The Royal Institution at Christmas

The Royal Institution have a fantastic video resource: the RI Channel.

It features a range of videos – from the archived Christmas Lectures, to simple demos, to their own favourites harvested from across the internet.

I picked my top three below – but the channel has loads more!

1. How Wings Work. A non-magical explanation!

2. Prince Rupert’s Drops. Truly astounding! (Warning: its preceded by adverts, but it’s worth it)

3. A Year in the LIfe of Earth’s CO2. A transfixingly beautiful supercomputer simulation. It almost made me cry.

Anyway – what are you still doing here? Off you go!
