Let's talk about the universe
The concept of the Big Bang and what happened "before" it continues to blow my mind. I hope that I get to see science advance to a point where we understand what happened prior to this event.
Watch as a single-celled organism dies
I must not understand what "single-celled" means as it looks like there are multiple types of cells here. There are the little feelers, an outside membrane, and whatever is inside. Even still, it's amazing to see something like this up close and see what happens when it breaks apart.

Clicked for the picture of Rad, stayed for the existential horror of the death of a single celled organism.
