View Resource Buckminsterfullerene: C60, the Celestial Sphere that Fell to Earth

In 1985 an experiment, designed to unravel the carbon chemistry in red giant stars, revealed the existence of C60 or buckminsterfullerene (a special form of carbon, known also as bucky balls). This video lecture describes the story of the discovery of this molecule and the way its symmetry relates to the natural and physical world. This elegant hollow cage-like molecule which has the same shape...

View Resource Richard Feynman: The Douglas Robb Memorial Lectures

In this set of video lectures given in 1979 by Nobel prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman, Feynman presents not only a lesson in basic physics but also a deep insight into the approach of the 17th century physicist, Isaac Newton. The first lecture, Photons - Corpuscles of Light, is an introduction to photons and their properties as well as to the theory of quantum electrodynamics and the...

View Resource Self-Assembly: Nature's Way to Do It

Biology operates at two levels: the large scale which we can see and the underlying microscopic one. This video lecture describes how intermolecular forces cause protein arrays to self-assemble, enabling nature to fabricate the large scale components of living systems. The lecturer explains how scale, forces and information cooperate to form complex structures. There are demonstrations of gravity...

View Resource Instructional Science and Engineering Videos

These fun, intelligent, and engaging videos were created by scientist Jonathan Hare to be used in schools, workshops, and in home-study with accompanying information. On the site, visitors can make their way through 25 short films that explore the worlds of infrared photography, light beams, parabolic light collectors, generators, and seawater batteries. The videos are about five minutes long,...

View Resource The Chemistry of Interstellar Space

This video lecture explores the chemistry of the hordes of molecules in the interstellar medium revealed by radioastronomical observations of our galaxy. Extremely fast reactions result in the high abundance of complex organic compounds in the space between the stars. The chemistry of the interstellar medium illustrates that complex synthesis occurs under totally abiotic conditions. The specific...
