How Simple Ideas Lead to Scientific Discoveries

opera blog

Adam Savage walks through two spectacular examples of profound scientific discoveries that came from simple, creative methods anyone could have followed

my favourite example was-
Eratosthenes' calculation of the Earth's circumference around 200 BC(see the video)

enjoy 🙂

"How Simple Ideas Lead to Scientific Discoveries" was animated by the TED-Ed Animation Team (Jeremiah Dickey, Biljana Labovic, Celeste Lai, Kari Mulholland and Franz Palomares)
