These Pools Help Support Half The People On Earth
What are these electric blue ponds in the middle of the Utah desert? And why do they keep changing color?
Join Derek Muller (Veritasium) as he looks into the weird, bizarre, and seemingly inexplicable images found on Google Earth to discover what on Earth they actually are. It’s a travel vlog, documentary, and science show wrapped into one. It’s Pindrop.

Im wondering how these days of water shortage will impact this process.
He looks weird dressed like Geo. Washington.
Where’s Pindrop Episode 2?
Derek talking to people at Dead Horse Point overlook who hadn’t yet seen the placard that explains what the ponds are. 😆
That was an awesome video, as usual! But… where’s the rest of the series? haha
I have seen those in person
what was in the balloon
Plz bring more of this
I’ve seen the word before, no idea what it meant, thought it was pronounced poe-tash 😆
There’s some similar looking ponds in Southeast florida, just west of Miami, that I always wondered about and thought this video may be referencing.. but turns out those are just limestone quarries lol
I just subscribed to the University of Veritasium
How does the evaporation effect the weather system? Wouldn’t evaporating that much water change the weather?
The bucket of water landed
I guessed it correctly.
so nice an explaination!! thank you
The map shown to denote Germany for the year 1861 makes little sense. There did not exist an official state of Germany then, just Prussia, Bavaria, Austria, and other smaller entities within the German Confederation of 1815-1866. The area of the German Confederation reached much farther to the east and south than what’s shown at 8:58.
how is there only one episode of this series? what . where . who??
What a cheap way of making an explosive.
8:52 "Lumber"? Sawn wood? Perhaps "timber" was used?
It is not a good thing that we are over populating.
When I saw how big that chunk of potassium was I knew we were in for a big bang.

NOW I know why if you cover a huge stump with sacks of fertilizer and ignite it the stump will be blown out of the ground!!🔥
thats great to know that hundreds of thousands of gallons of the dying colorado river are deliberately being evaporated away on purpose… Can we drink Potash?? Whatever company is profitting off of this waste I hope that they also live in an area that depends on the Colorado River for survival. If they dont, then they need to be forced to live out here as well since they helped this water crisis along as they get rich and care about nothing but lining their own pockets..
18:27 "Sports People" are called Athletes my friend. 😄
i learn alot’s from this video .. tq
Why today November 30, 2022 are farmers saying there’s a shortage of potash ?
I learned about potash because of our food crisis. Russia is a major supplier of potash and you can bet Putin is using global dependency on potash to his advantage during the war.
So when do we get to find out about the abandoned city off the coast of Japan?
So blue Gatorade is blue because it’s full of copper sulfate. I never knew that! COOL!
We native Americans demand a cut of all revenue made in the USA
Now that marijuana is legal in many States….we should been well stocked up on pot ash.
I don’t like YouTube style.
when is next pindrop video coming?????
How many gamma rays from these fields?
Wouldn’t the copper sulfate need to be removed from the potash somehow?
Great video. It shows the interconnectivity and importance of another, largely unknown, industry to the rest of society.
i know how to make gunpowder now 🙂
Here in Muskoka, Ontario, Canada, our forests and lakes are mineral deficient due to acid rain. We have a program that collects wood ash from homes and the ash is spread in the forests near water bodies. I spread mine on my lawn and forest areas, which are next to a large lake.
I have a mysterious photo of something I took while on the flight to California from Atlanta. I was literally sleep and woke up facing my window and as I open my eyes, I saw what looks like a extremely large silver plate. I immediately grab my camera and took a photo. I wish I could get it to this guy.
So fortunate to have Vetitas! And that’s the truth!
When you mentioned that mining is one of the most dangerous jobs in the world, it reminded me of another dangerous job. Saturation diving! I’d love to see an episode of that!
So pot ash was a thing and then this guy came along and decided he’d try it and so he gets to be famous for it? Shenanigans.
Once again ,another holy grail video. I mean, I always loved your channel forreal, but the consistency of your content is just unmatched to me.
4:29 indoor rain
made from ash
That thumping noise during the drone part of the video is incredibly annoying. Otherwise great video and interesting altogether.
Hold on, where is the point of saying a brands name like getorade but having the lable removed from the bottle
