The fantastic YouTube channel Minute Physics is famous for condensing the more, shall we say, information dense concepts in physics into short, easily digestible videos with hand-drawn animations.
Now, with the help of everyone’s personal astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, Minute Physics is running through the entire history of the universe in only eight minutes.
With Tyson’s silky smooth narration, the video literally covers everything, from the inception of our universe to the formation of matter itself, from the first single-celled organisms to us. It’s a whirlwind tour of everything we know, broadly, about the reality we’re trying to make sense of.
Honestly, this is the kind of video that could replace the first week of PHYSICS 101.
