Interesting science websites?

LD5050 - 20-2-2018 at 11:09

What are some other cool/interesting science/chemistry websites that you frequent other than science madness? I try to look around occasionally to see what I can find. I love reading and learning about anything interesting. I love diy projects and when I can I sign up to get free magazines and product catalogues sent home to me. So with that said what are you cool sites? Even sites like united nuclear I find interesting because of the interesting things they sell.

There are youtube channels:
TutorVista (all theory about chemistry, physics, science... everything shown practically as animation).
NurdRage, Periodic Videos (these are theoretical + practical) and hundreds of other practical channels, including members from here (Texium, NileRed, mrhomescientist, toothpic993, hkparker, myst32yt...)

HowItsMade (stuff from discovery channel)
HowDoTheyDoIt (same as above) (theory) (looks like this dissappeared or moved to or could it be because first time i downloaded the boy chemist and golden book of chemistry experiments it was (well not only chemistry, but they introduced me a bit to chemistry with some example experiments)

KhanAcademy for android or pc or online.

And wikipedia of course, as best introduction to everything in life. They have whole chemistry categories, subcategories, lists...

For nuclear stuff like fusion and fission calculations:

But some offline stuff like pdf books may be better, I recommend:
CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics
Handbook of Inorganic Chemicals
Golden Book of Chemistry Experiments
The Boy Chemist

Woelen's site has a lot of cool stuff. Apart from that i can't think of much.

There’s another chemistry forum, although not as good as SM.

It’s called chemicalforums. I suspect there may be some members

here that are over there as well.

j_sum1 - 20-2-2018 at 15:40 is a brilliant resource. Better than any textbook I have come across for the basics.
Simple and uncluttered old-school style is great too. is the only periodic table you will ever want. Presentation of orbitals is outstanding is a great tool for balancing equations and stoichiometry.

Awesome guys thanks. I will definitely check all of these out. A lot of the suggestions I already know of but there are a couple I haven't come across yet but this is great I appreciate the replies!

Lateral Science is well worth an explore: Heaps of Victorian themed material

PBS Spacetime YouTube channel. Numberphile spewtube channel. Access to a user account that has top level privileges in regards to scholarly articles and shit... No fucking abstracts... whole papers and what not

I can't go past recommending Information Unlimited. These guys were a huge inspiration to me during high school era science nerdism. I never really grew out of it, I just made a plasma globe recently, something I first did after reading the plans from Robert Iannini's book Build Your Own Working Fiberoptic Infrared and Laser Space-Age Projects Now I can make the glass from scratch and make exotic gas mixes, but the projects back then taught me electronics and principles of physics with really cool projects like tesla coils and lasers (which were gas tubes and driven by high voltage power supplies until diodes changed that)

Oh... and fucking stack exchange! For Js and for so much more...

I’ll second Chemguide, we used it extensively in A-level chemistry alongside our textbooks since it’s designed for sixth-form education (basically college within a high school for the Americans here). Really easy to understand and it’ll have you learning OC in a pinch, although one thing is that it doesn’t go into depth when it comes to information not required for exams.
