Minute Physics: little bits of science

Minute Physics is a YouTube Channel full of short, simple explanations of physics. Learn why there are tides, what neutrinos are and how to find them, why there is no pink light, and why Galloping Gertie didn't collapse due to resonance.

If you have another 41 minutes, you can learn more about Minute Physics from it's creator, Henry Reich.
