Michio Kaku: The Quantum Revolution ( 58 mins)


Professor Michio Kaku, famous Theoretical Physicist and one of the inventors of Light Cone String Field Theory (one of the Relativistic forms of M-Theory), hosts a documentary on the use of the body of scientific knowledge on quantum mechanics that will lead to "The Quantum Revolution".

In this documentary, Michio Kaku explores the cutting edge of quantum science today, tomorrow, and beyond. He argues that humankind is at a turning point in history. Dr. Kaku's observation of the progress in human knowledge, and our increasing technology to experiment on this knowledge, will mean that in this century, we are going to make the historic transition from the 'Age of Discovery' to the 'Age of Mastery', a period in which we will move from being passive observers of nature to its active choreographers.
This will give us not only unparalleled possibilities but also great responsibilities.

Everything in our world depends on quantum mechanics working at the fundamental levels of atoms and electrons generating chemistry, atomic and nuclear physics that powers our universe and drives the forces that govern our lives and civilization.

By mastering classical physics we invented the industrial world in less than 200 years and by partially understanding the rules of quantum mechanics we have created the technological revolution, seen in the 20th-21st centuries in 60 years which has been accelerating to the point of a complete singularity.

Professor Brian Cox








Wonders of the Universe -

Hosted by physicist Professor Brian Cox


 is a 2011 television series produced by the BBC, Discovery Channel, and Science Channel, hosted by physicist Professor Brian Cox. Wonders of the Universe was first broadcast in the United Kingdom on BBC Two from 6 March 2011. The series comprises four episodes, each of which focuses on an aspect of the universe and features a 'wonder' relevant to the theme. It follows on from Cox's 2010 series for the BBC, Wonders of the Solar System.


Wonders of the Solar System - Series


1. "Empire of the Sun"

The first episode illustrates how the formation and behaviour of the Sun affects each planet in the Solar System. During this episode, Cox visits India to view and explain the workings of a total solar eclipse. The Aurora Borealis is also seen in Norway and an explanation of the power of the Sun occurs in Death Valley, California, USA.


2. "Order Out of Chaos"

Cox starts this episode in Al-Qayrawan, Tunisia to analyse the orbit of the planets around our Sun, with details on how the tilt of the Earth creates the seasons. He also visits the Atlas Mountains and provides an explanation of the how we see the orbit of Mars. This episode also provides an insight on the rings of Saturn and the geysers of Enceladus, including images shown as seen from the Cassini–Huygens space probe.


3. "The Thin Blue Line"

The third episode looks at the atmosphere of the planets and moons of the Solar System, with Earth, Mars, and Titan being the main focus. The episode starts with Cox taking a journey in an English Electric Lightning piloted by "Mike Beachy Head" up to an altitude "between 55 and 60 thousand feet" where the "thinness and fragility" of the atmosphere could be observed in the middle of the day transitioning "from light blue to dark blue to black". Later, the Namib Desert is seen and used to give an explanation on how the Earth keeps its temperature, along with comparisons made to Mars. An in-depth look at Titan is seen with footage shown from the Huygens probe descent down to the surface of the moon.


4. "Dead or Alive"

The fourth episode begins at the Grand Canyon, Arizona, USA, and immediate comparisons are drawn to Mars and the Valles Marineris. A trip to Kīlauea on Hawaii shows the geological activity of Earth, and again a comparison to Mars and Olympus Mons is seen. An analysis of Jupiter's gravitational effect is given with how it could potentially send an asteroid on a collision course with Earth. The same gravitational force is also shown to give the Jovian moon Io geological life.


5. "Aliens"

The final installment covers life surviving in extreme environments, and how the search for life on other worlds follows the search for water, focusing on Mars, and on Jupiter's moon Europa. Cox begins by travelling to the deep ocean to draw comparisons between space travel. The Atacama Desert in South America is also viewed, which is seen to explain the lack of life found there. A trip to the Scablands in North-West America is also made with an explanation of the Missoula Floods that once occurred there, and how it shaped the landscape geologically. More examinations of life come with a trip to Mexico and how life survives in caves.





