This guided tour of the dinosaur known as Dilophosaurus is narrated by the discoverer of Dilophosaurus, Sam Welles, formerly a professor at the University of California Museum of Paleontology (UCMP). Links lead to Dr. Wells' description of the discovery, as well as the morphology and habits of the creature. He also compares and contrasts the real animal with the one shown in the movie Jurassic Park. ... Full description.

This video lecture explores the chemistry of the hordes of molecules in the interstellar medium revealed by radioastronomical observations of our galaxy. Extremely fast reactions result in the high abundance of complex organic compounds in the space between the stars. The chemistry of the interstellar medium illustrates that complex synthesis occurs under totally abiotic conditions. The specific reactions ... Full description.

In 1985 an experiment, designed to unravel the carbon chemistry in red giant stars, revealed the existence of C60 or buckminsterfullerene (a special form of carbon, known also as bucky balls). This video lecture describes the story of the discovery of this molecule and the way its symmetry relates to the natural and physical world. This elegant hollow cage-like molecule which has the same shape as ... Full description.

In this set of video lectures given in 1979 by Nobel prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman, presents not only a lesson in basic physics but also a deep insight into the approach of the 17th century physicist, Isaac Newton. The first lecture, Photons - Corpuscles of Light, is an introduction to photons and their properties as well as to the theory of quantum electrodynamics and the calculation of ... Full description.

In this video lecture, Helen Sharman, the first British astronaut, gives an account of her personal experiences on the space station Mir. Using models and film to illustrate key scientific concepts, she discusses the way the Third Law of Newton and convection apply to rockets, space flight, weightlessness and survival. Sharman explains how breathing, eating, using the toilet, and recycling were accomplished ... Full description.

This video lecture includes discussion of the physical properties of gases and demonstrates how air is liquefied. Liquefied gases are a key resource for survival with an amazing range of applications and there are now few industries which are not in some way dependent on this major raw material. Life-saving operations in hospitals, the purification of polluted rivers and lakes, and superconductivity ... Full description.

In this lecture, a physics professor describes wormholes in space and other ideas that might allow travel into the past or future, based on special and general relativity and quantum physics. The physicist explains how oscillating particle worldlines can be due to a force or curved spacetime; how time travel can be possible with closed timelike loops in spacetime; and what the main time travel paradoxes ...
