Sometimes you need to slow things down to figure out what’s going on. At a molecular level, slowing things down requires some pretty specialized equipment: lasers.

Picture this — you’re a worm. Yep, a worm. And not just any worm, a microscopic worm! How do you know where to go, or which way is up? And more importantly, why do we care? You’ll find out in this lesson.

The vastness of space can boggle the mind, but when it comes down to it, the same forces that determine what happens when you drop an apple in the lunch line also determine how galaxies form and move. Of course, there isn’t much dark matter or gamma rays in the school cafeteria, but still, it’s mostly the same. You’ll see.

Quantum physics is behind advances in digital cameras and cell phones, so it must also be able to explain the basics, right? Wrong. It turns out that classical physics doesn’t always work in the quantum world.

What do we do about the microscopic particle of all-things-bad coronavirus? Well, to quote Matt Damon in The Martian: We’re going to have to science the *bleep* out of this. And it’s never been more important to remember how science works.

What separates the gold medal sprinters from the casual weekend jogger…besides the intense training, of course? Thanks to a careful analysis of human runners and good old-fashioned physics, we now have a pretty good idea.

Researchers are making waves in an unlikely place: the human body. The reason? To detect and diagnose diseases.

When I think space stuff, I think solid, steady masses moving in organized orbits and rotations. But it turns out, they wobble! Isn’t that kind of cute to think of a wobbling planet? Just me? Well, anyway, it turns out that the wobbles of stars and planets can help us know more about the universe. How? Check out the lesson to find out.

Space is big. (duh). So big that getting anywhere close to even our solar system’s nearest neighbors seems impossible. But what if we told you that you that researchers have a plan to make light-speed space exploration a reality? One-way trip to Proxima Centauri, anyone?

Remember when our solar system had nine planets? (If you don’t, please don’t tell me because it reminds me of how old I am). Well, not satisfied with eight planets, some astronomers have been using some nifty physics to bring back planet nine. Is there evidence strong enough to rewrite textbooks again? You decide.

How do you design a robot that can swim efficiently under water? Scientists are studying the physics behind dolphin movement for the answer! (And if you’re wondering why scientists are designing robots that can swim efficiently under water… this lesson covers that, too.)

Newton’s laws don’t only apply here on Earth. The most basic of physics principles are helping astronomers to understand strange phenomena lightyears away.

When you think Galápagos, you probably think about biology (and with good reason), but as BiteScis co-founder Shannon Morey explains in this lesson, physics provides the key to understanding how climate change affects the Galápagos’s coral reef ecosystem.
