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.

Video Description

There is so much to talk about in physics, In this case I test a few Science, Physics and Chemistry tricks of things I could do from things I found at home, In conclusion I found that there is more to learn from testing after reading a couple of books! and it's quite fun :)

I absolutely loved this. The filming and music were perfect. It was so intriguing to watch that I watched it more than once. I gave you 5 stars, that's how much I liked it. The only minor thing was that at times it seemed a little more chemistry then physics. However it was great.

Please take a look at our video. "The Escape - Physics & Fairytales" It's been challenging getting people in the community to look at it, so I hope you will and rate it. Our aim, too is to stimulate interest in physics for a lay person in an entertaining and informative way. My team & I used an identifiable character in children's literature (Cinderella) who uses physics to plan her quick escape. By showing the functionality of physics (although for a fictional character), we felt this will help create an interest in others for the field of physics. I hope you like it.

Great job. I hope you do well in this contest too.

I enjoyed the video but the contest asked us to show the physics. You showed physical principals in operation, but there was not explanation on what was happening or how to recreate it. I wish that information was included. It would have made a great contest entry.

This is a great video, with a good mix of visual effects and physical explanations.


PS: We would appreciate it if you could find the time to view and rate our short video, Quantum Harmonies of Gravity.

This video has excellent cinematography, music, and editing. I love the feel and style you achieved. That said, there are a few problems I have with it. First, unless this is an alternate spelling I am unaware of, I do not think carbone dioxide is correct. Also, you showed images of crystals forming while talking about sublimation; I think this could be misleading for some. Perhaps your text editor didn't like the subscript in CO2. I've had that happen before; it's frustrating. I hope you don't take this the wrong way; again, I really love the way it looks, it's just that the text doesn't match. Good luck, regardless!

If you would like to watch and rate my video, "The Cool Physics of Refrigeration," that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Andrea (+ Pamela)!

First I wanted to say thank you for the kind words and feedback on our video. It is very much appreciated. :)

Secondly, we really loved the aesthetic of your video. The lighting was great and the macro shots were gorgeous. We particularly liked the images of color being spread out by the addtion of soap (decreased surface tension). One of them looked like the iris of an eye

We also thought that it could have been a bit stronger if there were more emphasis on the physics, but over all was beautiful video.

Best of luck!

Hi Andrea and Pamela,

Very beautiful video, excellent production, and fun physics and chemistry!

I wish you good luck in the contest! And if you have time, I would appreciate if you will watch and rate my videos The puzzle of quantum reality and Can a black hole keep a secret?.

Best regards,

Your video is very interesting, and I loved it!

My video is A universe in a cup of water, I hope you will like it too.

I wish you success!

Andrea, great job! The camera work and music and experiments were so exciting to watch!!! What else could I do, but give you a five! I so appreciate the spirit of physics and experiments!!

Beautiful video, with great cinematography and wonderful synchronization between the music and the action... I am glad you reached the 10-vote threshold!

If you ever do an updated version of the video, I noticed two typos in the text: at 0:23, "carbone" does not take an "e" in English, and at 0:44, "CO" should have a "2" subscript.

Good luck in the contest!


P.S. I have submitted 3 videos in this contest (the trilogy "This Is Physics") and although part 1 has already reached the 10 votes threshold, parts 2 and 3 are still in need of votes (I think a few people watched all 3 but only rated the first part). If you could take a look at my videos and leave me feedback, it would be quite appreciated!

Nicely done. I especially liked the spreading colors -- what was going on there?

Here's my Higgs Geometry video if you can have a look.

It's tricky to present the mathematics of symmetry breaking and particle physics to a popular audience, so I do appreciate feedback on it.

Great work here-- I love this a lot.

Very professional, snappy, and informative. Super impressed! I hope you win.

Nice video. I love it so much. Your video quality is too high. Which camera did you use?
