Stuff we saw on youtube! (redux!)
Rather than unburying the 18-month-stale thread, how about a new place to drop videos you found interesting that aren't music?

I'll start:

drop videos nukes

Kurzgesagt's videos on nukes are very good. They got so popular that the Red Cross at some point asked to make another one.

That's a great channel, but when it comes to pure Science I normally switch to something else. Take a look at how the subject of strange matter and strange stars has been analyzed, and with notable differences I may add, by Kurzgesagt and Space Time.

Captain disillusion,  one of my favourites... Just slow to upload, that's the price of quality content from a one man band.

Watched Drachinifel's video on the sinking of HMS Hood last night.  He goes into great detail about possible causes of the fatal explosion and why some of the popular theories (including plunging fire) are probably not the culprit.  Good stuff, if you're into naval history.

I've seen a few Spacetime videos and I was very impressed by the level of depth they were able to communicate. I'm so used to pop science videos just being dumbed down summaries of Wikipedia articles but I learned some very novel ideas from that channel.
The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

I agree, PBS Space Time is great at that.  :nod:

Nobody's allowed out over here anyway.   I nominate E (as a fair and just overlord) to arrange a Zoom HLP Social.

A very good look at a difficult subject.
