The Two Great Revolutions in Science    NEW!

At the end of the 19th century, many Physicists thought their work was done, that the nature of the physical world was completely understood. They acknowledged that there were a few loose ends, the discovery of radioactivity of certain substances, which seemed to violate the laws of physics, a problem with predictions for Black body radiation, and a problem with Maxwell's equation which seemed to violate Galilean relativity.

These "loose ends" resulted in two great revolutions in science that upended our understanding of reality, Einstein's theory of relativity and Quantum Mechanics. In this course, with the help of the Teaching Company's "Einstein's Relativity and the Quantum Revolution, Modern Physics for Non-Scientists," we will explore these revolutionary ideas.
