  • 1856 Birth of Carl Runge, the mathematician and physicist known for inventing the Runge-Kutta Method in numerical analysis and for studying the spectral lines produced by various elements
  • 1912 Birth of Edward Mills Purcell, winner of the 1952 Nobel Prize along with Felix Bloch, for their independent discoveries of nuclear magnetic resonance, which is now used as the basis of MRI machines in hospitals
  • Physics in Perspective
    Watch talks from well-renowned physicists at from our lecture series, you may even learn a thing or two

  • Schools lecture series
    The schools lectures feature topics from the Olympics to rock music. Plenty of physics to learn too!
