Another great video from Veritasium.
Circa 1980’s I’m guessing. From the Australian Kids TV Show “The Curiosity Show”.
His contributions to Physics and his ability to popularize science have secured his place in history, his triumph over motor neuron disease have made him a legend. It is rare that a real human is far more compelling a character than anything fiction could dream up.
Wow, so cool.
Every year students ask me questions about quantum mechanics. And I have to say “It’s weird.” and leave it largely at that. Here’s a good reason why…
I have one of these somewhere. They are amazing to watch. The laws of thermodynamics at work.
How did people live in such density before sanitation?
Malaria kills over one million people per year. This could be big, regardless of strange side effects.
This accounts for a great deal of bad policy decisions I think.
Bad stuff here. NASA image of the wildfires from space.
Okay so one of my fun facts this week was that humans kill a million sharks each year, but sharks only kill about six humans per year. Well, I was wrong. Humans kill 100 MILLION sharks each year.
And speaking of sharks…
Could early hominids have been walking around in Germany 9.7 million years ago? I doesn’t seem likely, and it’s a bit much to derive from two teeth.
Here is the slightly “fringe” article (warning: ad clogged website)…
And here is a response from National Geographic…
Ancient Teeth Found in Europe Belonged to Mystery Primate
Two terms that should go together, but don’t seem to. This article is pretty scary.
A Homebuilt 200W LASER Bazooka
Take note: This young man has a Bachelor’s degree Chemistry and advanced classes in Laser optics, this is very dangerous!
Nice video but the narration is annoying at first.
Here is another great video on relativity by NRHS alumni (2016) Ryan Chester.
Nearly a century after it was theorized, Harvard scientists have succeeded in creating metallic hydrogen. In addition to helping scientists answer fundamental questions about the nature of matter, the material is theorized to have a wide range of applications, ranging from room-temperature superconductors to powerful rocket propellant.
This is cool…
OSU Researcher George Poinar discovered an ancient insect, frozen in amber, so unusual that a new order had to be created. This creature has a triangular head that makes it look like ET.
Material science is still in it’s infancy. But each year we are designing new and amazing substances that will eventually change the way we live.
Now this is interesting…
Very well done. Sub atomic physics is really weird.
Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
