    A web series hosted by astrophysics professor Matthew O’Dowd which explores abstract concepts in physics and astronomy using a light touch approach. Each episode runs between six and 15 minutes and can be accessed via the Space Time YouTube channel. In Zero-Point Energy Demystified, for example, O’Dowd explains what this type of energy can and can’t do; in Understanding the Uncertainty Principle with Quantum Fourier he describes how "intuitive, large-scale phenomena can give us incredible insights into the extremely unintuitive world of quantum mechanics”.
