  • 1791 Birth of Michael Faraday, known for his work on electromagnetism – the unit of capacitance is named for him, as is the law of electromagnetic induction
  • 1905 Birth of Eugen Sänger, the aerospace engineer known for his contributions to the development of the ramjet and to “lifting bodies” in which the body of an aircraft, rather than wings, generates lift
  • 1907 Birth of Hermann Schlichting after whom the Tollmien-Schlichting equation describing instabilities in viscous boundary layers in fluids is named
  • 1922 Birth of Chen Ning Yang, winner of the 1957 Nobel Prize jointly with Tsung-dao Lee for their work on the nonconservation of parity in interactions mediated by the weak nuclear force
  • Physics in Perspective
    Watch talks from well-renowned physicists at from our lecture series, you may even learn a thing or two

  • Schools lecture series
    The schools lectures feature topics from the Olympics to rock music. Plenty of physics to learn too!
