One of the nice benefits of FiOS and/or watching the HD channels is I’m watching some very cool and heady science shows. For the past two months, I’ve recently been watching two fantastic shows in particular:
I’m currently watching an episode of The Universe on the History Channel in high definition about alternate universes, the unified theory, and all that jazz. These are available in SD, but watching them in HD is beauty on a whole different level. It’s been interesting that Albert Einstein touched upon many of these topics in the early-to-mid 20th century — that man was truly a genius.
The shows use lots of computer graphics and interviews with scientists to help explain the topics, but the science is mind-boggling, I often rewind once or twice to try to understand a particular concept. And I’m sure these topics have been dumbed down or “laymanized” for the every man who is watching.
