Nobel Physics Lectures are probably a bit too technical for non-physicists, but, for physicists, they are always worthwhile watching. One can be confident that they will be well prepared (Nobel prize winners don’t just pull an all-nighter the night before their Nobel lecture to get their powerpoint presentations finished. These darn things will follow them for eternity). And the people delivering these lectures certainly know their stuff well. This year’s Physics Nobel Prize of course went to experimental quantum computing (Eat your heart out HEP! Pow!…Take that Yuri Milner and String Theorists!).

Besides physics, you will learn a bit of the history of the field from people who participated in it. Plus you might get a feeling for what these 2 guys are like.
