  1. How The Beer Aisle Explains Biodiversity [Video]

    MinuteEarth tells us how the supermarket is like a forest, with towering oaks of Budweiser and persistent shrubbery of microbrews.

    The beer aisle at your local supermarket may have more in common with a forest than you think. Both are dominated by huge examples of what they have to offer -- oaks in the forest, Budweiser in the refrigerated section -- but are also peppered with smaller competitors who have found a way to carve out a niche that works for them. Check out the latest video from the deep thinkers at MinuteEarth to learn what beer markets and capitalism can teach us about biodiversity and ecology. You may even begin to understand the missing link between ferns and a good locally sourced lager, though we can't guarantee it.

    Okay, so, don't freak out or anything, but Earth's atmosphere is escaping. Ridiculously slowly, I should say, and there's no concern that it'll happen at any point soon. We're talking billions of years before it's gone.

  4. Hello, World: Folks Behind MinutePhysics Launch MinuteEarth [Video]

    You might recall that we here at Geekosystem enjoy the videos made by the good people at MinutePhysics. We certainly post them often enough. They're both amusing and informative, and that's pretty much the best thing the Internet at large can produce. Now we'll have even more amusing and informative videos to post! See, they've just launched MinuteEarth, which promises to cover science and stories about our planet. Their first video talks about the planet in a general sense, and how we've spread across it, but future episodes promise to be even better.
