1. dip a spoon of gallium in a glass of hot water
2. make a bubble with smoke instead of air
3. dissolve the tablet in weightlessness
4. set fire to the energy-saving lamp
5. push two identical clouds of smoke
6. create a vacuum in the empty tank
7. set fire to the smoke from the candles
8. overturn the glass with smoke
9. pour the hot solution in a plastic cup [x]
Chemistry demos are the best.
I god damn love chemistry
If this doesn’t fit on your blog, you’re doing it wrong.
I never knew how much I wanted this. When I inevitably teach a lot of high school science courses I must use this gif.
I fucking love this
wow this is the best thing ive ever seen
This is what happens when you run water through a 24hz sine wave.
A brilliant series of minimalist typographic tributes to scientists and their discoveries. I especially like the Copernicus one :)

In which we learn at http://blogs.smithsonianmag.com/science/2012/08/these-rainbow-colored-transparent-ants-are-what-they-eat/ that ants change colour depending on what they’ve eaten. It’s science.
so oxygen went on a date with potassium today…it went ok.
i thought oxygen was dating magnesium…omg
actually oxygen first asked nitrogen out, but nitrogen was all like “NO”
I thought oxygen had that double bond with the hydrogen twins
looks like someone’s a HO
i’m done with all of you

Go watch some science!!!!
I have been waiting for this moment my whole life!
HEY GUYS THE LIGHT AND COLOR ONE HAS A MEGADETH PARODY IN IT I WATCHED IT IN SCIENCE CLASS AND ALMOST DIED
Scientists successfully generate gasoline out of thin air
Breakthrough technology takes carbon, hydrogen and oxygen from CO2 and water in the air to create methanol and then converts it into gasoline.
We’ll never hear about this again. And we may never hear from those scientists again.
Big Oil’s gonna be piiiiiiiiissed
Somebody go put these folks in the witness protection program before they get hits put on them by ExxonMobil
just in time for me to get my first whip
PUT THIS EVERYWHERE.
Now HERE’S a post that needs 4 million notes!
I’ve actually heard of a man mysteriously disappearing after he refused to the government to not go through with his making of a substitute of gasoline with water. So everybody needs to reblog. Seriously.
YOU COULD SAVE THESE SCIENTISTS LIVES. OR AT LEAST THEIR VOICES.
reblogging again for the mysterious disappearance wtf
“Look up at the stars.” - Professor Stephen Hawking at the Paralympics Opening Ceremony, in circular Gallifreyan.
“By altering the structure of the carotenes and carotenoid pigments in the watermelon, the group was able to “reprogram” the watermelon’s genetic code to create a product with flesh in various hues based on a simple input in the first two weeks of the watermelon’s growth cycle. According to researchers, although the watermelon may look vastly different on the inside, the actual taste and nutritional benefits of the fruit remain unchanged.”
Cosmic sink-holes or Black Holes is a region of spacetime from which nothing, not even light, can escape. The theory of general relativity predicts that a sufficiently compact mass will deform spacetime to form a black hole. Around a black hole there is a mathematically defined surface called an event horizon that marks the point of no return. It is called “black” because it absorbs all the light that hits the horizon, reflecting nothing, just like a perfect black body in thermodynamics. Quantum mechanics predicts that black holes emit radiation like a black body with a finite temperature. This temperature is inversely proportional to the mass of the black hole, making it difficult to observe this radiation for black holes of stellar mass or greater.
Black holes give me the biggest science boner
We behold thee, and a haze,
Prometheus, dims our eyes,
Of awe and of many tears for thee,
When we look at thee on this rock and see
Thy body parched by hot rays
And fettered with iron in shameful chains.
But now in Olympus a new lord reigns,
And Zeus kings in lawless guise,
By laws that are wondrously changed of late,
And those who were great
In the ancient days meet a pitiful fate.
-AESCHYLUS, Prometheus Bound
Saturday. June 23rd is the centennial birthday of our modern Prometheus. A single human who afforded a wealth of knowledge that has altered the way in which we in the modern world do everything.
A human persecuted, criminalized and dehumanized for the ways in which he expressed his human love. A human that in desperation took their own life committing suicide by eating an apple laced with cyanide.
A mythology almost forms in the spaces between these bits though it is completely true.
Alan Turing was homosexual. In 1952 the British government charged him with ‘gross indecency’ and afforded him the non-choice of imprisonment or chemical castration Just under 10 years since he had cracked the ENIGMA and single-mindedly ended WWII.
He is the outcast and criminalized father of computing.
Do not forget him, what he gave us and what was taken from him.
I’ve never asked this before but, reblog.
