Are there any actual good /sci/ related YouTubers?
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.
>>11855761kek but nothe answer is thunderf00t
>>11855754John Michael Godier
Andrew Dotson makes based science videos along with quality joke videos.
>>11856265His jokes are >math major autistic about definitions>engineers are stupid dumb dumbs who do applications>physic majors are cool smart guys
Yes but they are hard to findThunderf00t and his second channel "voice of thunder"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7rejik_ZOw>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 TTEhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aoczYXJeMY4&t=305s>does real shit like code in DNA to make him lactose intolerant and makes cameras to see wife.Scott manlyhttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxzC4EngIsMrPmbm6Nxvb-A>"Family-friendly" but still has some of the best videos on rockets without going to lecture-style videos 3Blue1brownhttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYO_jab_esuFRV4b17AJtAw>Again made family-friendly and polished but still a great tool for visualizing things Physics Videos by Eugene Khutoryanskyhttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJ0yBou72Lz9fqeMXh9mkog>uses a program so u can visualize certain topics in physics.

Fuck messed up the links, sorry I'm a lurker.
>>11857829styropyro is a millennial.
>>11855789> Indian dudeew
only one that matters.
>>11855754Issac Arthur. Although he's more futurism. Good though. His voice is entertaining alone.
>>11855838How old are you? He became irrelevant like 8 years ago.
Applied science videos are pretty fucking good.
>>11858265For a long time I thought he was Cajun.>>11858296Yes that's true.
>>11858268He was never relevant tbqh.>me mocking the most retarded christians I can find on the internet video 38,437amusing content for ex-christians in the early recovery phase, but this was always an irrelevant niche
>>11858307it'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.
>>11855754>underage as fuck: the threadFuck off summerfag retards.
>>11858381It 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.
>>11855754Is pee stored in the balls?
The Thought Emporium has some interesting vids. Like a bio codyslabhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3FcbFqSoQY
>>11858580Australian CodysLab, aka, Extractions&Ire / Explosions&Fire is pretty good too.
>>11859147don't you dare compare muh memelord E&I/E&F to some boring Mormon fag
>>11859176Cody's an atheist not a mormon Also yes E&I is more entertaining, but cody has more variety.
>>11858580Can't wait for my hayfever to be cured in 10 years. Also, a bit lactose intolerant.
>>11855754NileRed for chemistry.What does /sci/ think of Numberphile?
>>11858307link one vsauce video mocking religion
>>11859458Illiterate tard, >>11858307 refers to >>11858268 which replies to a comment about thunderfoot, not vsauce.
>>11859401Never said Nurdrage isn't good. I just don't watch.
>>11859597let me guess, he said it would never work
>>11855754epic math time is pretty good despite the shitty channel namealso helps that he's exceedingly attractive>tfw no strong math bf>tfw ywn be strong math bf's cute CSci twink

>>11857228/sci/ in a nutshell
What I generally watch that I haven't seen mentioned here yetTwo Minute Papers - Some slavic guy going over recent machine learning/neural network papers with good examples in eachTech 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 interestingMachine Thinking - more history of engineering, with some 'look at me lathe this shit', but still fun
NileRed is based and organic synthesispilled
>>11862534is she jew?
>>11862823no, but youtube is
3blue1brown is also very good
>>11855754Anton Petrov too, lots of astronomy videos and news on publicationshttps://www.youtube.com/user/whatdamathTwo Minute Papers: new publications particularly in computer sciencehttps://www.youtube.com/user/keeroyz
Thoughts on veritasium?
>>11862952some cool stuff sometimes but mostly normie-tier
>>11862935he sucks and his videos are for brainlets lol, watch real lectures or read a textbook fucking faggot
>>11857228I'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.
>>11863178It'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.
>>11863151I'm not claiming to have quality joke videos though
>>11862952used to be a decent chanel about physics, but became shitty pop-sci clickbait.
>>11860833he really needs to clear his nose
Just found this qt 3.14.https://youtu.be/1F7cfDde7-E
Sciencephile the AI used to be good, now it’s shit
>>11862973Eh 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
>>11865274He 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, VeritasiumYouTube obviously is piled to the brim with pure shit, but it's also led to some really cool stuff
>>11863860/sci/ new queen
>>11865618You 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.
>>11855838he 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
PhD in neuroscience. Dude is a little crazy but his book contain the absolute truthhttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuoFIyMX7PmlwwdmpXfyeNA
