The Spooky Universe

Lecture no. 2 from the course: The Inexplicable Universe: Unsolved Mysteries

The Spooky Universe

Taught by Professor Neil deGrasse Tyson | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Did you know that electrons, discovered in 1897, have never actually been observed by scientists? Or that quarks can only be studied in pairs? Or that as you travel faster or find yourself in a higher gravity, time ticks more slowly for you? Delve into these and other mind-warping facts and insights about the fundamentals of matter in a lecture that covers everything from particle physics to quantum tunneling to thermonuclear fusion.
