Radical Physics is a video series about FUNDAMENTAL science. Radical means root-like: deep, nourishing, and supportive. Physics is the study of matter and energy, space and time, stability and change; it supports all of science just as a root system supports a mighty tree.
 
A straightforward exploration of introductory physics lies along the Radical Physics (RP) "taproot."  Taproot episodes are labeled RPn, where "n" is a counting number.
 
Not-so-central "tendril" episodes are referenced in -- and linked to -- taproot episodes. Tendrils are labeled RPna, where "a" is a letter of the alphabet. For example, RP1 is the first taproot episode of Radical Physics. RP1a is the first tendril episode of RP1; RP1a is linked (both literally and conceptually) to RP1.
 
Along with the taproot and its tendrils, Radical Physics presents interviews, movie critiques, and other fun videos that provide a *wonder*ful scientific vision of the world.
 
Physics is the science that goes deep and whose influence is felt just about everywhere. Radical Physics goes deep, too.  As the months go by, it will grow and spread, helping to ground a beautiful and powerful understanding of the world.  I hope you enjoy Radical Physics!
