Vídeo Why the triple axel is such a big deal

comentarios
Triple axels can turn skaters into legends. This is why.\n\nWatch the rest of Skate Week, and our other sports explainers, here: http://bit.ly/2FfxM17\n\nSubscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO\n\nNote: The video states Mirai Nagasu was the second American to land a triple axel in competition (this was recorded before her Olympic success). In 2005, American Kimmy Miessner completed a triple axel in national competition, though not world competition. You can read about it here: http://www.espn.com/olympics/news/story?id=1967992\n\nWant to see Tonya' Harding's routine? You can find one version here:\nhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MdC5G7CDvbI\n\nIn this episode of Vox Almanac, Phil Edwards explores the triple axel and why it's such a big deal. The figure skating jump is legendary among ice skaters, from Tonya Harding's 1991 triple axel to modern icon Mirai Nagasu's attempts in competition. It turns out that the physics of the triple axel makes it a uniquely difficult jump — and one worth learning about.\n\nAs a forward-edge jump, the mechanics of a triple axel requires technical acumen from skaters while they still try to maintain an artistically interesting performance. Pioneers like Midori Ito and Tonya Harding had to jump, ramp up rotation speed, and then land all while trying to look good. This effort set them apart from competitors like Nancy Kerrigan, but it wasn't easy to land a triple axel in competition.\n\nAnd that difficulty might be why the triple axel endures as the pinnacle of figure skating performance — and why it's sure to light up the 2018 Winter Olympics as well.\n\nVox.com is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.

Why Stradivarius violins are worth millions
Many musicians prefer these 300-year-old instruments, but are they actually worth it?\n\nSubscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO\n\nAntonio Stradivari is generally considered the greatest violin maker of all time. His violins are played by some of the top musicians in the world and sell for as much as $16 million. For centuries people have puzzled over what makes his violins so great and they are the most scientifically studied instruments in history. I spoke to two world class violinists who play Stradivarius violins as well as a violin-maker about what makes Stradivari so great. \n\nSpecial thanks to Stefan Avalos for the Stradivari research footage.\n\nVox.com is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.

But the biohazard symbol? It’s pretty easy to spot. Most warning icons rely on previously established objects or symbols: a general caution might use an exclamation point, and a fire warning might use an illustration of a flame. But the biohazard symbol references an idea that is much harder to picture — and in the 50 years since its invention, it has become one of the most recognizable icons on the planet. But can the meaning of a symbol like this last an eternity? A special Department of Energy project is trying to figure that out. \n\nRead more: https://goo.gl/U82Ehn\n\nThis video was made in partnership with 99% Invisible, a podcast about all the thought that goes into the things we don’t think about, hosted by Roman Mars.
