WATCH: What It Looks Like in the Eye of a Hurricane

Humans can’t help but be fascinated by what might destroy them, including all forms of natural disasters. There’s a reason storm chasers exist, after all.

This video shows a few scientists, who are essentially really high-tech storm chasers here, fly straight into one of the most destructive of natural forces. They navigate the plane straight into the fabled eye of a hurricane. The footage is predictably amazing and oddly peaceful.

In short, it looks sort of like they’ve stumbled upon a planet of surreal clouds. It’s hard to describe but it’s worth watching. So watch it above, enjoy, and don’t try this at home.
