A Short Post About Two Seriously Cool Videos

From Mythbusters comes an insane rocket sled/car collision. Be sure to watch the last shot of the car being hit by the rocket at slow motion speed. The link is to an entry at the Bad Astronomy blog.

Next is a beautiful but imagined visualization of how magnetic fields might look and is stunning. Astronomy students will note the comparison of the magnetic fields of both the Sun and the Earth. The blog post notes that the reason why the visualizations are so compelling is elusive but this isn’t some filmstrip from the 1980s.
