Killer Queen Brass Cover

Killer Queen Brass Cover

When Queen created the track Killer Queen back in 1974, they probably never envisioned it being performed by a brass quintet. But here we are, nearly 50 years later, and the operatic rock classic sounds fantastic played on trumpet, solo horn, flugelhorn, soprano trumpet, and trumpet by the talented Seb Skelly.

Forging a Trident

Forging a Trident

We’ve seen many different tools and weapons crafted by blacksmiths, but we’re guessing they don’t often get requests to make a trident. Rigoni Ironworks walks us through the satisfying process of forging, hammering, and shaping a steel rod into the kind of three-pronged implement that Aquaman or Neptune might wield.

Honeycomb Macro Zoom

Honeycomb Macro Zoom

Macrofying takes us on a deep dive inside of a single cell in a honeycomb to see what bees see… and even what they can’t as they work their macro zoom magic all the way down to the microscopic level. We’re pretty sure those are individual sugar crystals there at the end.

Planetary Escape Velocities

Planetary Escape Velocities

Now that we know how slowly objects fall on various planets, learn how fast you’d need to be moving to escape those same planets in a rocket. Dr. James O’Donoghue’s animated infographic might seem counterintuitive at first, but you can escape planets with larger masses faster because your velocity would be higher.

Machining a Miniature Vise

We can’t think of a practical use for a vise you can fit between your fingertips, but that doesn’t make this tiny vise any less impressive.

It’s basically the world’s slowest and muddiest ski lift.
