For my part I reiterate what I said two years ago in the fourth centenary of Cervantes death (there you will find a bunch of links about Cervantes universe):

…always is a good time to grab his works and… devour them, definitely worth it, own a unique and perfect mixture of adventures, humor, history, philosophy and a brilliant analysis of human nature.

2018 Nikon Small World in Motion Competition

Above my favorite (second place):

Laser propagating inside a soap membrane. Technique: Reflected Light Epi-Illumination. Dr. Miguel Bandres – Anatoly Patsyk. Technion – Israel Institute of Technology

I recommend take a look both winning videos and honorable mentions.

Of course the winner is awesome too:

Zebrafish embryo growing its elaborate sensory nervous system (visualized over 16 hours of development). Technique: Selective Plane Illumination Microscopy (SPIM). Dr. Elizabeth Haynes – Jiaye “Henry” He. University of Wisconsin – Madison

Sister Rosetta Tharpe

All this new stuff they call rock ’n’ roll, why, I’ve been playing that for years now… Ninety percent of rock-and-roll artists came out of the church, their foundation is the church.

A hipster queen among hipsters, she was already empowering herself (doubly) even before the very word was created. Love.

A second bunch of data from the European Space Agency’s Gaia satellite has been released today and the archive is live now.

A multitude of discoveries are on the horizon after this much awaited release, which is based on 22 months of charting the sky. The new data includes positions, distance indicators and motions of more than one billion stars, along with high-precision measurements of asteroids within our Solar System and stars beyond our own Milky Way Galaxy.

Some Spanish slang terms explained by Antonio Banderas.

Well, slang is a regional thing, some words he introduces are common in Spain and other countries, but others are more specific from his hometown (Málaga, Andalusia). Funny anyway.

String Theory Explained – What is The True Nature of Reality?

This is probably the cutest video I watched in weeks. You won’t get the answer to the question, but will get a nice explanation of why String Theory is useful in the way to decipher the deepest secrets of nature.
