Physics Videos and Physics Animations

Hello everyone! This month I have all kinds of physics videos and physics animations. They include: Neutrinos travel faster than light at CERN, Physics flash animations, Murray GellMann talks about creative ideas, Fluid mechanics animations, Mission to Mars, The real Stephen Hawking, Secret life of chaos.

Measurement of the neutrino velocity

Video description:
This video is from an emergency conference called at CERN. Scientists were surprised when they heard that neutrinos travel faster than light. This video is all about it. Keywords: opera, cern, neutrinos, gps, velocity, distance, speed of light.

Flash Animations for Physics

Animations include:
Chaos. Classical Mechanics. Electricity and Magnetism. Fluid Mechanics. Micrometer Caliper. Miscellaneous. Nuclear. Optics. Oscilloscope. Quantum Mechanics. Relativity. Sound Waves. Vectors. Waves.

Murray Gell-Mann on Creative Ideas

Video description:
Murray Gell-Mann is one of the largest living legends in physics. He's also been described as The Man With Five Brains, and it's no puzzle why: He was admitted to Yale at 15, got his PhD from MIT at 21, and is an international advisor on the environment. He speaks 13 languages fluently (at last count), and has expertise in such far-ranging fields as natural history, historical linguistics, archaeology, bird-watching, depth psychology, and the theory of complex adaptive systems. He also coined the term "quark," after developing key aspects of the modern theory of quantum physics for which he earned an unshared Nobel prize in physics.

Fluid Mechanics Animations

Fluid animations include:
Aerodynamics Generation of Sound. Cavitation. Channel Flow of a Compression Fluid. Deformation of Continuous Media. Euler or Eulerian Lagrangian Description. Flow Instabilities. Flow Visualization. Fluid Dynamics of Drag. Fluid Quantity and Flow. Fundamentals-Boundary Layers. Low Reynolds Number Flow. Magnetohydrodynamics. Pressure Fields and Fluid Acceleration. Rarefied Gas Dynamics. Rheological Behavior of Fluids. Rotating Flows. Secondary Flow. Stratified Flow. Surface Tension in Fluid Mechanics. Turbulence. Vorticity. Waves in Fluids.

Mission to Mars

Video description:
Google tech talk on the upcoming 2020 mission to Mars. In January 2010 the speaker spent two weeks at the Mars Desert Research Station, a simulated Mars base in the Utah desert. Although the Martian conditions were simulated, the science was real, as were the isolation, hostile environment, and problems faced by the six-person crew. Although his official title was Crew Journalist, he soon found himself repairing space suits, helping to keep the habitat running, and having interplanetary adventures he'd never before imagined. His talk on the experience is profusely illustrated with photographs and has gotten rave reviews. Please see for more information. Speakers name is David D. Levine and he's a science fiction writer. He's sold over 40 short stories to all the major markets, including Asimov's and Analog, and he's won a Hugo Award, been nominated for the Nebula, and won or been shortlisted for many other awards as well as appearing in numerous Year's Best anthologies. He retired in 2007 after a 25-year career as a technical writer, software engineer, and user interface designer for Tektronix, Intel, and McAfee and now spends his days writing, traveling, and getting into trouble.

The Real Stephen Hawking

Video description:
Steven Hawking is the most famous scientist since Einstein, the very image of the disabled genius, a prodigious mind trapped in a useless body. This film goes behind the Hawking phenomenon to tell the extraordinary life story of the man who was given two years to live in 1963. His mother and youngest son are among the contributors. Hawking's present status is owed to that great unread bestseller, A Brief History Of Time. But is he a genius? He, for one, doesn't think so.

The Secret Life of Chaos

Video description:
This is a video from the BBC that attempts to explain in the most simplest terms how simple systems can turn into very complex systems. Chaos theory has a bad name, conjuring up images of unpredictable weather, economic crashes and science gone wrong. But there is a fascinating and hidden side to Chaos, one that scientists are only now beginning to understand. It turns out that chaos theory answers a question that mankind has asked for millennia - how did we get here? In this documentary, Professor Jim Al-Khalili sets out to uncover one of the great mysteries of science - how does a universe that starts off as dust end up with intelligent life? How does order emerge from disorder?

Enjoy the videos!
