Film maker/storm chaser Mike Olbinksi has produced an epic movie looking at the sky.
From the Vimeo description:
“The work on this film began on March 28th and ended June 29th. There were 27 total days of actual chasing and many more for traveling. I drove across 10 states and put over 28,000 new miles on the ol’ 4Runner. I snapped over 90,000 time-lapse frames. I saw the most incredible mammatus displays, the best nighttime lightning and structure I’ve ever seen, a tornado birth caught on time-lapse and a display of undulatus asperatus that blew my mind. Wall clouds, massive cores, supercell structures, shelf clouds…it ended up being an amazing season and I’m so incredibly proud of the footage in this film. It wasn’t the best year in storm chasing history…but I got to chase storms and share it with you guys. All worth it.”
Check it out, you won’t be disappointed – and the soundtrack is equally as epic and a great fit.
Ever wonder what a night flight looks like from Switzerland to Brazil? Here you go:
Here is an 11 minute video which will either leave you with a headache or keep you thinking all week about it. Straight out of the Matrix, this video noodles through the various folds and bends in moving from the 3rd dimension we live to the possible scenarios strewn out across time and multiple possibilities of you. You’ll be lost but it’s cool nonetheless and a creative piece of thinking.
I am always amazed at images from space. I particularly like galaxies and trying to grasp the sheer insanity of the numbers involved in virtually every aspect of describing pretty much anything that has to do with space. You can get a great look into some incredible images from the Spitzer Space Telescope. Click on some of the podcasts for something you don’t see everyday.
