Lecture 2: Quantum Field Theory
Posted in Stanford University
In this lecture Susskind discusses the quantum field theory (QFT), a theoretical framework for constructing quantum mechanical models of systems classically parametrized (represented) by an infinite number of fields.
Lecture 1: Introduction To Particle Physics
Posted in Stanford University
Leonard Susskind gives the introductory lecture of a course that will explore the newest revolutions in particle physics. This class explores the properties of light, particles and the quantum field theory.
Lecture 15: A Life with SETI
Posted in Stanford University
Dr. Frank Drake discusses the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) and his role in founding the program. It also elaborates on the possibility of finding extraterrestrial life in the greater universe.
Lecture 14: A Human Place in Outer Space
Posted in Stanford University
Dr. Yvonne Clearwater, Past Principle Investigator for NASA Habitability Research Program, explains the complexity of creating a habitable space station that both promotes research productivity and maintains astronaut health and morale.
Lecture 13: Advanced Life Support Systems
Posted in Stanford University
John Hogan, Bioengineering Branch NASA Ames Research Center, discusses modern research into life support systems and technologies that could be used to create a regenerative and sustainable environment in space.
Lecture 12: Biologically Reversible Exploration
Posted in Stanford University
Chris McKay, Planetary Scientist with the Space Science Division of NASA Ames Research Center, discusses a novel idea - based on the human valuation of life, the mission of astrobiology should be to spread the beauty and diversity of life into the stars.
