The Beginning of the Universe, for Beginners

How did the universe begin — and how is it expanding? CERN physicist Tom Whyntie shows how cosmologists and particle physicists explore these questions by replicating the heat, energy, and activity of the first few seconds of our universe, from right after the Big Bang.

CSA Presents: The Hadfield Shake - Exercise on the ISS

To maintain their bone and muscle mass, astronauts need to work out two hours every day. CSA Astronaut and ISS Commander Chris Hadfield shares his workout routine with us, from cardio on the T2 treadmill, to muscle and bone mass maintenance on the ARED (Advanced Resistive Exercise Device).

Chris Hadfield and some incredibly floating Canadian space food [HD 3D]

In this Let’s Talk Science event with students from Airdrie, Alberta, Chris Hadfield describes how a person’s sense of taste changes in weightlessness. He then shares a collection of Canadian food brought to the Station on board SpaceX’s Dragon. Maple syrup in a tube, anyone?

Space Glider - FPV to Space and Back!

This is my attempt to send a radio controlled airplane to the edge of space using a weather ballon, and then via a live video feed pilot it back down again.

Raining Loops on the Sun

On July 19, 2012, an eruption occurred on the sun that produced a moderately powerful solar flare and a dazzling magnetic display known as coronal rain.

Hot plasma in the corona cooled and condensed along strong magnetic fields in the region. Magnetic fields, are invisible, but the charged plasma is forced to move along the lines, showing up brightly in the extreme ultraviolet wavelength of 304 Angstroms, and outlining the fields as it slowly falls back to the solar surface.
