New computer simulations reveal supernovae exploding in 3-D. A team led by researchers at Princeton University developed the simulations, which are based on the idea that the collapsing star itself is not sphere-like, but distinctly asymmetrical and affected by a host of instabilities in the volatile mix surrounding its core.

From the description at YouTube: Ryan is based on the life of Ryan Larkin, a Canadian animator who, 30 years ago, produced some of the most influential animated films of his time. In the film, we hear the voices of prominent animators and artists discussing Ryan’s work, and from waitresses, mission-house caretakers and homeless people who make up Ryan’s life. These voices speak through strange, twisted, and disembodied, computer-generated characters–which combine to reflect the film’s creator, Chris Landreth. In the words of Anais Nin, “We don’t see things as they are. We see things as we are.” WORK WARNING: Profanity. Found at YouTube from nfb.
