When the movie Predator released in 1987, audiences were captivated as they watched an unseen, extra-terrestrial interloper stalk and kill a highly trained team of US special forces. Little did we know that during the Vietnam war, the militaries on both sides had been attacked by something just as frightening and just as bizarre; a true to life enemy unknown.

“I’ve got something in my front pocket for you
Why don’t you reach on in my pocket and see what it is
Then grab onto it
It’s just for you
Give a little squeeze and say ‘How do ya do’
There’s something in my front pocket
There’s something in my front pocket
There’s something in my front pocket”

Blood is a pretty remarkable diagnostic tool! It doesn’t just tell you about blood-related diseases, it can reveal information about everything from your brain to your unborn fetus. Hosted by: Michael Aranda

“Since we don’t totally understand how they work yet, the research group thinks those unknown factors might be why their estimate isn’t super-accurate.”

What is quantum mechanics really all about?

Fermilab – Nov 18, 2019 – 10:18
Quantum mechanics is perhaps the most misunderstood of modern physics topics, with many counterintuitive concepts like cats being both alive and dead and with claims that something doesn’t exist until a human looks at it. In this video, Fermilab’s Dr. Don Lincoln boils quantum mechanics down to its essence and demystifies this mystifying theory.

“The wave function is perplexing. The simple and honest fact is that, despite a century of thinking about it, nobody knows what it is.”

And, just like the SciShow folks, uses “hopefully” ingrammatically.
