Youtube channels on science?


Recommended Posts

What are some good youtube channels that deal with science?

I'm looking for either science news or explanations of things in science or discussions. I don't want sort of trivia type explanations like "why does a pan show rainbow colors after washing."

Blast! I was just about to link my "String's Pulled-Out-Of-My-Arse-and Evidence-Free Lectures On Things you Didn't Want to Know But I Think You Should" channel. :D

There are many, includng SciShow and Phisics Girl for a variety of quick explanations. At the other end of the spectrum, many universities have recorded lectures by professors, for example Leonard Susskind of Stanford. For science news, a site like Phys.org or another is good. You can check youtube once you have a subject you want to investigate; though, there is not a formula for research, except be persistent.

All of the above plus DNews, AsapScience, and Mental Floss; however, none of these channels are adequate substitutes for your independent investigation and study of all the available peer-reviewed evidence and published research covering your topic of interest.

I like this. :)

 

Also Bite Sized Psyche is a one of my top 3 science channels. Nice compressed psychological studies and observations summarized nicely.

I will reiterate Phi's note above, since it was missed.

IOW, you can link to other peoples' youtube channels. If you're new, we aren't going to bother verifying if there's a question about who owns it. We will just disappear the post

Channels like, "It's Okay To Be Smart" and "Physics Girl" are usually humorous and hard to take seriously. I would not recommend them if you want a serious lecture. Channels like Fermilab and Veritasium are good for more complicated lectures and in-depth explanations of concepts rather than quick overviews of them. Other than that, I am looking for interesting channels that go into depth myself. If you have any suggestions, please reply to this comment with your favorite science channels.

Not sure if I still count as new but- 

  • Asteron x ( a bit far fetched though I think! )
  • Curious Droid
  • John Michael Godier
  • PBS space time/eons
  • Web of stories-life stories of remarkable people ( Gell-Mann, Teller, Dyson), I find the history of science just as important and fascinating.
  • and about a million more, I found my favourite ones by accident.

Some more....

  • how the universe works (live docs)
  • Khan academy/Medicine  (educational)
  • International Center for Theoretical Sciences (lectures)
  • World Science festival (debates, lectures, videos- the brain, robotics, everything really)
  • Numberphile (numbers)

Ones above are abit for the layman, these are a lot more informative.

Don't watch many.
But of those I have watched, the PBS Digital Series stand out.
They are 'professional' in production as well as content, and not as 'dry' as a lecture.
They manage to keep my interest even on topics I'm sufficiently familiar with.

Hi everyone.

A new YT science video creator is   ScienceClic.   Original videos are in French but they are re-releasing most of them in English.  They tend to specialise in Relativity, especially General Relativity.

Positive Comments:   It's new,  rapid, conveys some good ideas, uses some new animation techniques and it isn't afraid to change some well established concepts if it helps understanding.  Actually, changing these concepts is a bold step that may be a way forward in the pedagogy.

Neutral Comments:  It doesn't follow historical development but instead seeks to present the finished article that is modern GR efficiently.

Negative Comments:  It isn't afraid to change some well established concepts and makes no mention of this.  There is a noteable lack of rigour constructing Christoffel symbols and the geodesic equations with some thoroughly shameful exploitations that could leave you screaming.  The pedagogy for GR may be improved but at what cost?

Overall:   8 / 10.
