Fay Dowker – “Why black holes are hot”

Happy new year! Have you written your commitment for this year? If not a great place to start is My Life Book test.

By the way, today I want to share an amazing lecture about black holes and beyond.

Fay Dowker is a British Theoretical Physicist at Imperial College London. As a student, she was interested in wormholes (nice one, I asked Jocelyn Bell about wormholes last month) to and quantum cosmology. Having studied at the University of Cambridge, Dowker was awarded the Tyson Medal in 1987 and completed her Doctor of Philosophyunder the supervision of Stephen Hawking (yes, him!) in 1990. She was later a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, at the University of California at Santa Barbara and also the California Institute of Technology.

Richard Phillips Feynman – “The Last Journey Of A Genius”

It’s Saturday, and it’s time to travel and meet great people.

Richard Phillips Feynman. He is absolutely one of my favorite person ever. A mentor. He was a theoretical physicist, and also an adventurer, a musician, a world-class raconteur.

This video shows the story of physicist Richard Feynman’s fascination with – and efforts to visit – a remote country in the center of Asia, called Tannu Tuva, “the land where the reindeer meets the camel”.

Michio Kaku – “The Universe in a Nutshell”

Let’s talk about physics!

Michio Kaku is a theoretical physicist and a great speaker, he is very passionate and in this video he shows a marvelous journey thorough the major theories of physics.

This is a part of his Big Think serie. Every idea on Big Think comes from an ever-growing network of 2,000 Big Think fellows and guest speakers, who comprise the top thinkers and doers from around the globe.

Welcome to Berry Brains!

Hello there, how are you today?

The idea of this blog come from a project of mine to put together science and self-improvement. I studied Physics (actually I continue to study by myself too), and I am very passionate about inspiring stories, self-improvement and social impact projects.

I want to create a great place where I can share videos about these topics, inspire other people and grow together.

Oh, why Berry Brains? Because a love berries! And berries is a great nourishment for the mind too. Here your brain will stay fresh, joyful and fed, just like after a good cup of berries.

Let’s have fun!
