The Mechanical Universe and Beyond Part 1 of 4


The Mechanical Universe... And Beyond, is a 52-part telecourse filmed at the California Institute of Technology. The series introduces university level physics, covering topics from Copernicus to quantum mechanics. The series, produced in 1985 by Caltech and INTELECOM Intelligent Telecommunications, uses historical dramatizations and visual aides to explain physics concepts. The latter were state of the art at the time of production: almost 8 hours of computer animation were done by computer graphics pioneer Jim Blinn. Each episode opens and closes with a "phantom" lecture by Caltech professor David Goodstein. Though more than 20 years old, the series is often used as a supplemental aide for its clear explanation of phenomena such as special relativity even today.
