Humans do not treat the Earth kindly, and now we have even more evidence. Google just updated the Google Earth Engine to include four years of additional imagery, petabytes of new data and generally a much clearer view of any location on Earth from 1984 to 2016. The best part: You can watch any area on Earth in a time lapse video.

There's a hard speed limit for helicopters. Like, a speed that helicopters physically can't exceed. Above about 400km/h, helicopter blades literally run out of lift and the bird falls out of the sky. It's due to a phenomenon called dissymmetry of lift, and this video explains exactly how it works.

For the past few years, Canadian mashup artist Daniel Kim's Pop Danthology has been like a Cliff's Notes for the absolute best pop music tracks of the last 12 months. We've shared them before — here's 2014, here's 2015 — but we won't be sharing this year's mashup. Why?

A parody trailer has taken Doc and Marty out of the "wild west" of barn dances and manure fights into the sex-fuelled Pleasure Dome that is Westworld. However, "Back to the Westworld" does more than just promise Marty the company of gold-coated sexbots: It totally makes Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen a host.

Video: Using a magnifying glass to scorch anything unfortunate enough to cross your path on a sunny afternoon is a popular past time among kids. But when you were younger you'd never dream of focusing that solar death ray on your beloved LEGO toys. Nor would you today, since the YouTube channel Let's Melt This has done it for you.

YouTube is the single most often used source of digital content in Australian classrooms, according to a report from Queensland University of Technology.

Rather than shunning the practice, researchers say schools should be more flexible with the use of YouTube and other social media platforms to embrace new trends in "edutainment", allowing teachers to maximise the value of "teachable" and "in the moment" content.

Yesterday, we wrote about a YouTube video called "Hi Walter! I got a new gf today!" It had recently gone viral, and a theory emerged that it may have been connected to the 2009 disappearance of Kayla Berg, a Wisconsin teenager. Police announced that they were investigating the video on Monday, but yesterday, the department declared that the whole thing was just a twisted misunderstanding.

In October 2009, a user named Hi Walter! Its me Patrick! uploaded a video to YouTube called "Hi Walter! I got a new gf today!" In it, a man with glasses faces the camera and talks about meeting a girl at a shopping centre. In the video's last few seconds, the man promises to introduce the girl. The shot then switches, and he appears in a dark room, where he opens a door to reveal a young woman — bound and screaming on the floor.

Last month, a grown man in fluffy Pikachu jammies performed a manic routine from Hell on Russian state-controlled Channel 1, complete with Pokébabes and Pokéhunks dancing with giant prop iPhones, half-twerking and bouncing about on blow-up Pokéballs.

YouTube series Carmilla — based on the 19th century lesbian vampire tale, but updated to a modern-day university setting — will get its own feature after it wraps up its third and final season. The jump to movie is based in no small part on the show's incredibly devoted fan base, which has boosted it to over 50 million views.
