The Physics Philes, lesson 35: I’m Forgetful

I’ve had a really, really good time these past several weeks learning about physics and math. It’s challenging and a lot of fun. I don’t know why I didn’t notice this in high school. But this week I’ve done something I’ve never done before, and it’s something that will seriously affect this week’s installment of The Physics Philes.

I forgot my book and notes at work.

At least, I really hope I did. Because they are not in my apartment. I know, I know! How could I have been so irresponsible? I know how hooked you’ve become on simplistic understanding and explanations of complex physical phenomena, and I’m truly sorry. I was really excited to talk more about how momentum works in elastic collisions. Really! I was! But it will have to wait.

I won’t leave you out in the cold, however. I present you with the first Fermilab Physics Slam. It seems to be modeled off a Story Slam, which, if you listen to The Moth Podcast, you’re quite familiar with. Five physicists get 12 minutes to explain their research. Yeah, it’s an hour and a half, but it’s the most physics-y physics video that ever physic-ed, so I think you’ll like it.

Again, sorry for being a Forgetful Francis. I’ll have my life together next week.
