    Astrophysicist Dr. Neil Degrasse Tyson was asked by a reader of TIME magazine, "what is the most astounding fact you can share with us about the universe?" This was his answer, coupled with beautiful visuals and music.

    For about two years I have been subscribed to the youtube channel MinutePhysics. This video is a combination of this channels 3 best videos. Schrodinger's Cat is the idea that the act of observation forces the universe to collapse into one reality, while also creating another reality inside of a greater multiverse. The Theory of Everything is describing the surprisingly simple equation that describes almost everything in the universe (excluding gravity, neutrino oscillation, and dark matter). Finally the sound of hydrogen section is so cool that I don't even want to describe it, just watch the video.

    So, I found this video online explaining how the orbital weapon "Odin" in Call of Duty: Ghosts is a very real threat through calculating the weapons kinetic energy being transferred into the earth on impact. This video also includes an example of an actual weapon that is currently being built that uses the same concept, except this real world version is code named "Thor". Coincidence? I think not.

    When I habng out with my firends, I like to make short films. The process is rather easy, but to make them look believeable and funny you need to use a decent bit of physics. In my one short film entitled "Wolfy Wipeout", my friend Peter had to repeat the same motion over 10 times to get it perfect with him in his costume. The action he was trying to pull off was a believeable reaction to being punched and then falling to the ground. Most of the time I used to much power in the hit and the mask swung around his head, while other times, when my friend, Peter, fell to the floor he just colapsed or got his tail caught under his foot. It is rather difficult the actual actions people would make in a realistic situation.
