  • How We Might Be Living In Other Dimensions Without Knowing - A Neil deGrasse Tyson Visualization

    3:45

    In a 2017 interview, Neil deGrasse Tyson provides an incredible visual illustration to the concept of multidimensional phenomena. In which, he compares our inability to comprehend beyond the third dimension to that of an ant being incapable of understanding that something is placed above it. Truly fascinating to consider the limits of consciousness and what might lie beyond it. We found this so compelling, we decided to make a short film to help further visually demonstrate his beautiful explanation.

    This video is transformative in nature and is intended for educational purposes. Therefore, it falls under fair use.

  • The Multiverse Hypothesis Explained by Neil deGrasse Tyson

    10:03

    The multiverse hypothesis or theory holds that a group of multiple universes (possibly infinite universes) comprise everything that exists: The entirety of space, time, matter, energy, information, and the physical laws and constants that describe them. The renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson explains in detail the multiverse hypothesis.

    However, prominent physicists are divided about whether any other universes exist outside of our own. Some even go as far as to say that the multiverse is not a legitimate topic of scientific inquiry. Because it can not be empirically falsified. But Neil deGrasse Tyson among other prominent cosmologists, thinks that given our understanding of quantum mechanics and the theory of General relativity, the possibility of the existence of the multiverse is a legitimate scientific hypothesis.

    Steven Weinberg said that if the multiverse existed, the hope of finding a rational explanation for the precise values of quark masses and other constants of the standard model that we observe in our Big Bang is doomed, for their values would be an accident of the particular part of the multiverse in which we live.

    Some scientists analyzed the data from the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe, an uncrewed spacecraft operating from 2001 to 2010 that measured temperature differences across the sky in the cosmic microwave background, the radiant heat remaining from the Big Bang, and claimed they found evidence suggesting that our universe collided with other parallel universes in the distant past.

    However, a more thorough data analysis from the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe and from the Planck Satellite, a space observatory operated by the European Space Agency from 2009 to 2013, which mapped the anisotropies of the cosmic microwave background, did not find any statistically significant evidence of universe collisions. there was no evidence of any gravitational pull of other universes on ours either. And to add insult to injury to the proponents that the multiverse hypothesis has been backed up by statistical evidence, the Planck satellite, has a resolution three times higher than the WMA Probe.


    Our brains are not evolutionarily equipped to intuitively understand quantum mechanics and large scale cosmic phenomena. But Neil deGrasse Tyson with his usual wits explains the multiverse hypothesis in layman's terms.

    9:37

    Talking about multiverse has become mainstream. Many physicists seem to agree that there is more than one universe, but we don’t know what they look like or how to travel from one dimension to the other. For Michio Kaku this can be accomplished through wormholes. He talks about this possibility during his virtual tours about his latest book “The God Equation”. During one of these live presentations, he talked about the multi-universe and the role of black holes. Here are the highlights.

  • Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains The Weirdness of Quantum Physics

    10:24

    Quantum mechanics is the area of physics that deals with the behaviour of atoms and particles on microscopic scales. Since its inception, the many counter-intuitive aspects and results of quantum mechanics have provoked strong philosophical debates and many interpretations.

    Neil deGrasse Tyson explains quantum physics in a way that is understandable even for the lay person. In Quantum Mechanics there is no such thing as absolute certainty when looking for something. This phenomenon is known as Uncertainty Principle and was Introduced first in 1927 by the German physicist Werner Heisenberg. Heisenberg realized that one implication of quantum physics is that the act of measurement always disturbs the object measured.

    Neil deGrasse Tyson explains that the whole computer world is based on the principle of Quantum Physics. We are able to manipulate the electrical properties of silicon only because we can study the wave nature of electrons.

    Our daily routines are often governed by technology that is directly related to Quantum Physics, thus our lives rest upon these fundamental scientific discoveries.

    Another hard concept to grasp is Quantum entanglement. Einstein referred to it as spooky action at a distance. It occurs when a pair or group of particles is generated, interact, or share spatial proximity in a way such that the quantum state of each particle of the pair or group cannot be described independently of the state of the others. But Neil deGrasse Tyson and Lawrence Krauss explain this concept with everyday life examples which makes it a little bit easier to understand.

