To look for evidence of life on other planets, we have to adapt what we know about chemistry on Earth to aid our search. Astronomer Dimitar Sasselov explains how we can use what we already know to search for alien life in this Master Class.
Theoretical physicist Andrei Linde was responsible for proposing the ideas of an inflationary multiverse and eternal inflation. In this Master Class, Linde discusses the evolution of these ideas over the past decades and what the future of cosmology hold…
Breakthrough Prize winner Andrew Strominger and string theorist Cumrun Vafa rediscovered the elusive quantity of black hole entropy in a groundbreaking calculation. Join Professor Strominger for an overview of how string theory has allowed us to understa…
Cumrun Vafa, together with fellow world-renowned string theorist Andrew Strominger, developed a new way to calculate black hole entropy in the language of string theory. Follow Vafa as he guides you through some of the more incredible things we have lear…
Synthetic biology gives us the power to redesign biological systems from scratch, providing them with capabilities not found in nature. In this course, Drew Endy discusses how synthetic biology can reshape the global economy, as well as life itself.
Breakthrough Prize and Kavli Prize Laureate, Alan Guth is renowned for his discovery of inflationary cosmology, which for decades has been the dominant paradigm for the origin of the universe.
Max Tegmark, cosmologist and Professor of Physics at MIT, delivers a comprehensive look at the study of our universe, examining both the origin of our cosmos and the infinite questions waiting to be answered.
Join a visual and conceptual introduction to Einstein's spectacular insights into space, time and energy. For a mathematical introduction to Special Relativity check out Special Relativity.
Carlo Rovelli is the discoverer of a theory that attempts to bridge the divide between quantum mechanics and general relativity. Join him as he gives a detailed overview of loop quantum gravity.
Renowned physicist Rai Weiss is best known as one of the original creators of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO). Join him as he explores the history of this amazing project and the technology that made it a reality.
On September 14, 2015, the LIGO gravitational wave detectors made the first confirmed detection of a gravitational wave. Join physicist Nergis Mavalvala as she takes you on an incredible journey from LIGO's humble beginnings to its groundbreaking discove…
MIT professor and materials scientist Markus Buehler discusses how scientists can design new proteins that can revolutionize materials engineering through manipulating vibrations that have been changed from matter into sound and from sound back into matt…
Einstein’s Special Relativity upended our understanding of space, time and energy. While the ideas are subtle, they only require high school algebra, so join this math-based introduction with acclaimed physicist and author, Brian Greene.
Physicist Justin Khoury explores how quantum effects in dark matter could produce non-Newtonian gravitational force within and between galaxies, ultimately providing a hypothesis for how the observed structure of the universe might have arisen.
Nobel laureate Adam Riess walks you through his team's incredible discovery of dark energy and our accelerating universe. Explore one of the biggest mysteries in modern cosmology in this Master Class.
