Remember having problems with understanding physics in school? Or wondering why the physics teacher absolutely never changes his checkered lumberjack shirt during the entire school year? Or whether the topic even at a most basic level is simply too elaborate for you? Stop wondering. “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough”. Minute Physics, the creator of this lovely video, gives its audience an entertaining background of old and new problems in physics, and, even better, in just a minute! When asked how he got all the lovely ideas for his videos, Henry Reich, the talent behind these highly entertaining clips, responded as follows: “All over the place! Sometimes things I learned when I was actively studying physics, sometimes from books or articles or papers I read or questions people ask me (friends or viewers), or sometimes I’ll see something interesting and it’ll be the seed for a video. The real trick, in fact, isn’t coming up with ideas – it’s figuring out which ideas are actually interesting enough to make into a video, and then picking between those which to make next.” Highly enjoyable and educating!
