    Default astrophysics/theoretical physics and Youtube



    I thought maybe it would be a good idea to have a thread where people could link the best youtube videos they have seen on these topics. I know there are some great lectures and scientist interviews on youtube, but unless I know what to search I can't find them. I'd love for anyone that watches these scientific videos on youtube to share their favorites with me, and maybe the rest of the forum would enjoy that as well.

    Thanks.

    That is a great idea. I don't know on AF where they could be listed. Maybe start an astrophysics group and list them there.

    The Fabric Of The Cosmos - What Is Space?

    Gravity

    The Universe In A Nutshell

    These are some of my favorites, but they may not be quite as technical as some like.

    I really like these videos Cosmic Journeys
    They are not too technical but more for the general viewer. I think they are well done.

    over the next few nights I'm going to watch all the onese listed. Thanks for starting off this thread so well everyone. One video I enjoyed was, The Mutliverse and its Many Interpretations which is an interview with Dr. Brian Greene. Anyone who has seen his PBS specials or read his books will be familiar with the content being covered. If not, it's pretty informative although certainly not technical.

    Brilliant idea. I often use youtube for different videos. I will contribute too, when I can think of some I've watched.

    Here are the 5 parts of a documentary thats consists in the biography of 4 brilliant men: Galilue Galilei, Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.
    The title of the videos is in portuguese and it means "Brilliant Minds". The subtitles are also in portuguese but the documentary is in english so I think you will understand..
    It is a wonderful documentary to see and that's why I am sharing it with you guys
    Hope you enjoy!
