The title says it all: this blog features physics videos found everywhere on the web: animations, demonstrations, lectures, documentaries.
Please go here if you want to suggest other nice physics videos, and here if I mistakingly infringed your copyrights. If you understand French, you'll find a huge selection of physics videos in French in my other blog Vidéos de Physique.

Garik Israelian: What's inside a star? (TED Talks)

Garik Israelian is a spectroscopist, studying the spectrum emitted by a star to figure out what it's made of and how it might behave.

Pink Floyd fans will appreciate his reference to Dark Side of the Moon:  "The power of spectroscopy was actually realized by Pink Floyd already in 1973. Because they actually said that you can get any color you like in a spectrum. And all you need is time and money to make your spectrograph. "
