We’re happy you’re here, because we have devised a revolutionary new way to experience science, and we want you to experience it! Our educational lava lamp swirls trippy music videos full of stunning, rare science footage. We’re inspired by the slow TV movement, which advocates using media to relax and unwind. Wonder Science is a pleasant, easy way to see amazing science. This is a space where scientists can circulate their own science videos and lab footage. If that’s potentially you, take a look at the submission link below! Here at Wonder Science, we love collaborating with musicians to create a synthesis of stunning visuals and chill synth music. With a simple formula for trippy music videos, Wonder Science aims to delight even those who don’t think they’re interested in science. But if you’re here, you probably know you’re interested in science. We want to offer you something you haven’t seen before. Wonder Science collects microscopic science videos from artists and scientists around the world. Our content is perfect for classroom use — providing a meaningful visual aid for a variety of topics. Wonder Science works equally well as video wallpaper for parties, or as a slow TV sleep aid. Do not deprive your toddlers and pets of Wonder Science, either. We believe that learning about the world and admiring its beauty go hand in hand. Feeling wonder can change your life forever. Download the free Wonder Science app which makes it a cinch to enjoy rare science videos, slow TV, and trippy music videos on your iPhone, iPad, browser, and TV.

Ants and humans are the only species on Earth that wage organized war.
Ant colonies can number in the dozens of individuals to over three hundred million ants.
The movies "Ant-Man" and "A Bug's Life" got it wrong using male ant protagonists. Real male ants do no work and are fed by their sisters. All soldier, worker, forager, nurse, and queen ants are female.
All ants in a colony are siblings, offspring of the queen ant.
Ant siblings share 75% of their genetic material in common, so helping others is almost as good as helping oneself.
“Ants are more like the parts of an animal than entities on their own. They are mobile cells, circulating through a dense connective tissue of other ants in a matrix of twigs. The circuits are so intimately interwoven that the anthill meets all the essential criteria of an organism."
