Video: Drop a couple of M&M's in a petri dish filled with water, point a Sony A7R M2 camera at the experiment capturing a 4K timelapse, and what you get is some remarkably beautiful footage of the colourful candy coating melting away. Without the "M" stamped on each candy, you would almost assume this was footage from by a telescope peering deep into space.
Video: Slugs should be so much cooler to watch. They have antennae that wriggle around and their method of forward motion is weird. But they are just so damn slow. You feel the slug's pain and respect its patience but you don't really want to look very long. Whether it's moving at 20x or 40x, timelapse is truly the way to watch a slug do its thing.
Video: The New York Public Library's Rose Main Reading Room is one of the most majestic spaces in the city. Unfortunately it's been closed for repairs for two years after an ornamental plaster rosette fell from the ceiling. But after fixing that, reinforcing the other 900 rosettes with steel cables and restoring the ceiling, the beautiful 24m by 90m room, with 16m-tall ceilings, finally re-opened to the public. The finishing touch in getting the reading room ready was filling the empty shelves back up with books. You can watch them do it in this time lapse.
It almost defies belief what modern science is capable of. Take this facial reconstruction of Meritamen, a mummified Egyptian woman who may have lived anywhere from 2000-3500 years ago. The reconstruction was conducted by scientists and researchers from Monash University, the University of Melbourne, the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine and many others.
Video: Watching flowers bloom in a timelapse is always fun because they sprout up in this graceful, almost balletic way. Artist Yoshiyuki Katayama somehow managed to add bugs crawling to that dance of flowers which makes it even more lovely to see because it's like watching life happen at two different speeds all at the same time.
Video: There are lots of professional sports venues that can be transformed to accommodate basketball and hockey, or baseball and football. But this timelapse video showing a temporary Olympic-sized, above-ground swimming pool being installed in a stadium in Omaha will make you angry at the six-foot inflatable kiddie pool your parents bought you as a kid.
Video: Check out this a microburst near Phoenix, AZ, sas hot from Phoenix Sky Harbour international airport. According to Bryan Snider, the photographer who captured this terrorstorm sweeping across the rapidly-darkening Arizona sky, there was flash flooding in the area. Oh yeah, and lightning, high winds, and hail.
Video: If you didn't grow up in the American Midwest, you've probably never truly experienced the fury of a tornado-spewing summer thunderstorm. Storm chaser and wedding photographer Mike Olbinski edited 60,000 frames worth of timelapse sequences into this six-minute montage called Vorticity that will leave you with a new respect for Mother Nature.
There's nothing that makes you feel smaller than an expanse of nothing but sand and sky. The White Sands National Monument in New Mexico is the largest gypsum dune field in the world. While this much normal sand isn't a rarity, gypsum's solubility in water means that it doesn't typically stick around for long.
