Crazy hair not required. Learn how physicists power everything from rockets to iPhones.
“In this video you’ll walk step-by-step through the work life of a physicist and hear about how he analyzes data, and designs and conducts experiments to learn more about the world around us.
Physicists conduct theoretical and applied research to extend knowledge of natural phenomena and to develop new processes and devices in fields such as electronics, communications, power generation and distribution, aerodynamics, optics and lasers, remote sensing, and medicine and health. They are employed by electronic, electrical and aerospace manufacturing companies, telecommunications companies, power utilities, university and government research laboratories, hospitals and by a wide range of other processing, manufacturing, and research and consulting firms. Astronomers conduct observational and theoretical research to extend knowledge of the universe. They are employed by government and universities.”
