About This Product

Einstein’s theory of relativity, Newtonian physics, and Mendeleyev’s periodic table. Nanotechnology, quantum computing, and string theory. From the fundamental discoveries that changed history, to the science-fictionesque emerging fields of the present, this collection is filled with videos that highlight the most important topics in physics, chemistry, and astronomy.

Collection Highlights:

  • Essential Chemistry: Core Concepts Video Clip Collection – with 46 self-contained clips from three to six minutes each, this collection comprehensively covers the fundamentals of chemistry.
  • Welcome to the Nanoworld! – a four-hour documentary series on both the promise and risks of this fascinating new branch of science.