    As Neil deGrasse Tyson points out, the first quantum phenomena were observed more than a century ago. However scientists are still learning about this realm of our universe.

  • 11 Dimensions Explained - Higher Dimensions Explained - All Dimensions Explained

    23:53

    All 11 dimensions are explained in this video one by one. The video includes- what are dimensions, how many dimensions are there in the universe according to different theories, how we can visualize higher dimensions and what is the geometrical structure of higher dimensions.
    In this Video I will also explain why we are not able to perceive higher dimensions although we might be living in higher dimensions unknowingly and what supernatural powers a being of higher dimensions would possess. So most of your questions related to dimensions will be answered in this video.

    What we mean by dimensions?
    Dimension of a point is defined as the minimum number of coordinates that are needed to specify that point in it.

    How many dimensions are there in the universe?
    According to classical physics there are 3 dimensions of space; length, breadth and height and one dimension is of time. String theory requires 10 dimensions but as per M theory total no. of dimensions are 11. In Bosonic string theory spacetime is 26 dimensional.

    Why we are not able to perceive higher dimensions?
    Actually We might be living in higher dimensions without being aware of it. But because of the limitations of our brain and senses we may not be able to perceive them.
    According to some researches extra dimensions may be curled up at extremely small scales. This scale is so small that we can not see them with our experiments based on current technologies.

    11 Dimensions Explained:-

    0th dimension-
    There is no length, no breadth and no height of an object in the zeroth dimension. Example of zeroth dimension is a point.

    1st dimension
    An object in first dimension has only one dimension i.e. length. A straight line is an example of first dimensional object. We can get straight line by joining two points.

    2nd Dimension (2D)
    Second dimensional objects also known as two dimensional or 2D objects are flat shapes. Some common examples of two dimensional shapes are squares and triangles.

    3rd dimension (3D)
    On adding one more dimension to 2 dimensional objects we enter into the world of three dimensions. This third dimension is of height. Therefore to represent three dimensional or 3D objects we need three coordinates length, breadth and height. Three dimensional objects are solid objects and therefore have non zero volume.

    4th dimension
    Time is considered the fourth dimension. A four Dimensional being can move freely in time dimension. It would have full control over time. He would be able to move in any desired direction in time; past or future.
    But if we consider the fourth dimension from the geometrical point of view then hypercube is a 4 dimensional object. It is also called a tesseract. The relationship between a hypercube and a cube is same as that of cube and square. So in simple terms a hypercube or tesseract is four dimensional analog of the cube.

    5th dimension
    A person living in 5th dimension can control time in different ways. A fifth dimensional being can move either in past or future as per his wish. He would have all the powers that are possessed by a fourth dimensional being. But he would also be able to be present at different locations at the same time. It would also be possible for him to do many jobs and have different hobbies simultaneously.

    6th dimension (Sixth Dimension)
    A six dimensional being has all the powers that a person living in 5th dimension has along with some extra capabilities. But one limitation of the sixth dimension is that all the parallel universes must have the same beginning (initial conditions) that is the Big Bang.

    7th dimension (Seventh Dimension)
    Seventh dimension can have infinite number of universes. A seventh dimensional being can have infinite forms of itself and can move from one universe to any other universe. The 7th dimensional universes may have originated from different start conditions.

    8th dimension (Eighth Dimension)
    The eighth dimension has a plane of all the possible presents, pasts and futures for all the infinite number of parallel universes and all these infinite universes extend up to infinity.

    9th dimension (Ninth Dimension)
    Infinite number of universes exist in the ninth dimension. It is possible for the universes in the ninth dimension to have their own laws of Physics and separate conditions and probabilities of their origin.

    10th dimension (Tenth dimension)
    The 10th dimensional being would have infinite powers. He would be able to do the things that are beyond your imagination. He would be able to control even the spacetime and everything present in all the infinite number of universes.

    11th dimension (Eleventh dimension)
    Many unanswered questions were arised when the superstring theory was introduced. Therefore to answer these questions, eleventh dimension was proposed by the researchers.
    According to superstring theory, everything in the universe is made up of one dimensional and infinitely small vibrating loops called strings.

