## TEDx: Are We Alone?

The Drake equation quantifies the probabilistic argument that gives the approximate number of active extraterrestrial civilizations in our galaxy or the whole Universe. At its original form Drake equation has 7 factors, including the average star formation rate, the fraction of stars that have planets, the number of planets per star and others. Even though […]

## Tedx: Our Unlikely Universe

Dr Harry Cliff is a particle physicist working at Cambridge and the LHC and an in-house physicist at the Science Museum. In this Tedx talk he discusses what he calls “the new Copernican revolution”. By this Cliff refers to the next great goal of the LHC — the search for supersymmetric particles, which will be […]

## TEDx: Living on the Boundary

String theory is one of the most unique and in many ways elegant theories. After all, it’s one of the candidates for the theory of everything. But so what? What influence does research in string theory have for our everyday lives and our society in general? In this Joel Hutchinson aims to answer this question by […]

## TEDx: A Late-Onset Physics Love Story

Emily Costello, age 22, has recently graduated with BsC in physics, however, she is not your ordinary physics student — her path did not always appear to lead to life in science. Throughout her youth she has written music and songs as well as plays and poetry. Art, however, in the eyes of Ms Costello […]

## TEDx: Nature of Mathematics

In this video Michael Randy Gabel discusses the nature of mathematics in terms of such concepts as theory, proof, theorem and conjecture. This is done in the context of modern education in mathematics — Gabel discusses how even a little change in the methods of teaching could highly increase the quality of mathematical education. Finally, […]

## TEDx: The Family Tree of the Universe

Here’s a new TEDx talk by Debbie Bard, a cosmologist and project scientist at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. Bard started her career studying the very smallest things in the cosmos, earning a doctorate in particle physics from the University of Edinburgh and working as a post-doctoral scholar at Imperial College London. Today Bard researches the structure and […]

## TEDx: Einstein and the Monks

In this interesting TEDx talk Chris Impey, a Distinguished Professor and deputy head of the astronomy department at the University of Arizona, talks about his unique experience of teaching the Buddhist monks. Chris Impey spend some time teaching a group of Buddhist monks the basics of physics of space and time. This remarkable experience not only […]

## TEDx: Tamara Davis

It seems like a good time for another TEDx physics talk. This time we have a talk by Tamara Davis, who is an astrophysicists with an interest in gravity, nature of space time and the fundamental laws of physics. In addition Tamara explains how the cosmos itself acts as the most powerful laboratory enabling us […]
