Have you ever looked up into the sky and asked yourself why clouds have different colors, how fast can they travel, why we can’t live on them, and if it is okay to have ones head in the clouds? At least for the question why clouds stay up, Joe Hanson, a Ph.D. biologist and science writer based in Austin, TX, is willing to tell you how it all works, especially the thing with the clouds. We bet you didn’t know that clouds can easily weigh as much as a jumbo jet because they are full of water, so why don’t they just fall out of the sky? Well, buoyancy is the magic explanation. And, well, condensation, but we don’t want to spoil the fun of watching this highly informative and fun little episode on one of the world’s biggest wonders.
