Netflix science documentary
More and more people today are interested in science. With the development of modern technologies, it becomes possible for everyone to get the access to the most interesting and fascinating science documentaries. Video-streaming companies allow us to watch the best science shows and movies, giving us a chance to get closer to the world of science.
There are various companies that make our way to science easier, such as Sling TV, Netflix, Hulu. Still, if we compare Netflix shows to the other companies, we will see that it offers the best quality, the best prices, and the best shows. When it comes to the world of science, it gives us the ability to explore, discover and to understand our World. Here are some of the fascinating documentaries provided by Netflix.
1. Particle Fever
This documentary will show you six scientists working to create the large android collider. Take a deep look at what it takes to launch such kind of project.
2. Chasing Ice
This film shows us the hardest environments of our planet through the lens of James Balog camera. It is mainly focused on the loss of ice on the planet.
3. Into The Inferno
If you want to learn more about volcanoes and how they affect, this film is definitely for you. It is about volcanologists who risk their lives to get answers we are all interested in. Enjoy amazing views and outstanding soundtracks flavored with the poetry of Herzog's narration.
4. The Story Of Maths
Math helps us to get a better understanding of the world of science and life in general. Professor Marcus du Sautoy shows us the story that lies behind the numbers and its influence on our lives.
5. Mysteries Of The Unseen World
This amazing film shows us things we can not see with a naked eye. How many universes do you know? What can we find in space? Find the answers to these questions with this incredibly intriguing film.
What is the difference between a scientific hypothesis, theory, and law? When reading scientific articles (and many of the articles on From Quarks to Quasars), you will see the terms hypothesis, theory, and law used to describe something. In the scientific community these words have very specific definitions…
American political personality Bill O’Reilly once famously said, “Tide goes in, tide goes out—never a miscommunication. You can’t explain that.” While he probably can’t explain that, scientists can: The tides are formed by gravitational forces exerted unevenly on the Earth by the moon (video). The Earth’s…
States that the gravitational force between two objects is proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of separation between them. This equation is a result of Isaac Newton s Law of Universal Gravitation, which states that quantities of matter attract other matter to it. The proportionality constant in the equation is called the Universal…Continue Reading
Particle physics usually has a hard time competing with politics and celebrity gossip for headlines, but the Higgs boson has garnered some serious attention. That s exactly what happened on July 4, 2012, though, when scientists at CERN announced that they d found a particle that behaved the way they expect the Higgs boson to behave. Maybe the famed boson s grand and controversial…Continue Reading
A painting of Sir Isaac Newton by Sir Godfrey Kneller, dated to 1689. Credit: Sir Godfrey Kneller Sir Isaac Newton s three laws of motion describe the motion of massive bodies and how they interact. While Newton’s laws may seem obvious to us today, more than three centuries ago they were considered to be revolutionary. Newton was one of the most influential scientists of all…Continue Reading
Through extremely high precision measurements of a pulsar orbiting a white dwarf star, astronomers have found that the gravitational constant, which dictates the force of gravity, is “reassuringly constant” throughout the universe. Just as the speed of light in a vacuum () and Planck’s constant () well-known universal constants, the gravitational constant (or simply ““) has…Continue Reading
Who better to describe the Higgs boson — colloquially called the “God particle” — than the man who helped theorized its existence and is its name sake? Dr. Peter Higgs sat down with the BBC’s Life Scientific radio program Monday and gave one of the most basic descriptions he could. But the Nobel laureate was able to get to the key points in just two minutes on BBC’s show. Dr…Continue Reading
Most of the matter in the universe may be made out of particles that possess an unusual, donut-shaped electromagnetic field called an anapole. This proposal, which endows dark matter particles with a rare form of electromagnetism, has been strengthened by a detailed analysis performed by a pair of theoretical physicists at Vanderbilt University: Professor Robert Scherrer and…Continue Reading
