About MinutePhysics

MinutePhysics wants to illuminate complex physics questions, concepts, and mysteries in a minute or two—or sometimes three and a half if it’s a tricky one like antimatter. MinutePhysics covers the pressing and current (“Why Do We Put Telescopes In Space?"), the comical (“How Far Can Legolas See?"), and the puzzling (“Upside Down Mountains in Real Life"). Using hand-drawn and stop-motion animation, MinutePhysics turns difficult concepts into storybooks, living up to their motto—taken from Rutherford via Einstein—"If you can’t put it simply, you don’t understand it well enough."
