Basic physics is cool again


"I could never get bored in her class," reads one of the comments on the egg drop video. In another video about inertia, she can be seen striking the handle of a knife with a mallet, forcing a potato up the blade. A user wrote, "How have I gone 35 years without seeing or knowing this?"

She has revived Mr. Wizard, and is seen by millions of viewers.  The big US research institutions banned physics for political expediency.  Unfortunately, the table tricks required to catch the attention of viewers do not scale to larger things.  Perhaps she could do an audio book?

I hope this is a trend.  Physics and the Scientific Method will become big again as we all freeze.
