Lyre Bird Pulls Off Amazing Impersonations!

If you’re a fan of impersonations like I am, then you’ve GOT to check this out! The Lyre bird copies other bird calls and sounds in an effort to impress potential mates and the mimicry is absolutely spot-on!

Revolutionary Gel Stops Bleeding Immediately

In this fascinating TED Talk, medical inventor and a fellow of TED Joe Landolina, explains his amazing innovation, which is a gel that can instantly stop bleeding. And we’re not talking about knee grazes and cat scratches. We’re talking about life-threatening arterial wounds that could cause certain death unless stopped within minutes. Blood pumping out of an open wound at TWICE the normal arterial pressure can be instantly staunched with the application of this gel, which is surely an incredible breakthrough in modern medical science. What this means, particularly for soldiers in battle, is a much better chance of survival for the otherwise mortally wounded. And also, no stitches!

By the way, the bleeding wound in question was merely a sliced side of pork with a tube feeding blood into it, so don’t worry about being disturbed by any imagery.

World's LARGEST Cave Revealed

As awe-inspiring videos go, this is about as spell-binding as it gets. On the back of a drone, you weave your way through the world’s very largest cave, Hang Son Doong, which means “Mountain River Cave” in Vietnamese. This gorgeous cave is a yawning chasm within solid rock and, owing to the constant seepage of life-giving water into its belly, offers the local biology the most wonderful respite from the elements. As such and as you will see in this beautiful footage, life flourishes within the shelter of Hang Son Doong.

Keep an eye out for the people on the ground as the drone sweeps over the vast interior of the cave and you will develop a true appreciation of just how immense Hang Son Doong really is. If you want to see it for yourself, hop on a plane to Vietnam: Tân Trạch, Bố Trạch, Quảng Bình to be more precise.

How Was It Formed?

Hang Son Doong is a solutional cave formed in the calcium-rich limestone of the Phone Nka-Ke Bang National Park. Over the eons, a weak acid formed from the mixture of water and carbon dioxide gas released by plants (carbonic acid) has slowly eaten away at the alkaline rock, carving out this gigantic chamber beneath the mountainside. Hang Son Doong now houses its own rushing river, some of the biggest stalagmites in the world (70 meters tall) and a natural inner chamber that is in excess of five kilometres (or 3.1 miles) in length!

Incredible Tornado Footage!

Let’s take a look at some INSANE tornado footage from around the world! Why? Because SCIENCE! Here are 3 super exciting movies taken at ground zero:

#1 “Security Cam Catches Tornado Hitting Parking Lot”

Video Source: YouTube channel www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-Rz8iR1IGY

I’ve watched a lot of videos of tornados ripping through the built environment and what it would seem is that if you have absolutely no other form of shelter – the ideal shelter being a wine cellar – a car is the next best thing. In this awesome science video, a tornado tears through a parking lot, playfully battering the cars as it goes. While the rain “falls” horizontally and debris flies by faster than Britney Spears’ divorce proceedings, the wind never actually picks up a car and flings it as you might expect (or want, if you’re slightly sadistic like me.)

#2 “Amazing Tornado Footage”

A news report from a Kentucky TV news station shows video footage gathered during a tornado in the town of West Liberty. The evidence left in the aftermath is chilling as heavy wooden beams are left sticking out of solid walls like flakey bars out of a soft serve ice-cream.

#3 “Crazy Guy Runs into Outback Tornado to Take Selfie”

Video Source: YouTube channel www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7aRR86VfTY

Your perfectly stereotyped outback Australian takes a picture with a raging column of air known locally as a “Willy-willy” and in South Africa as a “dust devil.” I suppose it could fairly be called a tornado, although it was probably an F0 or F1 at best.

I wonder if Jason liked his selfie…?

WHOA! Aerial Video of Atomic Bomb Explosion

Need a little carnage in your diet, but don’t want to risk going to jail? Here’s a pretty spectacular aerial video of an atomic bomb detonating!

The test in question was called “Operation Buster Jangle shot Easy” and was performed in Area 7 of the Nevada Test Site on November 5, 1951.

Scientific Songs of Praise: Ho Ho Ho!