  • StarTalk Podcast: Cosmic Queries – Edge of the Universe with Neil deGrasse Tyson and Janna Levin

    53:26

    What’s beyond the edge of the universe? Is there even an edge at all? On this episode of StarTalk Radio, Neil deGrasse Tyson answers your fan-submitted questions about the mysteries, wonders, and theories that exist on the bleeding edge of cosmology. But in order to explore the true depths of the unknown we need to bring in a little extra help – enter astrophysicist Janna Levin, PhD.

    We start with the basics: is the universe infinite? Janna tells us why we’re still uncertain. We explore the idea of the multiverse and the idea of our universe never having an “edge.” Could those distant galaxies we see be our own galaxy in the past? As if that’s not mind-bending enough, we haven’t even gotten to the dimensionality questions yet.

    Find out more about other possible dimensions. We discuss why it’s so difficult to detect other dimensions, if they’re even there in the first place. Janna and Neil help us visualize a 4th dimension. You’ll hear why adding another dimension might provide too much freedom for molecules to bind together and create macroscopic things. We also explore the idea that our three dimensions are glued to a membrane that’s floating in a higher dimensional space. We reflect on Monsters, Inc. and how the film plays with moving through different dimensions.

    Discover more about the shape of our universe. Could it be in the shape of a loop? We break down the Big Bang and the birth of the universe. Find out more about dark matter, dark energy, and if they’re two sides of the same coin. Janna explains why dark energy should be thought of as an invisible ocean. Investigate the “information” that lies on the surface of a black hole. We track Voyager 2’s journey into interstellar space and what that means for us back on Earth. All that, plus, Janna shares why she thinks the study of dark matter and dark energy are the most important fields of study in science today.

  • We Might Be Living in Higher Dimensions Unknowingly - Are We Living in Higher Dimensions- Hyperspace

    8:08

    Have you ever thought that we might be living in higher dimensions without being aware of it? So are we really living in higher dimensions or hyperspace? We may not be able to perceive higher dimensions because of the limitations of our senses and also the limitations of our brain.
    To support my idea let me give you few analogies and examples...
    As we know we have five senses in our body. We use these five senses to collect information from our surroundings. Using different senses we can see, hear, smell, taste or touch the outer world.
    The information gathered by the senses is processed by our brain and we get some useful information from this raw data.
    You can think of the senses of our body as the sensors used in measuring instruments and our brain as the processing unit of random and raw information.
    We have two cameras in the form of eyes to see the outer world, two sound sensors (ears) for hearing the surrounding sounds. Our skin acts as the touch sensor that we use to feel the outer world. We can sense hardness, softness, humidity and temperature of the surrounding things.
    In the same way we also have sensors for smell and taste in the form of our nose and tongue respectively.
    we have other sensors in our body like pressure sensors, pain sensors, color sensors, orientation or balancing sensors, motion sensors, various chemical sensors, radiation sensors and many more.
    But what I want to let you know is; that all the sensors that our body has; have their own limitations.
    They have their working ranges. Out of this range they can not work, just like any measuring instrument.
    For example- Human visual sensors that is our eyes, can see only in the visible spectrum range of the Electromagnetic wave spectrum.
    Our visual sensors are not capable to perceive the world that contains other lower frequencies like infrared, microwaves or radio waves and also the higher frequencies like ultraviolet, x rays or gamma rays.
    If someone strongly believes only on what his or her eyes see, then it does not mean that the world that he can not see, doesn't exist. A hidden world with much larger range of frequencies still exists, whether humans eyes can perceive it or not, doesn't matter. This is simply the limitation of our visual senses.
    But we can still detect and see these frequencies with the help of our scientific instruments. Some animals like snakes can sense the lower frequencies of the infrared radiation just like an infrared camera.
    In the same way bats can hear ultrasonic sounds that are impossible to hear for our hearing sensors. We can hear only within the range of 20 Hz to 20kHz. But bats can hear well up to 113kHz.
    So it may actually be possible that we are already living in a universe of higher dimensions but because of the limitations of our senses and our intelligence, we are incapable of perceiving the higher dimensions.
    But why we cannot perceive the higher dimensions?
    Actually higher dimensions are curled in on themselves in a process known as compactification.
    So we can only perceive three dimensions of space called as length, breadth and height and one dimension of time where we can move only in the forward direction.
    Now I will explain with the help of an example, how we will find higher dimensions on changing our viewing reference frame and on going into microscopic level.
    Suppose there is a rope tied between two rocks and you are looking at it from a distance. From your frame of reference, the rope is one dimensional (length). But now imagine, there is an ant crawling onto the rope. It can definitely see at least two dimensions. The ant can move not only along the length of the rope but also along its thickness. It can also see the roughness and grooves of the rope. So from the ant's reference frame, the rope is not just one dimensional as it can see other dimensions too.
    Now if we enter into the rope for more details, at the Microscopic level of atoms, then we will find that from the reference frame of tiny atoms the rope is three dimensional. It has large number of atoms arranged in a 3D pattern and each having solid nucleus and electrons that revolve around it in 3 dimensional space.
    On going further at extremely small level we will enter into the world of strings. These strings vibrate in 11 dimensions. According to the string theory, everything in this universe is made up of tiny vibrating loops known as strings. Vibrations of the strings are responsible for the mass and other properties of a matter.
    Hence we have seen that a simple rope may appear one dimensional for you from some distance, two dimensional to an ant, three dimensional at the atomic level and even 11 dimensional at the level of strings. All depends on the frame of reference and at what microscopic level we are observing.
    So it will not we wrong to say that we might be living in a world of higher dimensions unknowingly. For this, we can blame our limited intelligence and limitations of our senses.

  • Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains Nothing

    13:45

    In this StarTalk video, we’re talking about nothing. Not in the Seinfeldian sense, but in the science sense. What is nothing? Neil explains how our usual definition of something being “nothing” is dictated by our senses.

    What if you wanted to get all the way down to true nothing? Well, even when there’s nothing, there’s air molecules, and a lot of them. So, what happens when you take out the air molecules? Find out just how much air molecules permeate in our environment, in our solar system, in interstellar space, and intergalactic space.

    Then, just when you think you truly have nothing, you’ll hear how quantum physics comes into play. Discover more about virtual particles and why the best “nothing” you could have is filled with virtual particles. All that, plus, we debate if being able to describe something that is nothing makes it something.

  • The Pluto Files | Neil deGrasse Tyson | Talks at Google

    1:12:42

    The Authors@Google program welcomed Neil deGrasse Tyson to Google's New York office to discuss his book, The Pluto Files.

    About the Book:

    The New York Times best-selling author chronicles America's irrational love affair with Pluto, man's best celestial friend.

    In August 2006, the International Astronomical Union voted Pluto out of planethood. Far from the sun, tiny, and eccentric in orbit, it's a wonder Pluto has any fans. Yet during the mounting debate over Pluto's status, Americans rallied behind the extraterrestrial underdog. The year of Pluto's discovery, Disney created an irresistible pup by the same name, and, as one NASA scientist put it, Pluto was discovered by an American for America. Pluto is entrenched in our cultural, patriotic view of the cosmos, and
    Neil deGrasse Tyson is on a quest to discover why.

    Only Tyson can tell this story: he was involved in the first exhibits to demote Pluto, and, consequently, Pluto lovers have freely shared their opinions with him, including endless hate mail from third graders. In his typically witty way, Tyson explores the history of planet classification and America's obsession with the planet that's recently been judged a dwarf.

    This event took place on February 9, 2009.

  • StarTalk @ NY Comic Con: It’s About Time!

    1:9:26

    Time is of the essence! Or, is it? Is time travel possible? Can we change the past? On this episode of StarTalk Radio, Neil deGrasse Tyson explores the wibbly wobbly, timey wimey nature of time itself with theoretical physicist Brian Greene, comic co-host Chuck Nice, and Impractical Joker James “Murr” Murray (@thetenderloins).

    Join us on a pop culture adventure, from the TARDIS of Doctor Who, to the shrinking capabilities of Ant Man and the Wasp, to the Upside Down parallel universe of Stranger Things. Explore if the laws of physics allow time travel to be possible. You’ll learn how the physics of time travel differs depending on whether you’re going into the future or the past. We discuss wormholes and what happens when you place a wormhole next to a black hole.

