This is the most beautiful post-apocalyptic vision of Earth ever

Post-apocalyptic and beautiful are words that I’ve never put in a sentence together until I saw this short film. It takes the exuberant beauty of the ancient temples of Myanmar and incorporates stunning futuristic spaceships to them. That combination creates such gorgeous landscapes that I wish they existed for real. »10/28/15 5:45pm10/28/15 5:45pm


Time lapse creates a beautiful new world by blending a scene at different times of the day

The same place can look different from day to night. The same scene can give off a completely different vibe if there’s stars above or if the sun is behind. This time lapse merges all the faces of a place together. Julian Tryba, the filmmaker behind this video, filmed multiple time lapses of the same setting at… »10/06/15 4:46pm10/06/15 4:46pm

Totally spectacular flyover through the Veil Nebula

The Hubble Space Telescope took a new image of the Veil Nebula, a supernova remnant from a star that exploded 8,000 years ago, and made this truly spectacular flyover visualization of the beautiful ripple in space that you can see below. In the 3D visualization, red is sulfur, green is hydrogen and blue is oxygen. »9/24/15 12:41pm9/24/15 12:41pm

Watching Patagonia's sky fill up with clouds is so beautifully ominous

This whole timelapse video, Patagonia 8K by Timestorm Films, is totally worth watching in its entirety just to see the landscapes of southern Chile and Argentina but I especially enjoy the clip right above where the scattered clouds dance and merge together to form a dense layer that completely blocks out the sky. You… »8/04/15 3:32am8/04/15 3:32am

Seeing waves crash from underneath the ocean is so hypnotizing

Everything about waves crashing—it is water smacking itself—is violent. But that’s because we see it from the surface. Underneath, seeing waves crest and fall is a hypnotizing, almost peaceful phenomenon. The way the sunlight hits the giant water prisim and the way the waves roll on top of you and gently ripples the… »6/25/15 5:34am6/25/15 5:34am

Riding a motorcycle on mirrored salt flats looks like flying in the sky

Here’s an awesome video from Speed Society that shows a motorcycle riding across the world’s largest salt flat, the Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia. The ground basically mirrors the sky which makes it look like the motorcycle is just gunning it through the clouds. Not a bad way to spend a day. »6/05/15 3:00am6/05/15 3:00am

The most amazing Hubble Space Telescope fly-through yet defies belief

If space traveling the universe had a scenic route, this would be it. It’s a 3D fly-through of the nebula Gum 29 with the stunning star cluster Westerlund 2 in the middle and it’s absolutely gorgeous. The image was taken by the Hubble and shown off for its 25th anniversary. It’s the stuff of dreams. »4/23/15 9:30pm4/23/15 9:30pm

Gorgeous underwater sand dunes (or how Earth never ceases to amaze me)

The underwater world is a strange and haunting one. This NASA Earth Observatory photograph captures the ethereal beauty of underwater sand dunes in the Bahamas. Tides and ocean currents shape the underwater sand much like wind on land, but the result is just different enough to be otherworldly. »1/18/14 10:44am1/18/14 10:44am
