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.

You’ve never seen sound visualizations like this before. Evan Grant creates beautiful illustrations of what we hear by capturing the vibrations from sound waves in mediums like sand or water. This process — called cymatics — makes sound look so wonderfully alien.
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.
