In amusing animation — perhaps a throwback to earlier animations, but good and amusing — produced by Åsa Lucander @ 12foot6, for the television Science Club series on BBC2, hosted by Dara O Briain (who does the narration).

For my money, this should be a valuable classroom tool. In four short minutes the film covers most of the really great advances in physics, suitably for world history or U.S. history. It’s clear enough in its presentation that physics students should find it a useful review. Or more likely, they’ll understand what we’ve been trying to teach them, for the first time.
Science gets left out of history courses way too easily. Here’s a quick way to stick it back in.
Tip of the old scrub brush to Fast Company, where I found the film and details. Fast company also created this 3 second excerpt, in MP4 format, which you may find useful somewhere:
