How to use Physics to Guess the Number of M&M's in a Jar : Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted)
Universe to multiverse
Stephen Hawking's 'The Grand Design' puts M-theory to the mysteries of the universe "Philosophy is dead," Stephen Hawking declares in the introduction to his new book. "Philosophy has not kept up with modern developments in science, particularly physics." It's the kind of brash toss-off we've come to expect from Albert Einstein's heir.

Podcasts - Astronomy 161 - Introduction to Solar System Astronomy by Richard Pogge
Description Overview of modern scientific cosmology, including discussion of stars, the Milky Way galaxy, black holes, dark matter, the big bang, and evidence for our current understanding of the universe. Customer Reviews Great content, but audio is seriously lacking by AngryFanOfBirds Great content and the professor is very good at giving real-world analogies which are easy to comprehend.
Modern physics began with a sweeping unification: in 1687 Isaac Newton showed that the existing jumble of disparate theories describing everything from planetary motion to tides to pendulums were all aspects of a universal law of gravitation. Unification has played a central role in physics ever since. In the middle of the 19th century James Clerk Maxwell found that electricity and magnetism were two facets of electromagnetism. One hundred years later electromagnetism was unified with the weak nuclear force governing radioactivity, in what physicists call the electroweak theory. This quest for unification is driven by practical, philosophical and aesthetic considerations. A Geometric Theory of Everything
