    NPR / RadioLab correspondent Robert Krulwich rockets from the edge of the Milky Way to the center of the Orion Nebula, to get a close look at a new star with planets beginning to form around it. Animator Brian Edgerton and I nested together several ultra-high-resolution images from the Hubble Space Telescope to create the "flying" effect. Robert has more cool stuff to go with the story (supernova pics, avalanches on Mars, etc) here: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=125322033

        I recently produced a science web-doc for Nature.com about erasing traumatic memories in humans. The experiment involved zapping subjects with an electric shock to "recreate fear in the lab." Of course, I had to try it for myself. Watch the doc here: http://www.nature.com/nature/videoarchive/memory/index.html

            The New York Times Magazine invited four "digerati" types to pick out their favorite viral media moments for their annual "Screens" issue. I used screencasting to combine webcam "diary" footage of each speaker with animated examples of the stuff they were talking about, all onscreen in the Mac OS X Desktop.

                    In this episode of a series I created for Popular Science, anonymous clips of lightning strikes are combined with "Pop Up Video"-style text bubbles to explain the science of how lightning strikes happen. Bonus: a lot of cursing. The series concluded in 2009, but you can see all the episodes here: http://www.popsci.com/scitube

                      What are Tags?


                      Tags are keywords that describe videos. For example, a video of your Hawaiian vacation might be tagged with "Hawaii," "beach," "surfing," and "sunburn."
