TIS#125 The Scientific Ladder of Ideas, Einstein, and Total Solar Eclipses
In this episode, Alex explains the differences between Hypothesis, Theory, and Law in Science as well as how ideas go from hypothesis to theory to law up the scientific ladder of ideas. Later, Alex tells the tale of Einstein's Theory of General Relativity and how it's his favorite example of how ideas climb the scientific ladder of ideas. To tie it all together, Alex shares his backyard viewing of his first partial solar eclipse in Massachusetts during the Great American Eclipse. Learn about solar eclipses, Alex's results from his experiments, and his advice for anyone going to their first one. Catch the end of the video from this podcast to see the amazing pictures from some friends in the Space Community who captured the total solar eclipse from inside the path of totality!
