The myth of Icarus and Daedalus – Amy Adkins

In mythological ancient Greece, soaring above Crete on wings made from wax and feathers, Icarus, the son of Daedalus, defied the laws of both man and nature. Ignoring the warnings of his father, he rose higher and higher. To witnesses on the ground, he looked like a god, and as he peered down from above, […]

The Hunt for the Highest Melting Point

If you follow our sister channel SciShow Space, you might remember something that we pointed out recently: Even the coolest places on the Sun’s surface are hot enough to melt every compound that humans have ever found, created, or even predicted. And it turns out that there’s a whole field of scientific research devoted to […]

Melting Ice Caps: One Scientist’s Point of View

We’ve lost more than half the sea ice that used to be around in the 80s. We’re continuing over this last decade this ever-increasing loss of ice during the summer, but also this startling thinning that’s been going on as well. There’s so much ice loss that the Arctic is in a new state. We’re […]

Energy & Electricity in Science : How Does Solar Energy Work?

Hi, I’m Steve Jones, and I’m going to explain how solar energy works. Now, solar means sun, so we know that the energy is coming from the sun, and we might think it comes as heat or whatever. In fact, we get all kinds of energy from the sun, but it is all radiation. Remember, […]

How We Turn Solar Energy Into Electricity

I have a very distinct memory of tv telling me, “every hour the sun beams enough solar energy to power our planet for a year.” Solar power, however, has yet to deliver on this promise from my children’s television. Why is it so hard???? The sun shines on us every day, it comes down here […]

This ‘two-faced’ membrane can create electricity—from nothing but salty water

Nature loves balance. Ever sprinkle salt on a piece of eggplant? Over time, the eggplant starts to sweat out water. This happens because there is a different ratio of salt to water on the surface versus inside the eggplant, so water seeps out onto the surface to try and equalize how salty the water is […]
