Professor Stephen Hawking is going to help you think like a genius, reveal your true potential and change what you know about time travel.
The fate of the solar system is written in the stars. Astronomers are searching the skies for spectacular cosmic events that mirror our own distant future. As a result they can predict how the sun and its planets will end in remarkable detail. It's an apocalyptic vision where galaxies collide, planets melt and life is wiped out. In this documentary, modern day prophets recreate the hellish conditions our world may face in its last moments.
From award winning producer David Grubin this biography presents a complex and revealing portrait of one of the most important American scientists of the twentieth century. Interweaving interviews with family members, scholars and colleagues with dramatic recreations featuring Academy Award nominated actor David Strathairn, Good Night, and Good Luck, and The Bourne Ultimatum, this program follows J. Robert Oppenheimer on a fascinating arc through the century, from the heady world of international physics to the top secret Manhattan Project, and finally to the dark days of the Red Scare and McCarthyism.
Neil deGrasse Tyson talks about the neutrino from astrophysics and historical discovery.
Each episode focuses on a single engineering specialty, like blasting, underwater construction, forensic engineering, robotics and virtual engineering.
For millennia, people have wanted to understand the universe. They have looked at the night skies, and wondered what makes the stars shine. November 26, 2007, had promised to be an extraordinary date - it was the day scheduled by scientists to recreate the conditions right after the Big Bang. This was when the building blocks of the universe were created. By revisiting the beginning of time, scientists hoped to unlock some of the universe's deepest secrets. Sometime in the coming months the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the most complex scientific instrument ever built, will recreate this phenomenon. By turning on the LHC scientists hoped to finally reveal one of the most elusive particles in our Universe - the Higgs boson, also called the God particle.
In 1995 Edward Witten, aided by others from Princeton's Institute for Advanced Study, revolutionised string theory by successfully uniting the five different versions into a single theory. This is the cryptically named M-theory, a development which required a total of 11 dimensions.
Tonight's episode opens with a whimsical scene in a movie theatre in which the history of the universe is run backwards to the big bang, the moment at which general relativity and quantum mechanics both come into play - and therefore the point at which our conventional model of reality breaks down.
This short clip from the BBC explores how Einstein unlocked the mysteries of space time, how space time is like a fabric that is
This clip highlights one of the greatest mysteries of the universe - what are Black Holes? What are they made of? In this clip,
Weighing in at up to 4 million times the mass of the Sun, the biggest super massive black holes have the power to rip planets apart and swallow entire stars. Their gravitational pull is so strong that nothing, not even light, can escape. And that's a problem for astronomers, because it means they're entirely invisible to any telescope. Despite these obvious obstacles, the program meets the astronomers attempting to image a black hole for the very first time and the theoretical physicists getting ever closer to unlocking their mysteries.
Could tiny strings vibrating in eleven dimensions be the ultimate explanation for everything? The Theory of Everything - the nuts and bolts of physics - is one of the most ambitious and exciting theories every proposed, and one that eluded even Einstein.
Explanation of the early development of the Linear No-Threshold Model for Radiation Dose.
