If you like GIFs, you’ll like this. If you like science, you’ll LOVE this. Over at BuzzFeed, they have a collection of “32 mesmerising GIFs that will make you fall in love with science“, and they’re not wrong!
I’ve covered a few of the shown GIFs before, including: the explosive polymerisation reaction between p-nitroaniline and concentrated sulphuric acid; snow crystals; levitating superconductors; slinky drop physics; and 3D nebulae. However, my new favourite one is the GIF shown above. It’s magnetic putty swallowing a metal cube whole! How awesome is that!? And rather freaky too, but awesome!
Which is your favourite GIF from the list? Onwards!
