Chemistry in Ultra HD shows science like you've never seen it | Michael Franco | CNET | Electrons in atoms | Scoop.it

Chemistry was always the most visually appealing of the sciences I studied in school. There were all those amazing colors, plus smoke, bubbles and best of all, fire!

Turns out, I'm not the only one who found chemistry to be attractive. A collaboration between the Institute of Advanced Technology at the University of Science and Technology of China and Tsinghua University Press has led to the formation of BeautifulChemistry.net, a site whose goal is "to bring the beauty of chemistry to the general public through digital media and technology."

To start on the path, the creators "used a 4K UltraHD camera and special lenses to capture chemical reactions in astonishing detail without the distraction of beakers and test tubes." Those reactions are compiled in the following video and are broken into six different categories. You might not understand exactly what the chemical symbols mean in each video, but it helps to get Beautiful Chemistry's take on each category, which we've included below.

Or, you can just enjoy the stunning footage as a sheer work of art without knowing anything at all about the science, which is what I did -- the first time I watched.

Teaching the spectra of visible light can be an engaging classroom activity. But, it’s always been challenging to find ways to go beyond simple passive demonstrations.

Why is the Sky Blue?
eNCA (blog)
Energy from the sun is known as radiation and falls into the visible light section of the electromagnetic spectrum. Visible light travels in waves that are too small and travel too quickly for us to see.
