YouTube Saturday: Science Nation Army

Using real footage and sounds from a working science lab, a group of students from Imperial College Science Communication Masters have produced a unique version of the White Stripes song Seven Nation Army. The video is cleverly edited, but shows all aspects of laboratory work. The researchers filmed are researching the effects of explosions from IED's (improvised explosive device) on cells, tissues and whole limbs. They spent hours setting up equipment to create a huge explosion lasting mere seconds, and then spent further hours analysing the results. One of the team, Anna Perrman, has a great piece on how the video went viral on the Guardian website and why they are so proud of what they've achieved!
