[Review] - Atom 1/3 : The Clash of Titans

The Clash of Titans ( Atom 1/3 ) by Professor Jim Al-Khalili is a documentary about the birth of quantum mechanics. - According to Al-Khalili the discovery of the Atom is the most important achievement in science, ever ( amazing how every scientist says something like that about his or her field ). I wished he hadn't said that in the documentary itself because besides that Atom is one of those documentaries the BBC is world famous for ( starting with The Ascent of Man with Jacob Bronowski ). The program is educational, the photography is in one word beautiful and Al-Khalili is a real story teller, he turns the birth of quantum mechanics into an action movie with heroes, winners and losers. Atom was first showed on TV in early 2008 when I missed it but I have been able to pick up a copy of the entire three part series recently. With MST209 scheduled for next year more posts about physics will be inevitable, I suppose.

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
