NEW SHOW! | The Science of Seeing

Watch Paradigms Here: http://vrv.co/paradigms And please let me know what you think! Paradigms is a pilot for a new show about how we know what we know, produced in collaboration with MinuteEarth (http://youtube.com/minuteearth), Veritasium (http://youtube.com/veritasium), and Aatish Bhatia. The first episode is about the science of seeing, from the extramission theories of the ancient Greeks […]

The Brown Dwarf Debate

Thanks to NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) project and the Space Telescope Science Institute for supporting this video. This video is about the line between Brown dwarfs and gas giant planets (aka super Jupiter’s): does it exist? Is it the deuterium-burning threshold? Behavior? Metallicity? Formation? Or is there no meaningful scientific distinction, and are […]

Minute Physics: What is Gravity?

One Minute Physics provides an energetic and entertaining view of old and new problems in physics — all in one minute! In this episode, we discuss the basic nature of gravity, one of the four fundamental forces in our universe. Come back for a new video every week! Created by Henry Reich

Minute Physics: What is Dark Matter?

Minute Physics provides an energetic and entertaining view of old and new problems in physics — all in one minute! In this episode, we discuss Dark Matter, an exotic type of matter we know very little about, despite the fact that it makes up around 80% of all matter in the universe! Created by Henry […]
