What makes volcanoes erupt? - Steven Anderson

Physics
Dig into the science of how new volcanoes form, and what causes their unpredictable eruptions.

Turbulent Flow is MORE Awesome Than Laminar Flow

Physics
Everyone loves laminar flow but turbulent flow is the real MVP.

GOING SUPERSONIC with U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds!

Physics
The reason it took so long to release is the high amount of research I wanted to do before releasing the video.

This equation will change how you see the world

Physics
The logistic map connects fluid convection, neuron firing, the Mandelbrot set and so much more.

How to Fall from ANY HEIGHT and Survive

Physics
Some creatures can theoretically survive a fall from ANY height. How? Kyle explains the science of fall damage.

The Great Acceleration

Physics
We’re in the middle of a rapid, unprecedented, and world-changing increase in the intensity and scale of human activity on this planet.

3 Perplexing Physics Problems

Physics
Why does shaken soda explode? Does ice melt first in fresh or salt water?

How to STEAL Elon Musk’s Space Car

Physics
What would it take to steal the only road car currently crossing the cosmos? Kyle outlines a villainous plan that he totally doesn’t approve of.

Making Liquid Nitrogen From Scratch!

Physics
I used a nitrogen membrane and Stirling cryocooler to liquefy nitrogen out of the air. For this video I partnered with Starbucks to celebrate their Nitro Cold Brew.

Physics
We're working on a time-series problem called a Sequence Classification.

Why Earthquakes Are So Hard To Predict

Physics
Scientists are trying to figure out if they can predict big earthquakes by simulating small quakes in labs and studying big quakes under the ocean. Thanks to the University of Rhode Island for sponsoring this video.

How Microwaving Grapes Makes Plasma

Physics
A bisected grape in the microwave makes plasma. But how does it work? A grape is the right size and refractive index to trap microwaves inside it.

Are Negative Ions Good For You?

Physics
Do negative air ions improve mood, anxiety, depression, alertness?

The Inverse Leidenfrost Effect

Physics
Droplets levitate on a bath of liquid nitrogen and are spontaneously self-propelled.

How does a whip break the sound barrier?

Physics
April Jennifer Choi is a Mechanical Engineer and Professional Whip Artist from Peoria, IL. She has a Master's Degree in Computational Fluid Dynamics as well as several Guinness World Records in Whip Cracking.

The Best Test of General Relativity

Physics
A launch mishap led to the best experimental confirmation of gravitational redshift.

This Particle Breaks Time Symmetry

Physics
Increasing entropy is NOT the only process that's asymmetric in time.

Which Way Is Down?

Physics
Vsauce host Michael Stevens digs deep into the ever-changing concept of the direction "down," what causes things to fall, and digs into how masses really, really want to pull towards each other in our universe, thanks to gravitational forces.
