I just watched a lecture by Professor Brian Cox on quantum theory. I’ve actually had all of this stuff in high school and understood it, but I couldn’t get myself to turn the lecture of. He has such a nice and clear way of explaining things, with winner charisma to accompany him while he does it. He makes physics fun and though he didn’t really teach me anything new, I can’t help but love it. I feel really inspired now to save up for his DVDs where he explains more about the universe, because it seems it might be really, really interesting.
There are just a few other things to say.
A) Why did my school never inform me that all of this was part of quantum theory? I’ve been living under the impression that I had no clue what it was, when I apparently know very well what it is. B) Everything sounds so weird in English when you’ve been taught physics in another language (in my case, Dutch). C) Sometimes I really miss physics. D) Some kind soul uploaded the whole lecture, A Night With The Stars, here, in case you’re interested and want to watch.

E) I love him for his love of Manchester, which is very dear to me for several reasons. <3
