ICYMI: Skyjumping science experiments and more

Today on In Case You Missed It: University of Melbourne researchers studying non-sized crystals (that might one day be used to store greenhouse gases) needed to know what the nanoparticles would do in low-gravity, so they jumped off a plane while holding them. Scientists from Ohio State developed a bottle coating to let shampoo and soap inside of plastic bottles flow freely, rather than get stuck.

This maker got really excited about visualizing what the inside of modern computer looks like, so he built a huge one. As always, please share any interesting tech or science videos you find by using the #ICYMI hashtag on Twitter for @mskerryd.
