Science Thursday

Here's an educational video for you.  Ever wonder what ant colonies look like underground?  Well this video show what happens if you fill a giant ant colony with a thin concrete mixture, let the concrete dry and then dig it all up.

When I was in college,  I played a game called SimAnt for a few days.  Not nearly as cool as this though.  I'm guessing my backyard ants do pretty much the same thing on a smaller scale.  Pretty amazing if you ask me!  How they get air that deep I can't figure out.
