Isaac Asimov - The Foundation Trilogy (a BBC radio adaptation, 1973)

Video is not for profit. [Radio Drama] Each part is time stamped below. Source to audio files/Internet Archive (public domain): http://archive.org/details/IsaacAsimov-TheFoundationTrilogy Foundations, Foundation and Empire, & Second Foundation. PART 1) 0:00 Psychohistory and Encyclopedia: "The opening episode begins on Trantor, capital of the Galactic Empire, with the meeting of Hari Seldon and Hal Dornick, their trial, and their exile to Terminus. The action then jumps forward fifty years, to the first Seldon Crisis, where the repercussions of the recent independence of the Four Kingdoms of the Periphery are being felt on Terminus, and are handled by the first Mayor, Salvor Hardin." PART 2) 1:00:13 The Mayors: "The scene moves forward a further twenty years, as Mayor Hardin faces down the domination of the nearby and most powerful of the Four Kingdoms, Anacreon, whose ruler intends to annex the Foundation by force." PART 3) 1:56:15 The Merchant Princes: "A hundred and fifty years after the Foundation was established, the now powerful trading nation, guided by master trader Hober Mallow, faces its greatest threat to date." PART 4) 2:54:14 The General: "Two hundred years after its creation, the Foundation battles Bel Riose, the last powerful General of the dying Galactic Empire. PART 5) 3:49:47 The Mule: "A further hundred years have passed, and the Foundation is challenged by an unexpected threat named The Mule." PART 6) 4:49:32 Flight From The Mule: "During the war against The Mule, with things going badly for the Foundation, some key figures under the leadership of the Foundation's greatest scientist, Ebling Mis, flee Terminus in search of the Second Foundation, to warn it of the danger from The Mule." PART 7) 5:50:04 The Mule Finds: "The Mule attempts to find and overthrow the Second Foundation." PART 8) 6:50:34 Star's End: "Sixty years later a teenage girl is at the center of the Foundation's renewed search for the Second Foundation." "The premise of the series is that mathematician Hari Seldon spent his life developing a branch of mathematics known as psychohistory, a concept devised by Asimov and his editor John W. Campbell. Using the law of mass action, it can predict the future, but only on a large scale; it is error-prone for anything smaller than a planet or an empire. It works on the principle that the behavior of a mass of people is predictable if the quantity of this mass is very large (equal to the population of the galaxy). The larger the mass, the more predictable is the future. Using these techniques, Seldon foresees the fall of the Galactic Empire, which encompasses the entire Milky Way, and a dark age lasting thirty thousand years before a second great empire arises. To shorten the period of barbarism, he creates two Foundations, small, secluded havens of art, science, and other advanced knowledge, on opposite ends of the galaxy. The focus of the trilogy is on the Foundation of the planet Terminus. The people living there are working on an all-encompassing Encyclopedia, and are unaware of Seldon's real intentions (for if they were, the variables would become too uncontrolled). The Encyclopedia serves to preserve knowledge of the physical sciences after the collapse. The Foundation's location is chosen so that it acts as the focal point for the next empire in another thousand years (rather than the projected thirty thousand)."

Everyone just called it that godamn particle. When the author wrote the book the original title was "that goddamn particle". The publisher thought otherwise and changed it. probably would have sold better with the original title. And we wouldn't be having this meaningless distractive discussion. for a better discussion check out: 2011 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate *i do not own this material and will take it down if requested to.* SUBSCRIBE TO ME: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=zencat999

2011 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate: The Theory of Everything
 
01:47:01

2011 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate: The Theory of Everything

Can the entire universe be explained with a single, unifying theory? This is perhaps the most fundamental question in all of science, and it may also be the most controversial. Albert Einstein was among the first to envision a unified theory that could account for the behavior of all matter and energy in the cosmos, but a definitive solution has eluded physicists to this day. As the 21st century progresses, "string theory" remains the leading candidate to be the "theory of everything"—although some have come to question whether string theorists are on the right track. Still others doubt that a "theory of everything" exists at all—and consider the search for such a theory an outdated philosophy of our search for cosmic truths. Join Director of the Hayden Planetarium Neil deGrasse Tyson as he hosts and moderates six of the world's leading voices in this great scientific debate. Panelists: Dr. Katherine Freese, professor of physics at the University of Michigan Dr. Jim Gates, professor of physics at the University of Maryland-College Park Dr. Janna Levin, professor of physics and astronomy at Barnard College Dr. Marcello Gleiser, professor of physics and astronomy at Dartmouth College Dr. Brian Greene, professor of physics and mathematics at Columbia University Dr. Lee Smolin, theoretical physicist at Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics The talk was recorded at the American Museum of Natural History on March 7, 2011.

2013 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate: The Existence of Nothing

The concept of nothing is as old as zero itself. How do we grapple with the concept of nothing? From the best laboratory vacuums on Earth to the vacuum of space to what lies beyond, the idea of nothing continues to intrigue professionals and the public alike. Join moderator and Hayden Planetarium Director Neil deGrasse Tyson as he leads a spirited discussion with a group of physicists, philosophers and journalists about the existence of nothing. The event, which was streamed live to the web, took place at the American Museum of Natural History on March 20, 2013. PANELISTS: J. Richard Gott, professor of astrophysical sciences, Princeton University, and author of Sizing Up the Universe: The Cosmos in Perspective Jim Holt, science journalist and author of Why Does the World Exist? An Existential Detective Story Lawrence Krauss, professor of physics, Arizona State University and author of A Universe from Nothing: Why There is Something Rather Than Nothing Charles Seife, professor of journalism, New York University, and author of Zero: The Biography of a Dangerous Idea Eve Silverstein, professor of physics, Stanford University, and co-editor of Strings, Branes and Gravity The late Dr. Isaac Asimov, one of the most prolific and influential authors of our time, was a dear friend and supporter of the American Museum of Natural History. In his memory, the Hayden Planetarium is honored to host the annual Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate — generously endowed by relatives, friends, and admirers of Isaac Asimov and his work — bringing the finest minds in the world to the Museum each year to debate pressing questions on the frontier of scientific discovery.