Wonders of the Universe  ( 1Hr: 54 mins)

it's the precursor to the BBC programs, such as Complete Cosmos



Wonders of the Universe - The 4 part Documentary Series - 2011


1. "Destiny"

In the first episode, Cox considers the nature of time. He explores the cycles of time that define the lives of humans on Earth, and compares them to the cycles of time on a cosmic scale. Cox also discusses the Second Law of Thermodynamics and its effect on time, and the Heat death of the universe. The US broadcast was originally aired on 3 August 2011, and was titled "Cosmos Made Conscious."

2. "Stardust"

In this episode, Cox discusses the elements of which all living things, including humans, are made. He explores the beginnings of the universe and the origins of humanity, going far back in time to look at the process of stellar evolution. He explains how these basic elements are related to the life cycles of the stars and the recycling of matter in the Universe, touching down in Katmandu and Rio de Janeiro. The US broadcast was originally aired on 27 July 2011, and was titled "Children of the Stars."

 3. "Falling"

This episode documents how gravity has an effect across the universe, and how the relatively weak force creates an orbit. We also see how a neutron star's gravity works. Finally, there is a look back at how research on gravity has enabled us to better understand the cosmos. The US broadcast was originally aired on 10 August 2011 and was titled "The Known and the Unknown."

4. "Messengers"

The final episode shows how the unique properties of light provide an insight into the origins and development of mankind and the Universe. Cox demonstrates how the speed of light allows scientists to measure distance and time with a trip in a fighter jet that they use to break the sound barrier. The US broadcast originally aired on 17 August 2011 and was titled "On Beams of Light."

The four episodes were repeated as part of the BBC Learning Zone (intended for use in Secondary Schools) in an early morning slot (5.00 - 6.00 am) on Wednesdays from the end of September 2011 on BBC Two. Each one-hour programme carried a subtitle ("Learning Shorts") and was segmented into 3 continuous short films (of approximately 20 minutes' duration) with separate titles, making 12 in total. The original episode titles were not used.

    1.Time & Entropy
    2.Discovering the Speed of Light
    3.Why are Black Holes Invisible?

Jim Al-Khalili


Jim Al-Khalili OBE (born 20 September 1962) is an Iraqi-born British Theoretical Physicist, author and science communicator. He is currently Professor of Theoretical Physics and Chair in the Public Engagement in Science at the University of Surrey and Vice President of the British Science Association. He has hosted several BBC productions about science and is a frequent commentator about science in other British media, including a lecture on 'Black Holes, Wormholes and Time Machines' for the GCSE Science Live Lecture Series...






The Story of Electricity - BBC  Full Episode ( 55 mins)


BBC - Professor Jim Al-Khalili tells the electrifying story of our quest to master nature's most mysterious force - electricity. Until fairly recently, electricity was seen as a magical power, but it is now the lifeblood  of the modern world and underpins every aspect of our technological advancements.

Without electricity, we would be lost. This series tells of dazzling leaps of imagination and extraordinary experiments - a story of maverick geniuses who used electricity to light our cities, to communicate across the seas and through the air, to create modern industry and to give us the digital revolution.

1. Spark - Episode one (2:56:00   Hrs.)

Episode one tells the story of the very first 'natural philosophers' who started to unlock the mysteries of electricity. They studied its curious link to life, built strange and powerful instruments to create it and even tamed lightning itself. It was these men who truly laid the foundations of the modern world. Electricity was without doubt a fantastical wonder. This is the story about what happened when the first real concerted effort was made to understand electricity; how we learned to create and store it, before finally creating something that enabled us to make it at will - the battery.


2. The Age of Invention - Episode two (0:58:47 mins)

Just under 200 years ago scientists discovered something profound, that electricity is connected to another of nature's most fundamental forces - magnetism. In the second episode, Jim discovers how harnessing the link between magnetism and electricity would completely transform the world, allowing us to generate a seemingly limitless amount of electric power which we could utilise to drive machines, communicate across continents and light our homes. This is the story of how scientists and engineers unlocked the nature of electricity in an extraordinary century of innovation and invention.

