If you are aware of an interesting new academic paper (that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal or has appeared on the arXiv), a conference talk (at an official professional scientific meeting), an external blog post (by a professional scientist) or a news item (in the mainstream news media), which you think might make an interesting topic for an FQXi blog post, then please contact us at with a link to the original source and a sentence about why you think that the work is worthy of discussion. Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread. Thank you.

Video Description

I created this video to help people learn about physics in a way I hope they enjoy and understand. I primarily focus on the "Law of falling bodies", but throw in a little extra useful physics knowledge at the end as well.

Video Creator Bio

Hi my name is Erick. I am an aspiring writer and filmmaker. I enjoy learning how things work, brainstorming, and making people laugh.

I thought your video was well put together and the examples were well thought out and relevant. My suggestions would to be to vary your tone a bit more in presentation and to explain more why your examples work, maybe just by displaying the basic equations or the ideas behind them.
