Episode 4 — Physics: A Brief History

Aristarchuskeplernewtoneinstein100 Thumb-1In future episodes, I’ll be discussing various turning points in our understanding of the universe around us — so it made sense to me to start with a little historical context. This episode is an overview of the history of physics, at a very high level so I can get through everything (at least briefly) in under half an hour. From the first theories of the solar system to the “theory of everything” in under 27 minutes!.
