This Is What It Looks Like to Fall Into A Nest Full of Angry Rattlesnakes (GoPro Video)

Despite their fearsome reputation, rattlesnakes are actually pretty social creatures. Females, especially ones that come from the same litter, are known to form communal breeding colonies where they care for and protect each other’s young. So when YouTube user Michael Delaney went snooping into a rattlesnake den with a GoPro camera mounted on a hockey stick, he didn’t receive the warmest of welcomes from the den’s scaly inhabitants, who likely perceived the camera as a threat to their young. Check it out in the video below:

Loving Family Brings Frozen Kitten Back To Life (GoPro Video)

This past Thanksgiving, Branden Bingham and his family went to Bear Lake outside of Salt Lake City, Utah to enjoy some quality family-time and scenery. On their first night, 12 inches of snow covered the town. The following morning, the family went outside to enjoy the winter wonderland when Branden’s oldest son found a kitten buried in the snow. The kitten had been trapped in the snow all night, and was near death when Branden’s son found him. The family

Spellbinding New Footage Captures Rare Giant Squid Like Never Before (Video)

giant squid feat

The incredible footage above was captured on Christmas Eve in Japan’s Toyama Bay, located just northwest of Tokyo. After encountering the spectacular creature near the surface of the water, local diver Akinobu Kimura (the man behind the camera) decided to swim with it for a bit. “My curiosity to get closer and to see the details on every part of its body was greater than my fear,” he told The New York Times. While the squid remained calm and docile for the most part, Kimura

Tokyo PD’s New Drone Squad Shows Off Net-Equipped Drone Catcher (Video)

Earlier this month, police in Tokyo announced the creation of a drone squad to deal with the rise in personal drone use by members of the public. According to the BBC, the unit’s main goal will be to patrol key government buildings, watching for “nuisance drones” involved in suspicious activity. If one is spotted, the operator will be warned by loudspeaker before a net-equipped police drone is used to disable the nuisance drone. Members of the newly-formed squad showed off one of their drone catchers in a

Pelican Learns To Fly And Fish With Help From A Human Friend (GoPro Video)

Early last year, former Nomad Tanzania safari mangers Jeffrey Condon and his wife Kerrie Condon took in a baby pelican that had washed ashore during a storm, alone and distressed. The couple nursed the baby pelican back to health and named him “Bigbird”. Being nearly 100 miles from the nearest flock of pelicans, releasing Bigbird into the wild on his own was not an option. Instead, the couple had no choice but to raise Bigbird and prepare him for the

On his 21st birthday, University of Colorado environmental science student Rafael Pease took a trip to El Colorado, Chile to go snowboarding. With intentions of enjoying some fresh powder after the first storm of the season, Pease took to the mountain with a friend, geared up and ready to go. Soon into their ride, Pease noticed a stranded horse in the distance. To investigate the situation, the riders unstrapped from their equipment and hiked to the abandoned animal to see

Armageddon Practice: Scientists Plan to Knock An Asteroid Off Course By Hitting It With A Probe (Video)

In the 1998 blockbuster film “Armageddon“, NASA scientists have to figure out how to redirect a Texas-sized asteroid after discovering that it is less than a month away from a catastrophic collision with Earth. The plot is not that farfetched. Luckily for us, however, real-life scientists have decided that it’s probably a good idea to prepare for the possibility of an incoming asteroid well ahead of time. Not long ago, NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) put the final touches on a joint

99.99 Percent Air: Boeing Unveils “World’s Lightest Metal” (Video)

lightest metal

Imagine making plane parts out of a material that is 100 times lighter than styrofoam. That’s the future that Boeing is imagining, thanks to recent advances in the development of revolutionary microlattice metals. The microlattice, first created back in 2011, is made up of a series of small, hollow metal tubes which are criss-crossed and interlaced to bolster the overall strength of the lattice. “The trick is to fabricate a lattice of interconnected hollow tubes with a wall thickness 1,000 times

AI: Watch As Two Robots Learn About Their Bodies and Develop Their Own Language (Video)

AI communication

The field of artificial intelligence is doing some incredible things. Whether its learning-equipped software that detects cancer earlier and more accurately, or a hotel staffed almost entirely by robots, AI is becoming more and more common and increasingly more advanced. In a special for BBC2, Oxford professor Marcus du Sautoy took a look at some of the most cutting-edge AI projects taking place around the world. One of his stops was at the headquarters of the ALEAR (Artificial Language Evolution of Autonomous Robots) project. There, he met two “Myon” humanoid robots, which

solar system to scale

Space is big. REALLY big. And our solar system is no exception. If you don’t include Pluto (which was demoted from planet status a few years back), one would have to travel approximately 2.8 billion miles to get from the Sun to the outermost limits of our solar system — the equivalent of traveling all the way around the Earth 112,440 times. Because of its massive size, it’s extremely difficult to show all the features of our solar system together on an accurate scale. Luckily for us, filmmakers Alex Gorosh and
