Here is a beautiful new video by Shreenivasan Manievannan, released April 21 in time for Earth Day 2015. It’s called The Untouched. It showcases the beauty of nature and tries to convey that “we can’t reverse time to travel back to bring back all that we have lost by mistake.”
When a missile or meteor strikes the earth, the havoc above ground is obvious, but the details of what happens below ground are harder to see. Duke University physicists have developed techniques that enable them to simulate high-speed impacts in artificial soil and sand in the lab, and then watch what happens underground close-up, in super slow motion.

Nautilus Live yesterday posted this wonderful video of the capture of a sperm whale by the ROV Hercules. The ROV – remotely operated underwater vehicle – was tethered 598 meters (1,962 ft) below the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Louisiana at the time.
