Inside The Most Precise Atomic Clock in the World

From his basement lab in Boulder, Colorado, physicist Jun Ye and his team have built the world’s most precise atomic clock. The clock is so powerful it can measure otherwise imperceptible changes in the physical world. “Have you ever seen the movie called Interstellar? You’ll see some of that in our lab, it’s not science fiction. You can actually see clocks slow down,” explains Ye…

The Invisible Creatures at the Bottom of the Sea

Less than 2 percent of the ocean floor has been explored by scientists. “Every time we go to the deep sea, we find new species of organisms,” explains geobiologist Victoria Orphan. “These organisms aren’t germs to be feared but actually are making the world tick.” In episode six of The Most Unknown, astrophysicist Rachel Smith and geobiologist Victoria Orphan dive to the bottom of the Pacific at depths of 3,000 feet to probe the unseen microbial communities that feed off methane and invisibly alter our planet’s chemical environment.

Looking Into the Center of the Galaxy

Astrophysicist Rachel Smith is an observer of forming stars. From 20,000 light years away, Smith trawls the frontiers of our galaxy searching through the chemistry of where in the universe Earth-like planets could exist. “You have a puzzle with a million or a billion pieces, and we’ve got one piece,” explains Smith. “I’m interested in the chemistry of what’s going on from where we are to where the center of our galaxy is.” In episode five of The Most Unknown, Smith travels to Hawaii’s W.M. …

What Does a Nuclear Bomb Explosion Feel Like?

The existential threat of nuclear war is no longer a Cold War memory. With nine countries armed with around 15,000 atomic bombs up to 53 times stronger than those dropped in the Second World War, the stakes are arguably higher. Ahead of the International Day against Nuclear Tests on August 29, we met up British atomic veterans who were present at test sites in Australia and the Pacific, to find out what it’s like to experience a nuclear bomb explosion up close. While most people know about the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, fewer are aware that an additional 2,000 atomic bombs were detonated after World War II and tested on hundreds of thousands of young soldiers to prepare them for nuclear war.

This Pyro Makes The Strongest DIY Lasers In The World Out of Old Tech

From a storage unit in rural Illinois, YouTuber Styropyro builds high-powered laser experiments in a makeshift lab for his nearly half a million subscribers. A chemist by training, Drake Anthony started his Styropyro YouTube channel over a decade ago, when he was still a teenager. As YouTube clamps down in recent years on the types of content it allows on its platform, Styropyro claims that DIY, science-focused YouTubers like him are getting unreasonably moderated. Motherboard travelled to rural Illinois to meet up with him at his DIY science lab.
