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!

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.

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

I read a book about the universe, and I'm pretty sure that Lambda is going to turn out to be 42.

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.

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

_If I could conjure up Einstein and bring him into the room now-
- Yes, please._ * little smile *

The whole thing is great, but this is my favorite part of the interview.
