French independent filmmaker Thomas Vanz‘s short movie, “Novae,” features some seriously striking supernova imagery.
A supernova is an event where a star explodes and dies, creating a massive explosion in space. This happens when a significant change occurs in a star’s core. While it’s not often that we are able to see them in our galaxy, you could swear that Vanz documented one himself or used computer-generated images in the film.
However, all he needed to capture this stunning footage was an aquarium, ink, and water.
Pretty jaw-dropping, right? If you’re wondering how in the world he managed to do this, you can find out in the video below.
