I have just found a perfect match between animation and science, specifically physics, on New Scientist Site. They are short videos, about a minute long that explain some simple or complicated physic theories whit haste but completely understandable language.

It´s worth taking some minutes to learn a little bit about this interesting things.
Here’s an example. I can’t post here a video itself, but you can watch them on the page.
For everyone out there 🙂 ,this is the first post in the blog, where I will be publishing some videos that I made, some tips and tricks, and a couple of different things related to animation and myself. If you know me, you’ll know that I’m from Mexico and I am supposed to write in spanish, but I need to keep practicing my english, so….
So let’s get started!
