3-D model lets you "fly through" a 300-year-old supernova
The billowing radiance of the northern and southern lights is among the most beautiful sights known to humanity – and that's when seen from the ground. Imagine watching the lights from low-Earth orbit. Through the International Space Station's windows, 200 miles above Earth's surface, the auroras borealis and australis dance across continents. They're a regular treat for ISS astronauts who circuit the planet every few hours, passing frequently over Earth's polar regions, where the auroras are strongest.

Sandrine Ceurstemont, editor, New Scientist TV Auroras aren't the only light show shining above the Earth. The atmosphere itself can also produce light, creating rings of colour that glow in the dark. Now neuroscientist and moviemaker Alex Rivest has produced a new video that illustrates the phenomenon, called airglow . Atoms and molecules, excited by ultraviolet radiation from the sun, emit light when they return to their ground state or when they combine due to chemical reactions to create new molecules. During the day, scattered light from the sun masks this activity, so it only becomes visible after dark. New Scientist TV: Earth's atmosphere creates glow-in-the-dark light show

“This visualization shows ocean surface currents around the world during the period from June 2005 through December 2007. The visualization does not include a narration or annotations; the goal was to use ocean flow data to create a simple, visceral experience… read more on nasa.gov ” Know what’s a bummer? Military spending is on the rise while NASA funding has been on a steady decline since 1992 . A big thanks is due to Erica for sending this in to remind us that they’re still doing great things and our boy Neil for some much needed perspective . Perpetual Ocean

Q&BA: The Science of Science Fiction
It's ironic to start a video saying that I shouldn't be pessimistic about the prospect of nuclear war and then following it with footage of Ronald Reagan. It's bizarre to try to inspire me with quotes from notable scientists and then showing me a quote from a man who continually cut funding from education. It's ridiculous to show me a bunch of hype about individuals pushing humanity forward and then touting the accomplishments of corporations. Why is Reagan in this video? Maybe I'm supposed to think the corporate profits made by Honda, Amazon, and Google will "trickle down" to me and improve my quality of life. Or maybe I don't want to remember an era of crushing poverty, cutbacks in schools, "ketchup as a vegetable," continual war, and the recurring fear of global thermonuclear obliteration. If this video doesn't make your heart swell, there's a decent chance you don't have a heart

Video: Massive Blasts of Plasma Swirl on Sun’s Surface | Wired Science A new video from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory shows huge blasts of plasma, called solar prominences , curling around the sun’s tumultuous magnetic field. The remarkable activity was captured Nov. 14 to 15 using a wavelength of extreme ultraviolet light. For legal reasons it should be noted that only NASA is allowed to look directly at the sun
