Video – A Night With The Stars
After a brief one-week hiatus due to the Teacher Karaoke event on 3rd October, members of the Maths and Physics Society regrouped to watch Brian Cox’s excellent ‘A Night With The Stars’ programme which aired a few years back.
With the help of several notable guests including Sarah Millican, Simon Pegg, Jim Al-Khalili and Jonathan Ross, Cox explained wave-particle duality and electron diffraction with a simple trough of sand and used a long piece of rope to explain how standing waves form. In a section at the end of the video he went on to discuss the uncertainty principle in quantum mechanics.
The video was very interesting and thoroughly enjoyed by all.
