The Poetry of Science: Richard Dawkins and Neil deGrasse Tyson

Two of science’s luminaries converse on the beauty of science. Neil deGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist and host of NOVA and evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins will explore the wonders of the Cosmos and of Life, its origins, its inspirations, and why science is not just an option, it is the only reality we possess.

This is a brilliant talk by some of the brightest scientific minds. Both of them great speakers and great teachers.

Periodic Table of Elements: Mendelevium to Ununoctium (101 – 118)

This is a series of short documentary videos about the chemical elements. Each video describes the properties of one element in a few minutes, often with experiments. It is truly a must watch for anyone interested in chemistry.
Here are the videos for the final 18 elements of the periodic table of elements, starting with Mendelevium to Ununoctium.

Periodic Table of Elements: Antimony to Fermium (51 – 100)

This is a series of short documentary videos about the chemical elements. Each video describes the properties of one element in a few minutes, often with experiments. It is truly a must watch for anyone interested in chemistry. This the second part of the Table of Elements, it contains videos about the elements with the atomic numbers from 51 to 100.

Periodic Table of Elements: Hydrogen to Tin (1 – 50)

This is a series of short documentary videos about the chemical elements. Each video describes the properties of one element in a few minutes, often with experiments. It is truly a must watch for anyone interested in chemistry.
Here are the videos for the first 50 elements of the periodic table of elements, starting with Hydrogen all the way to Tin.

Carl Sagan’s Last Interview

Carl Sagan gave his last interview with Charlie rose on May 27th 1996. He discussed pseudo-science, religion, unfounded claims, his personal love affair with science and his struggle with myelodysplasia as well as other elements of his last book: The Demon-Haunted World.

Parallel Universes

This is 2001 BBC Horizon documentary film mostly dealing with string theory, M-theory, supergravity and the existence of parallel universes, each one a bit different from the other, with different histories, different event and different laws of physics, thus assuming that everything will happen somewhere, sometime in some universe. Even the same people exist in multiple universes, where their lives may be drastically different, or may even not exist at all…thus encompassing all the possible universes, all possible realities in one multi-verse.
Participants in the documentary include Michio Kaku and Paul Steinhardt.

Hunting for Neutrinos

This is a CERN documentary about the neutrino, an elementary particle that usually travels close to the speed of light, is electrically neutral, has close to zero mass, and is able to pass through ordinary matter almost undisturbed. Naturally such properties make it extremely difficult to detect so this documentary also covers the scientific methods involved in hunting down the neutrino.

Stanford: Quantum Entanglements by Prof. Leonard Susskind

This is a series of lectures from Stanford University, concentrating on Quantum Entanglements. Lecturer is Professor Leonard Susskind, a professor of theoretical Physics at Stanford University, probably best known for his confrontation with Stephen Hawking on the nature of black holes.
Here we have a series of 9 lectures, each almost 2 hours long, enjoy.
