This is a thread for random interesting science related stuff.
I'll start off:
This is physics talk I'm watching right now. It's about the fine tuning of the universe. It's not too hard to follow the broad ideas for a layman. Link: Why is there a Macroscopic Universe? (Nima Arkani-Hamed)

This is a cool little video where they hooked some heart cells to some gelatine/gold-ray thingy.
Robotic ray is part animal, part machine

Brian Cocks talks a little bit about heat death. It's very poetic and there's one line in particular that moves me near the end.
Death of the Universe

Some creepy illusion stuff

Synchronized oscillations of a synthetic quorum clock in bacteria.
The related article is behinid a pay wall but there's an article describing the article here.

I wanted to make it more general, i.e. so others can join in too.
