Welcome


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.

Omega and the End of the Universe



Omega is the actual density of the universe divided by its critical density:  if it is greater than 1, there will be a big crunch; if it is lesse than 1, the universe will expand forever.  Evaluating omega is not easy, partly because of dark matter (WIMPs:Weakly Interactive Massive Particles, and MACHOs:  Massive Astrophysical Compact Halo Objects).
