iMechanica Video: Richard Feynman Messenger Lectures

In these Messenger Lectures on "The Character of Physical Law," originally delivered at Cornell University and recorded by BBC Nov. 9-19, 1964, physicist Richard Feynman offers an overview of selected physical laws and gathers their common features into one broad principle of invariance. From 1945 to 1950, Feynman taught theoretical physics at Cornell. He went on to accept a professorship at Caltech and was named co-winner of the 1965 Nobel Prize in physics.

iMechanica Video: Why spaghetti never snaps in half? 130,000 fps slow mo video reveals

Challenge yourself to snap a spaghetti stick in half by bending two ends. It always snaps into three or more pieces, but not two. But why? Indeed this phenomenon has puzzled many people, including the great Richard Feynman, for many years. The puzzle was only solved in recent years. Slow mo videos by ultrahigh speed camera reveal why. Check out this iMechanica Video with 6+ million view on YouTube.

Introducing iMechanica Video

If a picture is worth of 1,000 words, a 1-min video is worth of 1.8 million words.  1,000 word/frame x 30 frame/s x 60 s. 

LOL, seriously? Maybe not. But a well made video does provide information in an effective and efficient way that is often times impossible via other media.
