Here are 5 of the weirdest discoveries of this year from RiAUS.
A clever video from AsapSCIENCE: “Lets use this to remind the world how science NEVER goes out of STYLE!”
Below is an incredible video from Daniel Stoupin which won the Visual Science Award at the 7th Annual Imagine Science Film Festival.
“Slow” marine animals show their secret life under high magnification. Corals and sponges build coral reefs and play crucial roles in the biosphere, yet we know almost nothing about their daily lives. These animals are actually very mobile creatures, however their motion is only detectable at different time scales compared to ours and requires time lapses to be seen.
Make sure you watch it on a large screen! You won’t be able to appreciate this clip or see individual cells moving in a sponge on a smartphone. This clip is displayed in Full HD, yet the source footage (or the whole clip), is available in UltraHD 4k resolution for media productions.

The answer to a common question: yes, colors are “real” and not exaggerated by digital enhancement. I have only applied basic white balance correction. When photographers use white light on corals, they simply miss the vast majority of colors.

The duration of sequences varied from 20 minutes to 6+ hours.
Below is a great video from Western Australia. The title says it all!
The wonderful weirdness of ‘magnetic putty’ from SHANKS FX.
Below is a video from the National Geographic Channel. Whereas the dialogue is a bit “Woah dude! OMG! Totally awesome! High five!” for my liking, I do like the questioning around making a prediction and the footage is totally rad! 😉
What do you think will happen?
Does anyone know the what the small amount of liquid in the dropper was that set it off?
