I like that, it was very well done.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

I watched "Beakman's World" growing up (with Paul Zaloom) - here's one episode:

Blatant plagiarism of His Divine Posts!  >:(

Actually, what I wanted to point out is, go to that YT channel and check out the rest of David Butler's stuff. He has three video books out, and they are certainly worth watching for any one with an interest for physics and cosmology, but who doesn't necessarilly have the Math™ or the patience to follow the heavier stuff like Leonard Susskind's lecture vids.

Interesting if not actually fun. Echos of what hapoened on London's Millienium Bridge, randomness turning to synch caused by pedestrian gait compensation and a natural harmonic turning into amplificstion of its inherent sway.

Turn your volume low...

Watched that before, good graphics but . . .

With the stars moving away from the viewer one expects them to get smaller anyway. This distracts from the actual visual size comparison, a side-by-side line with a parallel tracking camera, pulling back but with all the line always in view, effect might have been better. O K, the planets soon get too small to represent, but that is part of the picture - on the universal scale we live on an insignificant, microscopic blue dot.

I fully agree that it could have been done a little bit better.

That was fascinating, with great implications for medical diagnostics and monitoring!

With ever faster, smaller and cheaper technology Star Trek like monitoring systems are not far away maybe..
