Cosmology, Physics

Amazing documentary hosted by Stephen Hawking asking the key question so many people have wondered since the beginning of mankind, does a "god" or a "celestial dictator" exist??

The first of three programs in which nuclear physicist Professor Jim Al-Khalili tells the story of the greatest scientific discovery ever - that everything is made of atoms.

As scientists delved deep into the atom, into the very heart of matter, they unraveled nature's most shocking secrets. They had to abandon everything they believed in and create a whole new science, which today underpins the whole of physics, chemistry, biology and maybe even life itself.

What is cold? How do you achieve it, and how cold can it get? - http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/

Physics and marketing don't seem to have much in common, but Dan Cobley is passionate about both. He brings these unlikely bedfellows together using Newton's second law, Heisenberg's uncertainty principle, the scientific method and the second law of thermodynamics to explain the fundamental theories of branding.

In two mind-blowing hours, Hawking reveals the wonders of the cosmos to a new generation. Delve into the mind of the world's most famous living scientist and reveal the splendor and majesty of the universe as never seen before. See how the universe began, how it creates stars, black holes and life - and how everything will end.

The 19-year-old Hubble Space Telescope has yielded stunning images and a remarkable scientific legacy -- revealing new insight into the age of the universe, black holes and the role of "dark energy" in our expanding universe. University of Washington alum Gregory Johnson piloted the space shuttle Atlantis for the final service mission to Hubble. Imagine the extreme challenges of launching the shuttle 358 miles into space, capturing the huge telescope and making tricky repairs during five spacewalks. Johnson takes us on a thrilling journey into space and inside the final mission to Hubble.

Step into the stars in this video from the National Science Foundation with David Charbonneau, associate professor of astronomy at Harvard University. Charbonneau, recipient of NSFs 2009 Alan T. Waterman Award, shares his research on the detection and characterization of extra-solar planets, known as exoplanets.

'I KNOW WHAT I SAW' is a documentary guaranteed to change the way we see the universe.

Stephen Hawking gives us the ultimate guide to the universe, a ripping yarn based on real science, spanning the whole of space and time - from the nature of the universe itself, to the chances of alien life, and the real possibility of time travel.

How solar eruptions could threaten our society.
Watch in 1080p as massive solar eruptions take aim at our high-tech society. 93 million miles away... an angry sun vents its rage. Dark regions, called sunspots, appeared unexpectedly on its surface... a sign of rising tension within. It had been three and a half years since the sun last erupted in fury...at the peak of an 11-year cycle of solar flare-ups.
