CERN'S Tom Whyntie explains the universe, for beginners

If you thought the big bang theory was boring and particle physics was hard to understand, you've never seen it explained by a cartoon version of CERN physicist Tom Whyntie.

He is able to put the information from a three-month long science course, into an easy to understand three-minute long TEDEd video, with the help of animation team at Hornet Inc. The British voiced blob bounces around and explains how scientists study the big bang by replacing the heat, energy and activity of the first few seconds of the universe.

Take a look for yourself, you might even learn something.
