The present and future of the US Navy’s aircraft force in one GIF
For the first time ever, the U.S. Navy  showed how its manned and unmanned jets can seamlessly work together aboard its aircraft carriers. This video filmed aboard the supercarrier USS Theodore Roosevelt shows a manned F-18 and an unmanned X-47B taking off one right after the other, like any other jets would do.

I see non-Newtonian fluids in there!

Also, there’s sound inside stars—I had to do a problem about sound waves propagating through stellar atmospheres for a class once, and it was just covered two weeks ago in my stellar astrophysics course. Basically, sound is ridiculously cool.

It must be such a satisfying feeling to design one of these and have them work exactly as you’d envisaged.