    Find out about the “chronology projection conjecture,” a concept first introduced by Steven Hawking. Ponder the logic paradox that occurs when you travel into the past. You’ll find out if other species process time similar to the way humans do. We also venture into the fourth dimension as we explore the TARDIS and it’s capabilities.

    Next, we move from time travel to the Quantum Realm as we discuss the shrinking science of Ant Man and the Wasp. You’ll learn what the laws of physics say about shrinking. Discover more about the empty space inside atoms. Investigate “molecular disequilibrium,” quantum entanglement, and what Einstein called the “spooky action.”

    Neil gives praise to the movie A Bug’s Life on its ability to represent the microscopic (besides the obvious error in ant anatomy).

    Lastly, we take a trip to the Upside Down as we investigate parallel universes. Find out more about string theory and the “brane” idea. Explore the idea of a “gravity phone” used to send out vibrations in space time rather than vibrations through air. Unlock the possibilities of the Many-Worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics and learn more about the “order of infinites.” All that, plus Neil offers an emotional, poignant happy birthday message to his birthday buddy, NASA.

  • The Mysterious Force of Gravity Explained by Neil deGrasse Tyson

    10:02

    Of the 4 fundamental forces of nature, gravity is the most intuitive one. We experience gravity every second of our lives so it makes sense that our brains are evolutionarily equipped to intuitively grasp the effects of gravity. At least here on Earth.

    Neil deGrasse Tyson explains what gravity is and how this mysterious force works and effects the fabric of space time. And why it effects the very nature of the universe itself. And if the question Why is even a good scientific question.

    Neil deGrasse Tyson mentions that scientifically speaking, we pretty much understand how gravity works and that is good enough to make scientific progress and questions like why does gravity work belong to set of philosophical questions that are not necessarily useful.

    So what is gravity exactly?

    Gravity is a natural phenomenon by which all things with mass or energy including planets, stars, galaxies, and even light gravitate toward one another.

    Modern work on gravitational theory began with the work of Galileo Galilei in the late 16th and early 17th centuries. In his famous experiment dropping balls from the Tower of Pisa, and later with careful measurements of balls rolling down inclines, Galileo showed that gravitational acceleration is the same for all objects. This contradicted Aristotle's belief that heavier objects have a higher gravitational acceleration. Galileo postulated air resistance as the reason that objects with low density and a high surface area fall more slowly in an atmosphere. Galileo's work set the stage for the formulation of Newton's theory of gravity.

    In 1687, Sir Isaac Newton published Principia, which hypothesizes the inverse-square law of universal gravitation. Newton's theory enjoyed its greatest success when it was used to predict the existence of Neptune based on motions of Uranus that could not be accounted for by the actions of the other planets.

    However a discrepancy in Mercury's orbit pointed out flaws in Newton's theory.

    The issue was resolved in 1915 by Albert Einstein's new theory of general relativity, which accounted for the small discrepancy in Mercury's orbit.

    In general relativity, gravity is described by the geometry of spacetime and the laws of physics. According to general relativity, gravity is not a force but instead is caused by the curvature of space–time caused by matter.

    Neil deGrasse Tyson give everyday examples to better understand how gravity works meaning how the very fabric of spacetime is curved by matter. In a nutshell: Space tells matter how to move and matter tells space how to curve.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson joins us to talk about one of our favorite subjects: space.

    In the three-chaptered video, Tyson speaks about the search for alien life inside and outside of the Goldilocks Zone, why the term dark matter should really be called dark gravity, and how the rotation of the Earth may have been the deciding factor in a football game.

    These fascinating space facts, as well as others shared in Tyson's books, make it easier for everyone to grasp complex ideas that are literally out of this world.

    NEIL DEGRASSE TYSON:

    Neil deGrasse Tyson was born and raised in New York City where he was educated in the public schools clear through his graduation from the Bronx High School of Science. Tyson went on to earn his BA in Physics from Harvard and his PhD in Astrophysics from Columbia. He is the first occupant of the Frederick P. Rose Directorship of the Hayden Planetarium. His professional research interests are broad, but include star formation, exploding stars, dwarf galaxies, and the structure of our Milky Way. Tyson obtains his data from the Hubble Space Telescope, as well as from telescopes in California, New Mexico, Arizona, and in the Andes Mountains of Chile.Tyson is the recipient of nine honorary doctorates and the NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal. His contributions to the public appreciation of the cosmos have been recognized by the International Astronomical Union in their official naming of asteroid 13123 Tyson.

