The Dust Bowl Years
I was inspired to make this video after watching the History Channel's special presentation of "Black Blizzard" which described in depth how and why the Dust Storms of the 1930's happened.

Why do black holes have such strong gravity?
This is a live video chat. The narrator was asked, “Why do black holes have such stronger gravity than the stars they formed from?” Here's the answer, gravity depends upon two things, the mass of the object and how far away you are from it.
