This year, on our 178th anniversary, Scientific American tried something new: we started a TikTok account. It’s the same high-quality science coverage you know and love, just in a shorter (and perhaps sillier) form.

In case you missed them, here are five of our most popular TikToks so far.

You can get more bite-sized science by following us on TikTok. But if TikTok isn’t your cup of tea, head to our Instagram or YouTube for the same great videos.
