CERN scientists simplify space-time in 3 short videos


TedEd has the article with videos CERN scientists simplify space-time in 3 short videos.

Space is where things happen. Time is when things happen. And sometimes, in order to really look at the universe, you need to take those two concepts and mash them together. Space-time is a pretty confounding subject to wrap one’s head around, though, so we asked CERN scientists (and all-around super nerds) Andrew Pontzen and Tom Whyntie to break it down for us. Below, the full three-part series, complete with black holes, space-time diagrams and a load of wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey stuff.

You’ll have to click on the link to the article above to see the videos that they mention as being below.

Do these videos clear things up, or does it boggle your mind even more? Depending how you answer this question says something about you, but I don’t know what.
