YouTube Spotlight: Sixty Symbols

A heavy Physics-oriented channel. Yummy! Let’s talk about Sixty Symbols.

Sixty Symbols is a Physics channel from Brady HaranĀ (the same person who madeĀ Numberphile). I was reluctant to spotlight this channel because it may not appeal to such a large viewer base as the other channels I have done spotlights on in the past. The reason for this is that you do require a general knowledge of physics.

The channel tries to explain advanced physics in fairly simple language. Brady interviews a number of professors from the University of Nottingham. For example, Philip Moriarty and Edmund Copeland. They are really great speakers and are very interesting to listen to. In fact, I enjoyed Professor Copeland’s longer talks (around 30 minutes each) on Cosmic Superstrings and Dark Matter.

Just from the above topics I mentioned, you can see why having a good knowledge of physics is crucial. While the speakers do make an effort to explain jargon used, having that knowledge will go a long way.

So, if you do have some formal education in physics or do have a really strong interest in getting to know what cutting edge physics is like, Sixty Symbols will not disappoint. There’s a wealth of knowledge in this channel, and some very cool talks with people that are extremely talented in their respective fields
