The Mystery of Matter is an exciting series about one of the great adventures in the history of science: the long (and continuing) quest to understand what the world is made of--to identify, understand and organize the basic building blocks of matter.
|1||HDClosed CaptioningVideoOut of Thin Air||One of science’s great odd couples—British minister Joseph Priestley and French tax administrator Antoine Lavoisier—together discover a fantastic new gas called oxygen, overturning the reigning theory of chemistry and triggering a worldwide search for new elements. Soon caught up in the hunt is science’s first great showman, a precocious British chemist named Humphry Davy, who dazzles London audiences with his lectures, introduces them to laughing gas, and turns the battery into a powerful tool in the search for new elements.||54:25||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|2||HDClosed CaptioningVideoUnruly Elements||Over a single weekend in 1869, a young Russian chemistry professor named Dmitri Mendeleev invents the Periodic Table, bringing order to the growing gaggle of elements. But this sense of order is shattered when a Polish graduate student named Marie Sklodowska Curie discovers radioactivity, revealing that elements can change identities— and that atoms must have undiscovered parts inside them.||54:26||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|3||HDClosed CaptioningVideoInto the Atom||Caught up in the race to discover the atom’s internal parts—and learn how they fit together—is a young British physicist named Harry Moseley, who uses newly discovered X-rays to put the Periodic Table in a whole new light. And a young American chemist named Glenn Seaborg creates a new element—plutonium—that changes the world forever, unleashing a force of unimaginable destructive power: the atomic bomb.||55:25||$2.99||View in iTunes|

Great non boring educational show
As a Historian married to a Physicist, I appreciate the accuracy both in science and history this show presents! It is not the boring educational shows performed with monotone characters. It has great information packed with great skill in presenting the information! So glad we got this!
The birth of modern chemistry and physics, grippingly presented. Of my collection of about 200 other science and nature programs bought on the iTunes store, nothing remotely compares.
