Amazing short videos about science and other topics

I have found a series of educational videos on YouTube sponsored by various organisations around the world, including the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Australian Academy of Science. It is called Kurzgesagt, which is German for 'shortly said', but better translated as 'in a nutshell'. Each video last between 5 and 10 minutes, but they are very well made and incredibly informative. I highly recommend to watch all of them. Many videos are also available in German and Russian.

Here are a few videos about biology.
