This daring individual has discovered what could possibly be the most secure way to erase data on Compact Discs...using a step-up transformer and creating a 240,000-Volt pd. That's right, while the CD rotates in the middle, sparks arc through the metal in the disc, literally evaporating the reflecting aluminum layer, and ripping it all. As you can see, the CD is rendered transparent and unreadable. Continue reading for another video, but this time of someone destroying a CD by spinning it at 30,000RPMs.
The amazing XP1K3 video takes place in an post apocalyptic industrial wasteland and features the 2016 Polaris RZR XP Turbo, which features a tuned engine bored up to 1132ccs by Redline Racing and K&T Performance to produce 200-horsepower. The talented driver is none other than RJ Anderson, one of the best SxS racers on the planet. Everything was shot in Youngstown, Ohio to get the "post apocalyptic dystopian decay of abandoned steel mills, old factories, and train yards as the backdrop to showcase RJ Anderson's skillful car control and death defying stunts."

NASA has just released new images of Jupiter captured by the Hubble's Wide Field Planetary Camera 3, and they show a "rare wave" near the equator as well as a "filament-like feature" inside the Great Red Spot. The scientists used these ultra high-definition images to create a 4K video of the planet's rotation. Continue reading for another video and more information.
Most hypercars, forgo high-tech luxuries such as Apple CarPlay, a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, and memory foam seats, for carbon fiber, etc., but not the Koenigsegg Regera. This vehicle combines a twin-turbocharged, 5.0L V8 with three electric motors, to deliver a combined output of 1,800hp and 1,475 lb-ft of torque. The result is a 0-60 time of 2.5-seconds, a top speed of 255 mph, and the ability to hit 248 mph in under 20-seconds. Continue reading for two more videos and information.
An aircraft carrier is essentially a warship that serves as a seagoing airbase, equipped with a full-length flight deck and facilities for carrying, arming, deploying, and recovering aircraft. They have evolved from converted cruisers to nuclear-powered warships that carry numerous fighter planes, strike aircraft, helicopters, and other types of aircraft. Sometimes, these aircraft have to make night landings, and these videos will show you exactly how crazy the process is. Continue reading for two more videos of the F/18 Hornet making night landings on a carrier.
The MH-53E Sea Dragon is the largest and heaviest helicopter in the United States military, it fills the United States Navy's need for long range minesweeping or Airborne Mine Countermeasures (AMCM) missions, and perform heavy-lift duties. The helicopter has a cruise speed of 173 mph (278 km/h) and a range of 621 miles (1,000 km). This awesome video shows the massive helicopter performing a quick stop, or in other words, hitting the brakes and executing a maximum deceleration maneuver. Continue reading for two more videos of the MH-53E.
This $70-million, Mach 1.8 capable SAAB JAS-39 fighter jet managed to safely land on the Finnish country road in Hosio, as part of a military exercise called "Baana 2015" between the Swedish and the Finnish air forces at the Rovaniemi Air Base. For those who don't know, the Saab JAS-39 Gripen was designed during the Cold War, and meant to be a quick response weapon in case of Soviet invasion, so it needed to take off from snow-covered 800 meters (2,600 ft) long airstrips. Continue reading for a video of an F-18 Hornet taking off from a Finnish road.
A UFO researcher has spotted what may be an extraterrestrial spaceship among thousands of photographs taken by astronauts on the Apollo missions. The image in question show three lights in the corner of one shot of a lunar landscape. Scott C Waring says it could possibly be a top secret 'TR3B' craft that the US military could have been testing at the time. "All evidence points to this being 100 per cent real guys. No doubts here. I just don't see why NASA doesn't just cave in from the massive amount of evidence the public is posting," adds Waring. Continue reading for another video that one Apollo 17 astronaut spotted while on the lunar surface.
A sinkhole that opened on Queensland's Sunshine Coast last week swallowed a car, caravan and camping trailer is estimated to be 200 meters long, 50-meters wide, and up to 9-meters deep. Theories about what might have caused the sinkhole to develop have been circulating, with some people speculating the recent earthquake activity in the area could be responsible, while others suggest the sand mining that took place around Inskip Point in the mid-20th Century could also be playing a role. The video above shows what divers found at the bottom of this sinkhole. Continue reading for an aerial video.
Ever wonder why tanks have absolutely no windows? This video, produced by Aleksandr Kotlovoy, a Russian TV presenter, shows why. The team conducted an experiment to see whether 45-layers of bulletproof glass could stop a hit from an RPG-7, a Russian shoulder-fired anti-armor rocket grenade launcher. Just as you probably guessed, the rocket was more than capable of penetrating the multi-layered glass, even smashed through a second thick panel of glass a couple of meters in front of it. Click here to view the first image in this week's geek life gallery. Continue reading for a viral video of the Forth Worth dog train.
