Popular Science Physics Video Lectures

Hi all! This month I have a collection of popular science physics lectures, that do not require much math knowledge.

The videos include: Richard Feynman's Messenger Lectures, an interview with Richard Feynman, young Albert Einstein, explanation of Schrodinger's cat, ferrofluid, a trip inside LHC, quantum computing, upcoming revolutions in theoretical physics, multiverse and parallel universes, 100 greatest physics discoveries, and discovery of fullorene.


Richard Feynman's Messenger Lectures


Bill Gates purchased these Messenger Video Lectures and put these 7 video lectures online for free. Feynman talks about the law of gravitation, the relation of mathematics and physics, the great conservation principles, symmetry in physics, the distinction of past and future, probability and uncertainty, the quantum mechanical view of nature, and seeking of new laws.


Richard Feynman Describes the "Fun to Imagine"


Feynman puts it right, if you devote a lot of time to studies, you become a scientist. He also tries to describe how scientists think. Then he describes how he tried to count at the same time and do other things.


Richard Feynman Explains Why Train Stays on the Tracks


You thought the train stays on the tracks because of flanges on the wheels? Not so. Turns out the wheels are thinner on the inside and thicker on the outside. That prevents the train to slip off the tracks.



Young Albert Einstein


A video of young Albert Einstein at school. His teacher says that the God is evil because he created everything, also he created evil, and therefore he's evil. Albert disproves his professor.


Schrödinger's Cat Explained


A video on the Schroedinger cat's paradox in quantum physics.


Magnet Meets Magnetic Flux


Called ferrofluid, these are basically tiny iron particles that are covered with a liquid coating; a wetting agent is used to give it a liquid look. When influenced by a strong magnetic field, the ferrofluid quickly changes phases, as you'll see after the break.


Inside LHC


Exploration of CERN, the world's largest particle physics laboratory, to determine whether its 17 miles of tubing buried under the Franco-Swiss border will reveal the origin of mass in the universe – or generate an earth-devouring black hole. Includes chortle with the proton-smashing scientists about the concerns of the scientific illiterate.


Marcus Chown on Quantum Computing


Making Quantum Theory Understandable. How Particles Can Be in Two Places at Once. Other Bizarre Aspects of the Quantum World. How Quantum Computers Work. Analyzing String Theory. The Mystery of Dark Energy. Unexplained Aspects of the Big Bang. A New Theory of Gravity. Unanswered Questions. Misadventures on an Astronomy Cruise. Meeting Richard Feynman. Quantum Theory and the Law of Conservation. The Truth Behind Black Holes. Bridging the Gap Between Science and Literature. Quantum Theory and the Human Body. The Source of Scientific Innovation. Dark Energy and Inflation After the Big Bang.


Michio Kaku on Multiverse and Parallel Universes


Scientific observations from Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) satellite suggests that we are living not in a Universe but in a Multivese, where baby universes get born and we are located in one of them.


The Coming Revolutions in Theoretical Physics (UC Berkeley)


David Gross, most known for asymptotic theory of quarks talks about the upcoming revolutions in theoretical physics in areas such as the string theory, the unified field theory and cosmology.


100 Greatest Physics Discoveries


The video answers questions such as: How the Universe works? What holds matter together and what is this strange force, gently enough to make an apple fall yet powerful enough to lock the moon in captive orbit? Our need to understand has inspired humankind's greatest discoveries. From unleashing the fearsome power of the atom. To uncovering the nature of light itself. To revealing the forces that hold our entire universe together. These are the greatest discoveries in Physics. It includes topics such as The Law of Falling Bodies, Universal Gravitation, Laws of Motion, Electromagnetism, Thermodynamics, Special Relativity, Einstein's E=mc2, Light and Particles.


Discovery of Carbon-60 (buckminsterfullerene, fullerene)


This is a documentary about the discovery of C60, the fullerene. It's the largest molecule that physicists have observed interference on.


Have fun guys! Till next month!
