    For everyone wondering how video is made: in the past video was made by taking thousands of photos within seconds, then all the images would be places on a giant reel and they'd show you each picture REALLY fast and it would seem like the objects in the pictues were moving. Its kinda like when people make those drawings on flip books, where they take their thumbs and hold up all the pages in a book, then let each page drop off their thumb really fast so it looks like the images are moving, but really its just a whole bunch of single images that are slightly in a different place on each page. It's pretty much just tricking your eye, it happens so fast, your eye can't keep up and it looks like it's all running together

  17. Michael says

    It blows my mind that the light he is showing going into the lens, is light that is either being produced by trillions and trillion of atoms, but also reflecting light from other light sources. Basically everything is light, or a crystal that is reflecting light or both combined. That is some trippy shit.
