Atoms and the Periodic Table (1 of 15)



Episode 1 of In Search of Giants: Dr Brian Cox takes us on a journey through the history of particle physics. In this episode we learn that the Greeks knew about atoms and how Mendeleyev’s periodic table was among the first clues that the atom had a deeper structure.

This film is part of a series originally broadcast on Teachers’ TV (

The series was made with the support of The Science and Technology Facilities Council ( – Official UK LHC website for public and schools. – School resources on the LHC, how science works and particle physics.

    1XAJUMAMOY- And to think the 80+ elements were also made of atoms that COULD be also made of even smaller atoms…

How big is our planet? – (self experiment) | Breakthrough Junior Challenge 2018




Is our planet infinitely big? NO, CERTAINLY! Then how big is it ?

Today satellites have enlightened us to get the exact picture of our earth. But 2200 year ago a man called Eratosthenes could find the Circumference of the entire earth using just SHADOW and HIGH SCHOOL MATHEMATICS with an error of less than 1%!!

And yes you can find the circumference of the Earth yourself !!!

Watch the video to learn more.

This is my first attempt in the Breakthrough Junior Challenge.

Please leave a comment if you want to ask any question. Any sort of advice is solely appreciated.

Like and Share if your brain was pleased with the video!!!

Thank you so much for watching!

I wish luck to all the fellow participant out there.

Who is Eratosthenes?
Eratosthenes was a mathematician and the chief librarian of the historic library in Alexandria. Eratosthenes was also termed as Beta, the second Greek letter as he was second best in everything after Archimedes. He developed a way to find prime numbers known as the Sieve of Eratosthenes. Find more of it on the internet.

Cosmological Principle | Breakthrough Junior Challenge 2018




Have you ever wondered where you live and what is hidden in the blackness of the cosmos? Is there any end or is it infinite? Where is the center of the universe? …or is there no center?
I am sure at least once you were thinking about it. In this video I will try to answer these questions.
