Science is cool. Seriously. It’s cool. We don’t care if your high-school science teacher was 60 with no hair and smelled of lost dreams. Maybe old Mr. [insert name here] wasn’t so cool, but the subject he was teaching? Badass.
Science is the thing that explains why the video of a basketball flying through the air is legit, why a red hot nickel ball can become the most interesting thing in the world, and why a very, very small amount of water balloons are able to stop a gunshot.
And what’s more? Science is able to explain how in the video below, your mind can be tricked into seeing a black and white image in full colour, having never seen the image in full colour before.
No, it’s not black magic. No it’s not witchcraft, and no, Hogwarts or Rivendell still don’t exist. No matter how much you want them to.
