Physics

Neil deGrasse Tyson was asked by the Templeton Foundation to answer the question “Does the Universe Have a Purpose”. Then he read his answer aloud and I drew some pictures for it. http://www.templeton.org/purpose/ You can buy MinutePhysics T-shirts at http://dftba.com/minutephysics MinutePhysics is on Google+ – http://bit.ly/qzEwc6 And facebook – http://facebook.com/minutephysics And twitter – @minutephysics Minute

To reach our global goal of being net zero carbon emissions by 2050, we must solve one problem – energy storage. Thank you to Toyota for lending us the #Mirai and for sponsoring this series. Scientists, researchers, and engineers are working to develop innovative ways of addressing the intermittency of wind and solar energy. I

To keep your brain sharp with quick daily math & science puzzles, head to http://www.brilliant.org/minutephysics This video is about how to create muons in a particle accelerator via bombardment of heavy nuclei with protons, which results in creation of charged pions (plus and minus). The pions then decay into muons and mu neutrinos, and the

Have you ever seen a blur of color when looking away from a projector screen? Or noticed how flashing lights look different colors when you move your eyes? This is an everyday mystery! The answer lies in persistence of vision and how your brain processes what it sees. If you liked this video check out

How an 8000V electromagnet can be used to shrink a quarter. The interplay between electric and magnetic forces leads to the Lorentz Force and Faraday’s law of induction which can be used to shrink a quarter, or any other type of metal coin.
