Hi Friends,

I thought it would be interesting if all of us put our favorite physics video links that are available in the internet for all to share. Here's a list of mine:

1. Walter Lewin lecture series from MIT

2. Leonard Susskind lectures from Stanford

3. Carl Sagan's Cosmos series

Kindly add your favorites to this list. Let us all enjoy these masterpieces :)
Cheers.

The engineer in this video died a few weeks ago. His funeral was attended by Bob Pease who was killed in a car crash leaving the funeral. Both men were well known in Silicon Valley.

:surprised WOW! Skeptic2 that video was AWESOME!!!

It was neat to see a demo video on youtube that wasn't trying to violate any established conservation laws. Also, the concepts in that video have inspired a few ideas of my own that I think could help me get past a serious problem in my own personal research...Many thanks :smile:

I am a big fan of the http://www.dimensions-math.org/Dim_E.htm" [Broken] series - the visualisations are beautiful, especially the long zoom deep into a Mandelbrot set in Ep 6!

Re: Favourite physics videos in internet

It's not physics, but this is probably one of the greatest science videos online in my opinion

Short version

Longer version with commentary

Since most of these videos aren't physics I might as well post something that isn't 100% physics:

Nano, the next dimension (Film produced for European Commission)

Re: Favourite physics videos in internet

Which videos actually *use* animations along with explanations? I only find video lectures effective if they actually have animations.

The Mechanical Universe is the one I really know of (just skip Goodstein's stuff and the history stuff).

He was over 90 years old when he made those. While I greatly respect his longevity and achievements even at over 90 (one of my old email addresses was even named after him), it's still nearly impossible to follow his words when he's that old. :(

I found a weird video on youtube that teaches specific heat.

I know they're old but Feynmans "Messanger Lectures" on the character of physical law.

Sidney Coleman's Quantum Field Theory videos. I went through these over and over during my QFT class last year. I really feel like he has been my teacher.
