- Theory of relativity
Here are a just few testimonials from fans of MinutePhysics:
Finally, physics — and other scientific topics — explained without the pain of hours of lecture and endless homework. Henry Reich, 24, with the help of his black Crayola marker sheds light concepts of physics and other cool science in one minute videos.

Science is not my strong point, but when I have a question, I want an answer! My six-year-old son is also full of questions. Minute Physics helps give answers that make sense in just a few minutes.

MinutePhysics is at the top of the heap when it comes to clear, fun, effective science lessons in easy-to-digest bites. It's also one of my absolute favorites.

I got started on the idea of Minute Physics after teaching a group as a Master’s student in Physics. I found that stick figures on a blank background to be the best way to take anyone from curious to understanding a new topic.
I’m passionate about giving you the fastest way to learn a concept. This course is an effort to give you that sense of completion. From time to time I may also add exclusive content into the course. Enjoy!
