Adam Savage, “How Simple Ideas Lead to Scientific Discoveries”

Great little talk by famous myth-buster Adam Savage. He focuses on three examples: feynman’s childhood inspiration from observing a ball in a wagon, the discovery of the circumference of the earth, and Fizeau’s ingenious device for measuring the speed of light.

The talk has some great graphics and I really enjoyed his discussion about Fizeau’s experiment.

check it out!

I highly recommend that everyone watch this!
