    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”.

    This podcast was created to accompany a month-long educational project held in Dublin during 2015. The project was created by Dr Shane Bergin (School of Physics, Trinity College Dublin) and Dr Aoibhinn Ní Shúilleabháin (School Of Mathematics & Statistics, University College Dublin) and aimed to make physics part of Dubliners’ everyday conversation by putting notices, posters and projections on public transport, the sides of buildings etc. in order to spark people’s interest and curiosity. In the podcasts, the City of Physics team introduce a variety of highly-regarded scientists to talk about their inspirations and ideas, covering subject such as how physics fits in with the other sciences, and how to talk and communicate about science to a general audience.
