Evening ladies and gents!

Anyone have any great physics/science-related websites they'd like to share? I need a bit of something to counteract all the cognitive degeneration earned by seeing "Hit share if u luv Jesus keep scrolling if u luv devil" all day on my Facebook.

Big fan of Sixty Symbols, I check Scientific American often...and that's about it.

So, what've you got?

Thanks!

Cheers,
Daniel

But I hear they love fish there!

But seriously, I always enjoy hyperphysics.

Leonard susskinds lectures on youtube, they're pretty good!
There's also minute physics on youtube if you want less math

Sixty symbols is good, I prefer it to minute physics.
