The Periodic Table of Videos From University of Nottingham

Periodic Table, with colors representing numbers of views for each element's videos. Red is more than 200K, blue less than 10K.

I have a chronic problem of letting my issues of Science and Nature pile up. Having picked up an issue essentially at random from the pile, I experienced that reminder that I’m missing a lot by not keeping the pile under control.

Video journalist Brady Haran and chemist Martyn Poliakoff authored an article in the 27 May 2011 issue about their amazingly successful project to create videos for each element on the periodic table.

Having just watched the video for hydrogen, I am really impressed. It is no wonder that they have amassed a loyal following and over 15 million views in total. Lots to learn from this impressive science communication endeavor!
