Fall 2021 Mid-Semester Break MOVIE NIGHT=>The life of James Clerk Maxwell
October 21 @ 18:00 - 19:20 EDT
Recently in February & June 2021, as part of an innovative and fresh approach, i.e. a non-traditional meeting event: we presented video documentaries. This was very warmly received. So we decided to continue the good work.
We proudly present, in the life of James Clerk Maxwell
Summary: This documentary/movie will look at the life and contributions of one of the most celebrated scientists: James Clerk Maxwell [FRSE](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fellow_of_the_Royal_Society_of_Edinburgh) [FRS](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fellow_of_the_Royal_Society) (13 June 1831 – 5 November 1879) was a Scottish [mathematician](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mathematician)and [scientist](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientist) responsible for the [classical theory](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classical_theory) of [electromagnetic radiation](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electromagnetic_radiation) describing electricity, [magnetism](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnetism) and light as different manifestations of the same phenomenon for the first time. [Maxwell’s equations](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maxwell%27s_equations) for electromagnetism have been called the “[second great unification in physics](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unification_(physics))” where the first one had been realised by [Isaac Newton](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaac_Newton).
AFTER the movie – we will have a brief discussion/chat session.
