Physical Attraction

219 EpisodesProduced by ThomasWebsite

The show that tries to explain issues in physics, science, and technology - from the birth of stars to the end of the world.


Interstellar Travel: Shooting for the Stars

The Starshot Project is one of those rare, exciting technological plans that seems to come straight out of science fiction - a plan to visit the nearest star to Earth within our lifetimes. 

It will require huge technological advancements in virtually every relevant field, but it's still the most feasible way to get to the stars.

We'll discuss the project, how it would work, and the physics of why interstellar travel is so damn difficult.
