Physics/The Universe - Fun to Imagine

in #blog2 years ago

I just stumbled upon this precious video.

Richard Feynman's Fun to Imagine series of episodes - summed up in one high-quality video.

Some answers?
Why auntie broke her hip?
Why is ice slippery? Why atoms and magnets repel/attract each other.
How does fire work? And lots of other stuff.

List of topics:

  • Jiggling Atoms
  • Fire
  • Rubber Bands
  • Magnets
  • Electricity
  • Mirror and Train puzzles
  • Seeing Things
  • Big Numbers
  • Ways of Thinking

I love the fire video. I found that so facinating, especially since I have a background in fire protection technology. Fire is the release of the energy of the sun. Amazing. He also explains things so well, in a way that anyone can understand.

The guy is on FIRE! :) Very good teacher - and knows how to share knowledge - both in basics things, but also amazing lecturer at the university level - his lecture material is still used and easily accessible online and his notes are archived and are kept as sacred notebooks :D

Apart from that - he got Nobel Prize in physics for amazing discovery in quantum physics... Such an awesome guy, bit crazy but, aren't we all! :)
