I made this a few years ago and it’s been sitting in my drafts ever since.

It’s particularly gorgeous video from WRC Sweden; I believe it was 2011.

I present it as evidence that rally (particularly WRC) is the most impressive motorsport on the planet. Here we see a car speeding and drifting at 100+km/h on snow and ice through lush forests… and Jari-Matti Latvala looks ridiculously calm, almost bored, in the drivers seat.

An interesting model of our solar system’s path as it travels through space in the Milky Way.
Certainly a departure from usual models that show the Sun as a static object, which it certainly isn’t

This is badass.

This is perfect. I wish I knew where I could find the original video. It looks like it could be a NOVA animation, as it is very high quality.
Thinking of the solar system in this way is very satisfying for me. I can’t really explain it, but staring at this just makes me feel calm. We’re all just along for the ride.
