Here’s one for the weather nerds.

Researchers at UW-Madison used supercomputers to create a visually stunning simulation of the supercell that spawned several tornadoes May of 2011. The strongest to be produced was the EF-5 that struck El Reno, Oklahoma.

The thing that strikes me the most every time I watch something like this is just how tiny the tornado itself is compared to the massive size of the supercell. Breathtaking.