It will use three spacecraft arranged in an equilateral triangle to form a giant Michelson interferometer with arms about 5 million kilometers long. When a gravitational wave disturbs the space-time field between two of the spacecraft, small differences in the relative lengths of the arms should be measurable.'

DR BRIAN COX - EXPLAINING GRAVITY SPACE TIME AND WAVES
 
03:14

DR BRIAN COX - EXPLAINING GRAVITY SPACE TIME AND WAVES

DR BRIAN COX - EXPLAINING GRAVITY SPACE TIME AND WAVES [In Tucson, Arizona, US] Professor Dr Brian Cox (Born, 3 March 1968, Oldham, Lancs) [University of Manchester, Professor of Particle Physics]. He is a Royal Society University Research Fellow based in the Particle Physics group at the University of Manchester, where he holds a chair in Particle Physics. He works on the ATLAS experiment at CERN in Geneva. His main research interest is the FP420 R&D project, aimed at upgrading ATLAS and CMS with forward proton detectors 420m away from the interaction points. In the past, he worked at the H1 experiment at DESY in Hamburg, and the D0 experiment at the Tevatron at Fermilab, Chicago. He defends the expenditure & research spent on the Large Hadron Collider ("LHC") located at CERN, Geneva, Switzerland. Dr Brian Cox previously played keyboards in the boy band D:ream in 1997: "Things can only get better..." He is now married to TV presenter Gia MILINOVICH - done in secret. [She runs a blog where threads include a discussion of whether her husband is gay]. COX now divides his time between Oldham and London, where his wife lives with 11-year-old Moki, her son from a previous marriage. The couple's first date was on 11 September 2001, and they married four years ago in her mother's front room in Duluth, Minnesota. He only told his own parents when he got back. 'I'm a northern man. I don't like any fuss,' he explains. Milinovich's most recent blog post says touchingly: 'There have been many times over the years when I've been extremely proud of my lovely husband. His appearance on Newsnight is right at the bloody top of the list.' When in Geneva, he uses computer 'iChat' to keep in touch with Gia and Moki before going for dinner. A recent newspaper article, in which he described rambling back to his room having usually drunk about a bottle of Châteauneuf du Pape, annoyed his colleagues who said it implied that Cern was a tax-funded drinking den. Cox admits that he hates waking up in the morning, staying in bed until 9am if he can. But he is hardly unfit, running half-marathons and playing football with university colleagues; he used to have a season ticket at Oldham Athletic. These days his taste in music is jazz and singers such as Billie Holiday.

LISA Gravitational Wave Observatory

The Laser Interferometer Space Antenna or LISA mission will study the mergers of supermassive black holes, test Einstein's Theory of General Relativity, and probe the early Universe. Detecting gravitational waves is a new way to observe the Universe. Through them we will learn more about the mergers of giant black holes and the death spirals of stars that black holes capture and swallow. LISA will look for gravitational waves coming from our Galaxy and other galaxies. LISA will also map the structure of space and time around black holes and determine if Einstein's theories are correct.

Plasma Physics and NASA data show a solar storm coming up. Dan Winter eloquently explains the implications and physics behind it. Based of fractality and sacred geometry, the golden mean ratio one can finally comprehend some of the great ancient stories when spirituality was not separate from science. Shamans all over the world recorded the cycles of time and the nine-fold enneagram, Sri Yantra and so forth giving clues about the energetic outline of the universe and our body. Sound magic and properties / origins of sacred shapes and Alphabets is also discussed briefly.

NASA | Atomic Interferometry
 
02:31

NASA | Atomic Interferometry

Einstein predicted gravity waves in his general theory of relativity, but to date these ripples in the fabric of space-time have never been observed. Now a scientific research technique called Atomic Interferometry is trying to re-write the canon. In conjunction with researchers at Stanford University, scientists at NASA Goddard are developing a system to measure the faint gravitational vibrations generated by movement of massive objects in the universe. The scientific payoff could be important, helping better clarify key issues in our understanding of cosmology. But application payoff could be substantial, too, with the potential to develop profound advances in fields like geolocation and timekeeping. In this video we examine how the system would work, and the scientific underpinnings of the research effort.

Gravity, waves, photons. Video 2

Gravity, waves, photons. Video 2

It is important to refresh one's understanding of anything in the field of Physics in order not to become complacent and miss subtle connections between areas of knowledge. Always question that which one knows to be true. CLARIFICATION:- When Electromagnetic waves pass through a common space they are taken to continue without either directly affecting the other, however at their intersection the wave form will be complex, and that is why I use the description 'turbulent'. The visualisation I use only to illustrate how easily it is to become complacent and unquestioning in our view of waves. The key part is that the electromagnetic wave is oscillatory energy, and has a 'time and velocity' function which is essential to understanding the bending of spacetime as specified by Einstein as Gravity. At the end of the day I know a 3rd. grade, 14 year old or so, will understand the concept of Gravity and will cease to regard it as a 'Pull'. Inertia and momentum will also be clarified. IMPORTANT NOTE:- This video only considers the Electron in its free state. Please see the Comments for its captured state in Video 5.
