Wow. A million wows, really. Here’s a truly spectacular image from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter that shows Earth in all its glory from the perspective of being on the surface of the Moon. It’s an Earthrise and it’s just gorgeous and amazing to be able to “see” it. The image was “composed from a series of images…
When you first see where skier Aymar Navarro is trying to go, it doesn’t quite register in your brain. Like, no, it couldn’t be there. And then you look at the inevitability of his ski line at Cerro Torrecillas in the Andes and you’re like holy crap, he’s really going for it. It’s like he’s skiing into a funnel, that…
Wow. This totally looks like the beginning of World War III but thankfully it’s just Operation Trident Juncture, a military exercise by NATO. But not just any old exercise, it’s the biggest military exercise NATO has done in decades and one that required 36,000 troops and more than 140 aircraft and 60 ships from over…
This is behind the scenes footage from some commercial that Hyundai shot that basically toured the world. I have no idea what the final commercial looks like and I don’t really care because I’m totally obsessed with this truly spectacular footage they got of cities around the world from the vantage point of a…
It starts off a little cartoonish but then it quickly turns creepy and almost squeamish as the hand starts to legitimately look like it’s been sliced to expose the blood, guts, and bones. Luckily, for us and for Natalie Nakles, the artist who did this, it’s only the work of markers, pens, and clever camera angles.…
The captain of this ship must be a master Tetris player or a savant when it comes to that time wasting iPhone parking game or at least, be the inventor of the three-point turn because his maneuvering of this tanker, the Galway Fisher, into the narrow Port of Galway is simply incredible to see from up top.
We’ve seen the Jellyfish Lake in Palau before, but man if it’s not one of the most stunning places in the world. There are million of jellyfishes in the water and even when you see this video and know that it’s completely real, your brain automatically forces itself to believe that it’s CGI and fake.
I love occasionally blowing my brain up and nothing does it quite like when I see something that looks real but is actually a perfect photorealistic drawing. Take this glass of water, it’s drawn with such skill and shading and angling and plays on your perspective so well that I feel like I can reach out and take a…
The newest high-speed camera on the block won’t be making its way into Michael Bay’s hands anytime soon, but it will be making his ‘splosions look rather poky. See, this camera will be helping scientists watch atoms zoom around at 28,000 miles-per-second.
My brain struggles to believe that this black swan—featured in the new McLaren 570S commercial—is not a real animal but an awesome render. The video compares the aerodynamics of the swan and the car by putting the hyperrealistic CGI bird inside a wind tunnel.
A Go-Pro camera was recently found outside of Kristianstad, Sweden, after its skydiving owner lost it during a jump. Remarkably, the camera was still functional, but even more incredible is the footage it captured during nearly 10,000 feet of descent.
So, apparently people jumping in front of cars and feigning injuries for money is a thing. But now, tough times have befallen these con artists, thanks to the fact that video cameras are literally everywhere.
National Geographic's Your Shots features this spectacular picture of a scuba diver swimming under a massive shoal of fish at Cabo Pulmo, in Baja California peninsula, Mexico. The picture, shot by Californian photographer Jeff Hester, shows a colorful ocean full of life but that wasn't always the case:
The guys at AtomCentral uploaded this video depicting the failed test of the Atlas missile back in 1961. The footage—scanned to HD from the original film—shows the rocket exploding in an epic and mesmerizing slow motion that would make Michael Bay drool.
When I saw this video of Swedish skier Erik Sunnerheim zooming over the ice while carving with a chainsaw two thoughts popped into my mind: At first I though it was super fun and wanted to try it right away but then, all the things that could go wrong started to pile up in my brain taking the shape of a giant nope.
An inmate who was in prison for multiple charges of fraud is apparently up to his old tricks. Posing as a senior court clerk, Neil Moore, 28, used an illicit mobile phone to email fake bail instructions to prison staff, who released him. Well, that's embarrassing.
Don't be fooled: This is not Tony Stark's latest bionic arm. It's an incredibly detailed tattoo, one whose proud owner looks like he just stepped out of Neuromancer.
Wow. This is amazing. I knew cuttlefish could change their hue to blend in with the sea floor and protect themselves from predators. But I didn't know they could use that skill to create trippy light shows that put their prey into trance.
No one, not even these fighter pilots, can't resist a chocolate bar when the munchies strike. This video shows how the pilot in the front passes a Snickers bar to his colleague just by opening his hand and letting it float to the back of the cockpit dragged by the acceleration forces. So cool.
