GoPro: Pole Vaulting

As a pole vaulter in high school, I think this video is pretty cool. You can fly alongside Allison Stokke as she takes you through her pole vault routine and hear why she agrees with the notion that pole vaulters are indeed “a little crazy.” It’s a great use of GoPro cameras and demonstrates the creative ways people are making videos these days.

Solar Explosions And Eruptions

Today marks five years in space for NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, which provides incredibly detailed images of the whole sun 24 hours a day. Capturing an image more than once per second, SDO has provided an unprecedentedly clear picture of how massive explosions on the sun grow and erupt.

The video contains over 200 million images! Pretty cool stuff.