    Tyson's new book is Astrophysics for People in a Hurry, you can check it at
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    TRANSCRIPT:

    NEIL DEGRASSE TYSON: When we think of places you might find life we typically think of the Goldilocks Zone around the star where water would be liquid in its natural state. And if you get a little too close to the star, heat would evaporate the water and you don't have it anymore. It's gone. Too far away it would freeze and neither of those states of H2O are useful to life as we know it. We need liquid water. So you can establish this Green Zone, this habitable zone, this Goldilocks Zone, where if you find a planet orbiting there hey, good chance it could have liquid water. Let's look there first for life as we know it.

    Now it turns out that this source of heat, of course is traceable to the sun and if you go farther out everything water should be frozen, all other things being equal. But Europa, a moon of Jupiter sitting well outside of the Goldilocks Zone is kept warm not from energy sources traceable to the Sun, but from what we call the tidal forces of Jupiter itself. So, Jupiter and surrounding moons are actually pumping energy into Europa. And how does it do that? As Europa orbits Jupiter its shape changes. It's not fundamentally different from tides rising and falling on Earth. The shape of the water system of the Earth is responding to tidal forces of the moon. And when you do that to a solid object, the solid object is stressing. And because of this, a consequence of this is that you are pumping energy into the object. It is no different from when you say to anyone who's familiar with racquet sports, indoor racquet sports. It could be racquetball or squash. You say let's arm up the ball before we start playing.

    You want to hit it around a few times. You are literally warming up the ball. It's not just simply let's get loose. You are literally warming up the ball. How? You are distorting it every time you smack it and then the resilience of the ball pops it back into shape and every time you do that, every smack, you're pumping energy into the ball. It's not fundamentally different from what's going on in orbit around Jupiter. So, you have this frozen world, Europa, completely frozen on its surface but you look at the surface and there are cracks in the ice. There are ridges in the ice where there's a crack and it shifted and then refroze. So this ridge has a discontinuity in the crack and it continues in another place. So what this tells you is that Europe cannot be completely frozen because if it were nothing would be moving. You look at the surface of Europa, the frozen surface, there are like ice chunks that are shifted and refrozen and shifted again. It looks just like if you fly over the Arctic Ocean.

    Fly over the Arctic Ocean in the winter...

  • Is Time Travel Possible? - The Science of Time With Neil deGrasse Tyson

    10:08

    Whether time travel is possible is among the most intriguing questions in all of science. Neil deGrasse Tyson explains how time travel into the future is possible through Einstein's general relativity theory.

    Time travel is a widely recognized concept in philosophy and science fiction. But is it truly possible in real life? What does physics tell us about time travel? Is it possible to travel to the past? There are some physical theories that can help us learn what time travel is and how it works. Neil deGrasse Tyson explains the nature of time and the conundrums of time travel.

    In Einstein's theory of special relativity time slows down or speeds up depending on how fast you move relative to something else. So, for an observer in an inertial frame of reference, a clock that is moving relative to them will be measured to tick slower than a clock that is at rest in their frame of reference. This case is sometimes called special relativistic time dilation. Time dilation may also be regarded in a limited sense as time travel into the future. The faster the relative velocity, the greater the time dilation between one another, with the rate of time reaching zero as one approaches the speed of light.

    While some physicists argue whether time travel is possible, theoretical physicist Carlo Rovelli thinks that time is in fact illusion and our reality is just a complex network of events onto which we project sequences of past, present and future.

    Neil deGrasse Tyson is quite possibly the most famous astrophysicist if not the most famous scientist of our time. He is a science communicator and author and he explains in layman's terms whether time travel is actually possible. Neil deGrasse Tyson has written numerous scientific books, his latest is Letters from an Astrophysicist.

    Black holes may hold the key to understanding the most fundamental truths of the universe, but how do you see something that’s, well, black? Astronomers think they have the answer. Thanks to a global array of radio telescopes that turn the Earth into a giant receiver, we may soon have the first picture of the event horizon of Sagittarius A*, the black hole at the center of the Milky Way galaxy. And, with the power of math, scientists are going even further, using equations to “look” inside black holes, peering at the central singularity where general relativity and quantum mechanics collide. Join Brian Greene and other leading physicists and astronomers on a journey to make darkness visible.

