The Motion Of The Ocean

This NASA animation of global ocean currents is pretty amazing.  Look at the Gulf Stream go, and check out all of those gyres forming and spinning...

This type of project elegantly demonstrates the inherent beauty in nature and science, but is also extremely useful for helping to understand how the world's oceans behave and connect and interact.
