Minutephysics: cool physics and other sweet science. On Youtube.

I'm constantly in awe at the world. Isn't it spectacular? I like physics (and science in general) because the rules of physics, chemistry and biology apply regardless of opinion polls of scientists or the public. The goal of science is to find out how the world (universe, nature, etc) works by careful observation. It doesn't matter at all if you believe in a theory or not - what matters is whether nature works that way. A lot of popular ideas (for example, "the earth is flat") turned out to be wrong, and a lot of uncomfortable ideas (like quantum mechanics and plate tectonics) turned out to be right. It's a dictatorship – nature decides how nature works, and you get no vote! But you get to decide which questions to ask - and that's what makes science fun.