    Join Big Think Edge for exclusive videos:
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    OVERVIEW:

    In a profoundly informative and deeply optimistic discussion, Professor Michio Kaku delivers a glimpse of where science will take us in the next hundred years, as warp drives, teleportation, inter-dimensional wormholes, and even time travel converge with our scientific understanding of physical reality. While firing up our imaginations about the future, he also presents a succinct history of physics to the present.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    MICHIO KAKU:

    Dr. Michio Kaku is the co-founder of string field theory, and is one of the most widely recognized scientists in the world today. He has written 4 New York Times Best Sellers, is the science correspondent for CBS This Morning and has hosted numerous science specials for BBC-TV, the Discovery/Science Channel. His radio show broadcasts to 100 radio stations every week. Dr. Kaku holds the Henry Semat Chair and Professorship in theoretical physics at the City College of New York (CUNY), where he has taught for over 25 years. He has also been a visiting professor at the Institute for Advanced Study as well as New York University (NYU).
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    TRANSCRIPT:

    My name is Professor Michio Kaku. I’m a professor of theoretical physics at the City University of New York and I specialize in something called string theory. I’m a physicist.
    Some people ask me the question, “What has physics done for me lately? I mean, do I get better color television, do I get better internet reception with physics?” And the answer is yes. You see, physics is at the very foundation of matter and energy. We physicists invented the laser beam, we invented the transistor. We helped to create the first computer. We helped to construct the internet. We wrote the World Wide Web. In addition, we also helped to invent television, radio, radar, microwaves, not to mention MRI scans, PET scans, x-rays. In other words, almost everything you see in your living room, almost everything you see in a modern hospital, at some point or other, can be traced to a physicist.

    Now, I got interested in physics when I was a child. When I was a child of eight, something happened to me that changed my life and I wanted to be part of this grand search for a theory of everything. When I was eight, a great scientist had just died. I still remember my elementary school teacher coming into the...

  • StarTalk Podcast: Cosmic Queries – The Random Edition, with Neil deGrasse Tyson

    51:57

    Thanks to Wix for sponsoring this video! Create your website now:

    It’s time for another episode of Cosmic Queries, where your own personal astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson answers, sight unseen, fan submitted questions chosen by his co-host. This week, Chuck Nice asks Neil questions on a wide variety of topics that we couldn’t answer in other episodes, from alien plant life, to colonizing Mars, to whether velocity could be considered a dimension.

    You’ll find out if the constellations would look different from Saturn, whether there’s a north pole to our universe, and why astronomers got the Mily Way’s north pole wrong in the first place. Discover why a stable black hole can’t exist inside a star, and how the expansion of our Sun will affect the Earth. You’ll learn how scientists knew to leave gaps in the periodic table of the elements, and why the moon is spiraling away from the Earth at 5 inches a year. Neil speculates on what the bright spot on the dwarf planet Ceres might be, whether we’ll explore Jupiter’s moon Europa in our lifetimes, and if we’ll find life in its subsurface ocean.

    You’ll also hear how NASA inventions led to grooved highway pavement and safer, cheaper LASIK surgery. On the lighter side, Neil and Chuck talk about Neil’s famous vests, the Ship of the Imagination from COSMOS: A Spacetime Odyssey, YouTube’s famous “Double Rainbow Guy,” and the wrestling move Neil always wanted to invent which he calls the “Double Tidal Lock.”

    This episode originally aired on August 26, 2016.

  • Lisa Randall. How Physics Scales the Universe

    58:47

    Quantum theories help us to understand a reality that is hidden from our senses, but which affects our daily lives more than we can imagine. Lisa Randall is one of the most important female scientists of our time, author of seminal works that have contributed to our understanding of the universe (or universes) that we live in, such as Warped Passages (2011), Knocking on Heaven’s Door (2013) and Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs (2016). Lisa Randall is at K19 to explain how physics influences us at different levels and how we conceive the universe.

    This lecture took place at Kosmopolis 2019 (CCCB, 24 March 2019).
