Here's a selection of seven best popular science videos of the previous week:

VSause: what is money, what kinds of money are there, and how much is there?

Veritasium 2: Newton laid the foundation of mechanics, optics, and invented calculus, a new kind of mathematics, when he was 24. Einstein proved the existence of atoms and molecules, the particle nature of light, and created the theory of special relativity, all at the age of 26. Why are revolutionary scientists young?