3. Revelations and Revolutions - Episode three  (1:57:23 mins)

Electricity is not just something that creates heat and light, it connects the world through networks and broadcasting. After centuries of man's experiments with electricity, the final episode tells the story of how a new age of real understanding dawned - how we discovered electric fields and electromagnetic waves. Today we can hardly imagine life without electricity - it defines our era. As our understanding of it has increased so has our reliance upon it, and today we're on the brink of a new breakthrough, because if we can understand the secret of electrical superconductivity we could once again transform the world.






Limits of Perception full documentary on Science Channel ( 44 mins)

"We are surrounded by mysterious worlds. Worlds hidden from us by their sizes, too small or too large to be noticed. But now it's possible to see these worlds. What's changed our perceptions? Technology; extending our natural senses, taking us on a remarkable journey from our own world through strange parallel worlds down to the smallest and up to the largest elements of creation..."










Athene's Theory of Everything  ( 49 mins)


Athene's 'Theory of Everything' - A new take on neuroscience in relation to quantum physics.




Theory of Everything


A theory of everything (ToE) or final theory is a putative theory of theoretical physics that fully explains and links together all known physical phenomena, and predicts the outcome of any experiment that could be carried out in principle. The term mainly refers to the desire to reconcile the two main successful physical frameworks, general relativity which describes gravity and the large-scale structure of spacetime, and quantum field theory, particularly as implemented in the standard model, which describes the small-scale structure of matter while incorporating the other three non-gravitational forces, the weak, strong and electromagnetic interactions.

A primary stumbling block in the construction of a ToE is that straightforward attempts to apply quantum mechanics to the gravitational field, in the same way as for say the electromagnetic field, fails due to the breakdown of the renormalization procedure. Thus the central issue is how to combine general relativity and quantum mechanics. This is one of the unsolved problems in physics.

Many candidate theories of everything have been proposed by theoretical physicists during the twentieth century, but none have been confirmed experimentally.

Initially, the term 'theory of everything' was used with an ironic connotation to refer to various overgeneralized theories. For example, a great-grandfather of Ijon Tichy — a character from a cycle of Stanisław Lem's science fiction stories of the 1960s — was known to work on the "General Theory of Everything". Physicist John Ellis claims to have introduced the term into the technical literature in an article in Nature in 1986. Over time, the term stuck in popularizations of theoretical physics research.








What Is The World Made Of - The Story Of Science - BBC Documentary (Full)  ( 56 mins)


Here's the amiable academic Michael Moseley again for the second episode of The Story Of Science, dealing with the subject of matter and quantum physics, and the discovery of the very building blocks of life.

The tale begins in the Middle Ages with the alchemists, those quixotic researchers who, the history books tell us, pursued the secret of turning lead into gold. But far from the 'deluded mystics' or snake oil salesmen that popular history depicts them as, the alchemists laid the groundwork for modern, empirical science.

They took the ancient Greek belief that the world was made of fire, air, earth and water, and understood, as we do, that everything in existence can be reduced to simple building blocks, even if their particular choice of building blocks was somewhat wide of the mark.

Pioneering alchemist Henning Brand also believed that gold could be acquired by distilling human urine (they obviously drank a lot of Australian lager in the 17th century). The resulting matter, far from the material Brand was expecting, was, in fact, phosphorus.

With the crudest of equipment and often fumbling around in complete ignorance, the alchemists of the Middle Ages gave rise to the chemists, metallurgists and biologists of the modern age.

While last week's story of astronomy was told via video postcards from across the globe, this week's episode is, by contrast, full of gleeful moments of adolescent chemistry; the flashy, noisy glows and bangs of one of your more memorable science lessons at school. Petrified piddle is transformed into a hypnotically bright incandescent display; the discovery of oxygen is illustrated with slow-motion shots of the gas burning in test tubes.

Provoking interest in science through eye-catching demonstrations is nothing new, of course, as Moseley explains. The 18th century discovery of gases - or airs, as they were then called - led to the invention of the first hot air balloon in France, resulting in hugely popular test flights in front of a rapt populace. ...
