Excellent Series!
13 June 2016 | by GeoPierpontSee all my reviews

This series is extremely well produced in that it piques your interest and maintains curiosity throughout. I thought it would take far longer than the 2 hour lecture, given most tutorials on Quantum Physics are very dry, convoluted or overly dense.

The approach using many real world examples in astronomy, biology, card games, lab experiments provide a constant reminder of how closely many scientific fields are related. The humor is dealt in small measure to keep the conversation light enough for breathing room to further comprehension.

High recommend for even casual viewing and an introspective of the many mysteries of the Universe. Bravo!!!
