    Although science CAN confidently calculate an upper limit for total # of atoms in a glass of water, as well as # of glasses of h2o in all the oceans, nonetheless, they CAN'T yet manage to come up with a reliable estimate for a planetary nightly maximum for the # of post bed-time glass of water requests fielded by parents.

      So because # of atoms/glass of water, # of glasses of water in all the oceans and # of stars in the universe are EACH estimated to be some digit x 10 ^23 (give or take an order of magnitude), then if we roughly (okay ...VERY roughly) estimate there's 1 Earth's oceans total water per star ...THEN total atoms in all our planet's oceans EQUALS total glasses of water in the universe.

          Is this the same idiot who’s “edited” all the Jim al-khalili programmes? Shouldn’t be let loose anywhere near an editing system, it totally distracts from the pleasure of listening to a brilliant science presenter.

                At least the audio is acceptable. Visuals are terrible. Good enough for radio.

                              Will you all stop bitching about the darkness of the video, this was done by purpose because if Youtube detects an image from this movie, it will remove the movie and delete the account of this guy because of copyright issues. If you want to see the real movie,go on Kodi or Torrents.

                                    I think the spot light might be of a purpose. In a presentation like this, after all, the visual, like the music and various sound effects, is just background. Perhaps the spot light could be seen as means of focusing on meaning and ideas rather than the background fluff. And anyway, the presenter wouldn't be all that attractive even in a skimpy two piece bathing suit. I'd rather hear him than see him.

                                                  only 5 percent or less of the universe is made of atoms. not quite 'everything' as he said. it is still a great teaching video.

                                                                                        But I can understand why everyone else is pissed off though. Looks fucking stupid.
