What is the best science (physics, math) documentary you've ever seen?

Pls an actually interesting and scientific one.

Not the best I've seen but might be what you're looking for: Stephen Hawking's recent doc is on Netflix, but I forget what it's called. Gets pretty deep into string theory and such.

/tv/ is counting on you

yeah he's really the lt. dan of science isn't he

Hm, you could respect him because he predicted the existence of black holes and some of their properties before they were observed for example.

Hm, I think documentaries are shitty concept. You can't do anything interesting for an audience with no backround information in 45 minutes and I have yet to see a documentary that doesn't start from scratch (because the audience would be too small I guess). Even if you are completely clueless, over the course of a small book of 80 pages you can get too some really interesting results. People doing tv-documentaries either need to cover a boring topic (wich they won't) or make a shitty documentary (wich they do). Think about it that way. (Were your first 3 lectures on any topic ever interesting? To be fair, our first lecture on algebraic topology covered a wide range of interesting topics and results, but our professor only made wild claims, drew pictures and proved nothing. It takes time to develope interesting things in a proper manner, if you want to see why it doesn't go any faster without becoming shit, watch a video of "numberphile" on youtube. HOLY FUCK! I watched 3 of them and every time I went pure rage mode.

suggestions of generally interesting introductory ~80 page books?

Probably the horizon one on infinity. I think it was just called Infinity

Not math/physics, but Frozen Addicts is a pretty good neuroscience documentary. In fact, it's traditionally shown to neuro students early in their studies. Unlike most documentaries, it actually goes pretty in-depth and doesn't try to appeal to idiots.
>>
>>6621289
What are you referring to
>>
>>6621289

Most bbc documentaries. American tv is shit. I only like a handful. Netflix is shit too, though Hawking's is decent. In general I like the philosophical ones and ones about famous mathematicians going insane.
