@Duane: The water battery bit reminds me of the Kurt Vonnegut novel "Cat's Cradle".

Hi Max - I would have posted a comment earlier but after clicking through on the Earth Breathes video i got distracted by all the other great videos. This one on a meteor exploding and the resulting debris ring is breathtaking!

Reminds me of the the Professor Challenger story "When the World Screamed" (1928), by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.  The story hyphotheses that Earth is a large, living creature moving through the Ether, with a soft, sensitive core inside a hard protective shell.

This is a very cool collection.

The water battery bit reminds me of the Kurt Vonnegut novel "Cat's Cradle". In the book, a scientist was experimenting with different crystalline structures for water ice and ended up discovering one that would be frozen at room temperature. Naturally, at some point, a seed of ice-nine gets into the ocean and freezes everything.

It just works. Kudos to whoever did the video editing.

@Janine: I always found that BeeGees' tune rather annoying, but now I love it.

I have a love-hate relationship with the Bee Gees -- they love singing in high-pitched voices ... and I hate it :-)

But for some reason I love the song with thsi video -- weird...

@DrFPGA: Thanx for your video of the Breathing Earth! It's the most 'Though Provoking Image' you have come up with so far...

Thanks Warren ... when I first saw this it really did make me think WOW!

Thanks Max! I always found that BeeGees' tune rather annoying, but now I love it. Was great to see the "old" dance scenes. Some of my favorites on the link you mention in #1.

Max-

Thanx for your video of the Breathing Earth! It's the most 'Though Provoking Image' you have come up with so far, even if not named as such! Make sure you check out other posts from the site. The tornado or hurricane posts in particular are also Thought Provoking...

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
