For those with a short attention span, General Electric recently sponsored a week long celebration of science on Vine, Twitter’s new service that allows users to create and post six second videos. As you’d expect from the length, there’s not much space to do much explaining, so while the visuals are fun (and in some cases scientifically incorrect), you’re likely not going to learn a whole lot. Luckily for us, Joe Hansen from PBS took the time to annotate the whole video, so if you want an explanation of what you’re seeing, you can find it here.
