Fascinating animation of flying thorugh a 3d mandelbox.
A Mandelbox is a box-like fractal object that shares several properties with the well known Mandelbrot set, it is a map of continuous, shape preserving Julia sets.
This means the object varies at different locations, since each area uses a Julia set fractal with a unique formula.
This Discovery Channel documentary explores the depths of the human mind, its mechanisms of reasoning and awareness that we are all born with, as well as its evolution over the ages.
Hosted and narrated by Canada’s legendary scientist, Dr. David Suzuki.
Bioengineering at MIT is represented by the diverse curricula offered by most Departments in the School of Engineering. The beginning lectures describe the science basis for bioengineering with particular emphasis on molecular cell biology and systems biology. Bioengineering faculty will then describe the bioengineering options in a particular engineering course as well as the type of research conducted by faculty in the department.
Brave New World is a show about our future and the technological advances that await us. Except Stephen Hawking of course, many more science celebrities are featured in this show, such as Richard Dawkins and Jim Al-Khalili.
Only the first two episodes are available for now.
I posted the fourth episode of this show some time ago, but finally here’s the complete series with all 4 episodes. It has interesting information coupled with great presentation and CGI. Quite surprising for a Discovery Channel production 🙂
In September 2011, an international group of scientists has made an astonishing claim – they have detected particles that seemed to travel faster than the speed of light.
In this film, Professor Marcus du Sautoy explores one of the most dramatic scientific announcements for a generation. In clear, simple language he tells the story of the science we thought we knew, how it is being challenged, and why it matters.
Professor Brian Cox visits Geneva to take a look around Cern’s Large Hadron Collider before this vast, 27km long machine is sealed off and a simulation experiment begins to try and create the conditions that existed just a billionth of a second after the Big Bang.
Simon Fölling studies quantum many-body systems, such as the ones found in magnetic and semiconducting materials, by using ultracold atomic gases. At TEDxCaltech event, he talks about quantum simulations; field of science connecting material science with quantum nature of reality.
This is a BBC Horizon documentary about the Earth’s molten core.
Horizon follows scientists who are conducting experiments to recreate this core within their own laboratories, with surprising results.
Prof. Michele Mosca, deputy director of the Institute for Quantum Computing, delivers an introduction to quantum information processing during the 2011 Undergraduate School on Quantum Information Processing (USEQIP).
