98 Laws of the Universe, Parton

In this episode Neil takes us to meet a great mind; a scientist whose work laid some of the foundations that have helped shape the world we live in. James Clerk Maxwell grew up surround by the soft rounded hills, lochs and handsome woodland in Dumfries and Galloway. From his country upbringing and a slow start at school he went on to dazzle on the scientific stage.Einstein and the scientists that followed all pay tribute to the great beauty of Maxwell’s mathematics, his theorems, and the ground-breaking work he did showing that electricity, light and magnetism were all covered by the same fundamental and natural laws. Without him the world wouldn’t be as it is today. To help support the making of this podcast sign up to Neil Oliver on Patreon.comhttps://www.patreon.com/neiloliverNew Videos Every Week Neil Oliver YouTube Channelhttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnVR-SdKxQeTvXtUSPFCL7g Instagram account – Neil Oliver Love Letter https://www.instagram.com/neiloliverloveletter/?hl=en Hosted on Acast.
