Videos about the symbols of Physics and Astronomy

"Ever been confused by all the letters and squiggles used by scientists? Hopefully this site will unravel some of those mysteries. Sixty Symbols is a collection of videos by experts from The University of Nottingham. It's worth noting many symbols have multiple uses and we somtimes tackle them from an unexpected viewpoint."

"Click on "gamma" and you'll find a professor of physics talking about cricket balls... Click on "rho" and we're stuffing paperclips into coffee cups. And sometimes - when there's no symbol to tell a story - well, we just make one up! Whatever symbol you choose, we hope you'll find something interesting and curious."
