It’s important that everyone understands what scientists and mathematicians have discovered about our universe. Some of the facts about our world are so strange we need to think hard. The videos below are designed to help everyone think about the universe and our place in it. Everyone at the Royal Greenwich Trust School is encouraged to keep abreast of the latest research in all areas of the world so that we are global citizens with expanded minds and horizons. Physics and maths are often subjects that some people don’t find appealing, but that’s probably because their marvels have been hidden from them. Hopefully these videos give a taste of how fascinating they really are, and how marvelous our world really is.
The first one is about the size of the universe, and how fast it moves.
The second one is about how the universe started and is explained by Nobel Prize winner Stephen Hawking.
The third one picks up on the notion of infinity that is mentioned in the first video.
And just when you think you’ve grasped infinity, the fourth video introduces us to some mind blowing paradoxes of infinity, just to keep us all on our toes.
And if infinity is the biggest dimension, then this next video looks at the opposite of infinity!
And this video gives us some insights into how far we can go into this infinite universe.
This demonstration of a computer's ability to interact directly with our brains raises exciting questions about their potential to integrate with our lives. At the Royal Greenwich Trust School students are learning the computer science behind how these innovations can be realised.
