YouTuber westh2o was diving underwater with friends in Moorea, French Polynesia when they began to hear the whale song of a humpback whale. Westh2o writes:

The recording does not do justice to the actual sound. Seriously some of those sounds vibrated my chest. I didn’t realize whales had such a wide frequency of sound. Some were mid to hi frequency and some were very low.

As they swam into the depths, straining their eyes to find the sound’s source in the cloudiness of the water, the vocalizations became louder, and then something huge began to emerge. Here’s a glimpse: 

Watch the video to get a reeeally good look. And then watch more whale encounters here, here, and here

A New Perspective of the Day: Wringing Out Water from a Washcloth in Space

Tenth graders Kendra and Meredith from Fall River, Nova Scotia recently took a top prize the Canadian Space Agency’s Science Challenge with a washcloth-wringing experiment. As part of their prize, Col. Chris Hadfield, currently living in the International Space Station, made a video showing exactly what happens when a person tries to wring out a washcloth in zero gravity.

this is fucking with my brain on such a huge level

I cannot even handle everything in this video

HOLY COW SPACE IS SO COOL MARY YOU MUST WATCH THIS IMMEDIATELY

“I mean, I’m starting to realize that I’m just better at drinking than everybody else.”

TOGETHER AT LAST
“I like to see people reunited, I like to see people run to each other, I like the kissing and the crying, I like the impatience, the stories that the mouth can’t tell fast enough, the ears that aren’t big enough, the eyes that can’t take in all of the change, I like the hugging, the bringing together, the end of missing someone.”

This is maybe one of the greatest wild life phenomenon on the planet ever captured on lens!

In the sea of Cortez, Baja California, Mexico, a massive congregation of Munkiana Devil Rays, relative of manta rays, was captured by a German photographer Florian Schulz, displaying unusual event which he dubbed as the Flight of the Rays.

But as this wonderful perspective shows, for all the individuals leaping out that are visible at sea level, there are many more below the surface. The jaw-dropping image below shows only a quarter of the whole scene.

No one knows why the rays gather like this, whether to mate, herd prey or migrate or just for the sheer joy of being together

this is beautiful

this is terrifying

so cool!!
