/sci/ - Science & Math


Thread archived.
You cannot reply anymore.



Are there any actual good /sci/ related YouTubers?

vsauce

>>11855754
No.
>>
Sure, but they won't be pop sci. Likely it's some Indian dude solving electro-static problems using Maxwell's equations. It's not as interesting up front but if you truly appreciate the math and have a curiosity for how things actually work, not omg quantum mechanics, it's very enjoyable.

His jokes are

Yes but they are hard to find

Thunderf00t and his second channel "voice of thunder"

>is a real fucking scientist who gets published in nature. Used to shitpost and troll creationists a lot but moved that content over to his secondary channel. He does thinks w/ alkaline earth metals and solvating electrons in ammonia. Also

Issac Arthur. Although he's more futurism. Good though. His voice is entertaining alone.

Applied science videos are pretty fucking good.

He was never relevant tbqh.

amusing content for ex-christians in the early recovery phase, but this was always an irrelevant niche

it's amazing how irrelevant this whole religion vs atheism debate is today. My hope is that all this political correctness we have today will be perceived as pure cringe in ~20-30 years.

It will be viewed as we view religion in the middle ages a few centries from now, some people will still buy into the basic idea, but everyone agrees it was taken too far.

/sci/ in a nutshell
>>
What I generally watch that I haven't seen mentioned here yet

Two Minute Papers - Some slavic guy going over recent machine learning/neural network papers with good examples in each

Tech Ingredients - Imagine your 10th grade science teacher covering why stuff explodes or how Air Conditioning works in the driest voice possible but still making it interesting

Machine Thinking - more history of engineering, with some 'look at me lathe this shit', but still fun

Anton Petrov too, lots of astronomy videos and news on publications

>>11862952
some cool stuff sometimes but mostly normie-tier
>>
>>11862935
he sucks and his videos are for brainlets lol, watch real lectures or read a textbook fucking faggot
>>
>>11857228
I'm sure your comedy is truly high brow
>>
SmarterEveryDay is the only one I watch. It's sort of Mythbustery with slowmo shots and cool shit but, like old school Mythbusters, he also whips out equations and such to explain things and covers some genuinely complex phenomenon. I think the guy's a rocket engineer or something and worked on some space projects and military stuff. It's not exactly an Indian dude writing math on a blackboard but it's not just "woah look at the gun go boom". There's some of that but after that it usually goes one or two layers deeper.

Considering he has some millions of subscribers I'm guessing a lot of you know about him and considering I never see him mentioned he's probably too entry level or main stream. Personally I think he's much better than the reactionary type WOOAH dude people like Mark Rober at least. While Rober is clearly a smart dude he rarely seems to go to the backgrounds of how things work and just shows the result and the "cool" parts instead of the riggings and the build up which are actually cool.
>>
>>11863178
It's because people aren't interested in watching educational content, they just want to be entertained by some guy with engineering skills for 10 minutes.
There is nothing wrong with that but if you really want to learn something you have to watch an actual course.

NileRed and NurdRage are quite well known. Less well known but just as good (even better if you like memelording) is Explosions&Fire/Extractions&Ire.
Dude loves his energetics but still makes proper sciency videos full of memes. I originally got thrown off by the name Explosions&Fire thinking it was going to be too low-brow for me but he's a legit PhD (candidate) and goes through the full synthesis and history of the energetics he makes. Complete with Aussie bants.
Madlad is even listed as an 'unreliable fringe source' on the wiki page for the meme explosive azidoazide azide.

>>11863151
I'm not claiming to have quality joke videos though
>>
>>11862952
used to be a decent chanel about physics, but became shitty pop-sci clickbait.

>>11862973
Eh I find some of his videos helpful for intuition but in my experience most people watch think they're some kind of hyper-intellect so fair
>>
>>11865274
He was always shit he is definitionally pop sci
>>
In this world where things get successful based on independent creators getting views organically (compared to network TV shows or pop music etc.), the most mainstream things are actually probably some of the best things. Vsauce, 3Blue1Brown, Veritasium

YouTube obviously is piled to the brim with pure shit, but it's also led to some really cool stuff

You mean things that the lowest common denominator enjoys, right?
Popular things are popular because they appeal to the majority, which isn't always (rarely, in fact) a good thing.
>>
>>11855838
he makes interesting videos and explains topics well, but the production is garbage and cringy as fuck. He also takes 30 minutes to explain something that could be done in 5
