Nobel Laureate Steven Chu in a conversation with UC Berkeley’s Harry Kreisler about scientific inquiry and the evolution of Chu’s own research interests

Steven Chu is the first among the trio which recieved the 1997 nobel prize in physics “for development of methods to cool and trap atoms with laser light”. The Google Video above is an interview( You can find the transcript of that interview here. By the way, the photos above are from the same site. )

Talking of Google videos, there is of course the video about Feynman The pleasure of finding things out – RP Feynman which is a must -watch.

Excellent short 40 min documentary interview with Dr. RP Feynman- one of the greatest physicist of our times and a Nobel Laureate. Specially uploaded for students of NSIT.

If you haven’t seen it already, I would strongly recommend that you watch it ! And yeah, since this is an excellent excuse to post one of my favourite photos of Feynman, here it is 🙂

This is a multimedia video from Huygens. It is a bit large(15.4 MB) but it has some good pictures of Titan(one of the moons of Saturn) and is worth watching.
