Envisioning Beautiful Chemistry: Bubbling

This series of short, artful science videos captures chemical reactions that generate gases, and the bubbles that those gases make their escape within. Beautiful Chemistry: Bubbling was filmed by Beauty of Science, a ...

The Genius of Marie Curie

Dr. Marie Curie transformed science and society with her discoveries. Her scientific partnership with Pierre Curie and the story of their heroic efforts that led to the discovery of polonium and radium are legendary.....

How Kanazawa gold leaf is made

Far too delicate to touch with fingertips—just one ten-thousandth of a millimeter thick—gold leaf foil is an extremely delicate, almost transparent material. It requires a humid climate, pure water for the manufacturi...

Humphry Davy’s Potassium Volcano

Humphry Davy is one of the best know men of science of the nineteenth century. He isolated nine different chemical elements, was the first person to inhale nitrous oxide and invented the miner's safety lamp known as t...

One Town, Four Elements: Ytterby

There's a small town in Sweden that has not one, not two, not three, but four elements named after it. Those elements--yttrium(Y), terbium (Tb), erbium (Er), and ytterbium (Yb)--were discovered by part-time chemist Ca...

What can you do with a large neodymium magnet?

Neodymium magnets are really strong. The larger they get, the more careful you need to be to avoid being pinched or struck from the force of their attraction. This video from Magnetic Games cautiously explores what ca...

Metal crystals forming in time lapse

From Italy-based chemistry student Emanuele Fornasier, this is Crystal Birth, one of the many chem vids he's created as a video and photo enthusiast. He writes: This video is the beginning of a long term chemistry...

The Elements with 4 new elements – Helen Arney

There are four new elements on the Periodic Table: Nihonium (Nh), Moscovium (Mc), Tennessine (Ts), and Oganesson (Og) for elements 113, 115, 117, and 118 respectively. The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemi...

Elemental Burning – Beauty of Science

What happens to carbon when it combusts? What does sodium look like while it burns? In Elemental Burning, creator Yan Liang's team films the combustion of five elements: carbon, sodium, phosphorus, magnesium, and sulf...

Crystallization2, a 4K macro time lapse

The subjects of this project were droplets of saturated aqueous solutions containing various inorganic salts (e.g. table salt, sodium sulfate etc.). The evaporation of water initiated the crystallization processes ins...

The Man Who Put the Pee in Phosphorus

In the 1660's, German alchemist Hennig Brand thought he knew the secret to making solid gold: pee. So set was he on these golden ambitions, he dehydrated 1,500 gallons (gallons!) of human urine to make it happen. Thou...

Explore the Science Behind Fireworks—and the Galaxy

When you watch fireworks burst with color, you're seeing examples of how stars and galaxies work: Blues from copper, yellows from sodium, bright whites from aluminum, barium greens, and reds made from strontium... The...

How Small Is An Atom?

Using a strand of hair, your fist, rice and sand grains, as well as the room you're sitting in right now (assuming it's not a huge gymnasium), let's try to visualize the basic building block of everything around us: A...

The Ring of Truth: Two Hydrogen Atoms & One Oxygen Atom

Possibly the most well-known scientific formula on the planet, H2O is one of those terms that we see around all the time. We know that H2O means water, and that a water molecule is composed of two hydrogen (H) atoms &...

How do we study the stars & measure extreme distances in space?

How can we know so much about other galaxies? What are they made of? How big are they? How far away are they from Earth? "Want to know the secrets of the universe? Just follow the light." These two TED Eds fro...

To the Scientists of the Future: Materials science with EUPHRATES

Created by EUPHRATES and Masahiko Sato for Japan's National Institute for Material Science (NIMS), these three "To the Scientists of the Future" short films are a mesmerizing combination of materials research innovati...

Beautiful Chemical Reactions

Metal displacement, precipitation, crystallization, and more: This is Beautiful Chemistry, a 4K UltraHD short film project that aims to share how beautiful chemical reactions can be. From Tsinghua University Press and...

Everything You Need to Know About Planet Earth

When we wake up, eat breakfast, get ready for school or work, and head out the door, we may not be thinking about how unique our small, wet rock of a planet is. But the Earth is unique, and we're always happy to happe...
