The first rocket scientist – Robert Goddard

Rockets existed long before Robert Goddard, but they weren’t powerful enough to get to space. We began to understand why around the turn of the 20th century. First, Russian physicist Konstantin Tsiolkovsky defined the physics of a rocket that could get to space. Then Robert Goddard, set out to actually build it. Goddard meticulously studied […]

First-ever image of black hole captured by team of Harvard scientists and astronomers

The Event Horizon Telescope is a project that we’ve been working on for many many years to take the first picture of a black hole and we’ve done it. It seems impossible: how do you take a picture of something that’s shrouded by nature’s ultimate cloaking device? What happens is the black hole’s gravity is […]

Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity | Lecture 1

[music playing] This program is brought to you by Stanford University. Please visit us at Stanford.edu. Leonard Susskind: Gravity. Gravity is a rather special force. It’s unusual. It has difference in electrical forces, magnetic forces, and it’s connected in some way with geometric properties of space, space and time. But– and that connection is, of […]

Gravitation: The Four Fundamental Forces of Physics #3

Welcome Back to our series on the four fundamental forces of physics. Today we are talking about gravitation, the force that you and I probably have the closest working relationship with. But it’s not only what sticks you to the ground, and makes you fall down, it also explains how stars and galaxies form, and […]

Scientists Believe That North Will Become South And Vice Versa

We humans like to think that we know about and can control everything that happens on our planet. And how’s that working for us? Yeah, control over the elements is far from the truth. Because right now, somewhere above our heads, in addition to Climate Change, the Earth’s magnetic field keeps weakening at an alarming […]

The science of expansion: Andromeda, gravity, and the ‘Big Rip’ | Michelle Thaller

One of the questions I get asked most commonly as an astronomer is if almost all the galaxies in the universe are flying away from us in space, why is the Andromeda Galaxy getting closer to us? Does that somehow mean that the Big Bang works differently in different parts of the universe? And the […]
