RE: The elegant nature of science
More like the elegant nature of ideology. Science has proven that there is nothing elegant in nature, it is full of violence, destruction and chaos.....unless that is what you mean by elegant.

Not a video but a very cool list of animals that may be brought back after extinction!

RE: The elegant nature of science
Planck has revealed some new observations regarding the universe:
"
  • The Universe is 13.82 billion years old.
  • The Universe is expanding a bit slower than we expected.
  • The Universe is 4.9 percent normal matter, 26.8 percent dark matter, and 68.3 percent dark energy.
  • The Universe is lopsided. Just a bit, just a hint, but that has profound implications."

RE: The elegant nature of science
A bit different from the purely scientific stuff in this thread, but I think this is way, way cool.

Advert turns air into drinking water.

"The panel produces clean water from the humidity in the air, through filters.
UTEC says it wanted to put "imagination into action" and show that it is possible to solve people's problems through engineering and technology.
"A billboard that produces drinking water from air," says the billboard up high. And it does what it says on the tin: so far, the billboard has produced over 9,000 litres of drinking water - 96 litres a day
."

Say what you will, but for all our shortcomings, we're one ingenious species and that makes me smile.

Impact that wiped out the dinosaurs was probably a comet instead of a meteor, less mass, more velocity.

Yes, that is what is meant by elegant. Dodgy
