Introductory Quantum Physics

Quantum physics underpins all of modern science. We could not understand chemistry, biology, nuclear phenomena, computer chips, solar energy, etc. if we could not rely on quantum theory. In this short course, we shall explain the reasons for the birth of quantum physics, and describe some of the basic principles and concepts that form the foundations of this field of physics. And we’ll do this without using complex mathematics. COURSE OUTLINE A brief introduction to ‘classical’... [More]

Charles Darwin and the Origin of Species

It was Charles Darwin’s observations while on the five year voyage of HMS Beagle that allowed him to come up with one of the greatest breakthroughs in scientific history in his book 'On the Origin of Species. After more than 150 years much of the origins of ‘On the Origin of Species’ have been lost in time and myth and need to be remembered.
