This is a repository for all cool scientific discussion and fascination. Scientific facts, theories, and overall cool scientific stuff that you'd like to share with others. Stuff that makes you smile and wonder at the amazing shit going on around us, that most people don't notice.

Post pictures, vidoes, stories, or links. Ask questions. Share science.

Have fun, just know that posting about 'ammo-ing up' is incompatible with receiving pity for incoming fire.

Just a question: how do you explain radioactive decay?

So... mummies...



Check this link, for a list of virtual tours of many different Egyptian tombs and such available to the public. As well as many art museums.
I really enjoyed some of these....

For instance my favorite... the tomb of Pharaoh Ramesses V/IV: https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=NeiMEZa9d93

Tip: You can navigate to any circle on the ground, and zoom in and out as much as the resolution allows...

Very cool video with 2 outstanding observations:
  1. The Blue Angle pilot at 27:00 was one of the coolest cucumbers I've seen interviewed
  2. What the heck is that alien looking thing hanging on the wall over his left shoulder after the interview?

But that probably makes it a good simulator. I think the real deal takes more like 30 minutes.
Not bragging (well maybe a little) but got it on the first try. However, I'll admit it was the equivalent of a 90 year old woman doing a 16 point turn.

Probably my favorite thing about it is that it points out all the ridiculous stuff people used to believe (e.g., the four elements are earth, air, fire, and water), but by walking through it historically you can see how they got there and the logic of it.
I love Crash Course. I'm about halfway through their World History collection.

Crash Course and Kurzegast (or however you spell it) are probably my two favorite YouTube channels for learning.
