in my car and drive through Los Angeles forever. » 9/20/14 12:49am 9/20/14 12:49am

Watch the High-Tech Levi's Stadium Being Built In a Dazzling Timelapse

Earlier in September, the San Francisco 49ers' spanking new high-tech stadium opened with its 600 WiFi access points and green roof and hot dog-ordering app. But just 29 months ago, Levi's Stadium was an empty lot in the ground. The entire stadium takes shape in this two-minute timelapse video. » 9/19/14 2:16pm 9/19/14 2:16pm
