I enjoyed Professor Copeland's gentle and interesting telling of the story of those equations! You should unleash him more often, Brady. :)

Please let the professors use equations in the videos more often. They made this one so much easier to follow!

"Yes, please."

I love this guy. He's my favorite.

I know you try and keep the maths to a minimum with these videos, and leave it up to people to research more thoroughly if they're interested, but this is probably one of the most interesting videos on your channel (for me, at least), even with the maths.

"If I could conjure up Einstein and bring him into the room right now..."

*dead serious* "Yes please."

"You MOCK my equations!"

Can't discuss these topics in depth without the maths. Keep it coming!

Wonderful talk! Please let there be more equations Brady. I'm sure 60-70% of your audience here can keep up with the equations.

Brady let the man speak, we are not afraid of equations! This is good stuff!

"Blunder" is a bit of an overstatement. He did science, he followed an hypothesis and it was proven wrong. It's ok if Einstein was wrong, that's what science is for.

I wish that in other videos you guys used MORE equations! This was wonderful!

Personally, I like the videos that go through the actual equations. I tend to understand that easier than trying to use words

I love this professor Copeland, he's my favorite. There's a sweet something in his eyes. He seems a very gentle passionate man. Very soothing and easy to listen to.

Excelent video. Please make more longer videos. Especially with prof Copeland and Merrifield. And also let them use more equations. Thank you very much.

Really heavy on the maths this time, I like it :)

16:45 'Yes, please' - I find this a really genuine and heartwarming comment from the professor.

Yay Ed! We need more Ed videos. I'd like one on how Feynman developed his diagrams and how they solve problems in new and interesting ways.

I really love these slightly more mathematical videos! Brady, i know that you are uncomfortable putting too many equations in your videos, but i think that your audience think they are just they provide just enough intrigue! really enjoyed this video
