The stars have interested me from a very young age. I had dreams about stars, and star charts and playfully obsessed over astrology (Linda Goodman, you are evil!). I was naturally good at science and math, but instead chose to do more artsy things like theater and speech. I did not fail in these areas, but when I look back now I am somewhat sad that I did not innitially go with my natural strengths. But, what is done is done, and now as an adult my brain aches for knowledge and understanding of the cosmos. So I have become an amature science geek via the interwebs, and I am enjoying it so much. I go back to the same youtube lectures like I used to go back to my favorite music video in the 90's. lol. And I thought I would link them here for posterity. The following are currently my favorite lectures online:
There are many others, but these are most defiantly at the top of my respect list atm. I realize not all of them are "scientific" in nature, but all are GOOD. I am really enrolled in the youtube school of knowledge! lol. And I am enjoying every second of it. Perhaps I will find a physics class to take this summer...or get a tutor.
