Fascinating history plus a look into the immeasurable future 8 Feb. 2014
By Harold Wolf - Published on Amazon.com
Cave men did it. Astronauts did it. Every top scientist did it. Modern man can't keep up with it.
"IT" is measurement. This miniseries addresses all 7 fundamental international units of measurement. A brilliant math master, Marcus du Sautoy, brings viewers another astounding science DVD series that is capable of dazzling beginners, and delighting professionals. He's seldom over your head in lingo or vocabulary, so the viewing is educational for all.

THIS IS A MUST OWN FOR EDUCATIONAL LIBRARIES.

SDH SUBTITLES for all 3 episodes, each about an hour.
Episodes are fully packed with fact, visuals, experiments from past and state-of-the-art.
```` 1- - - TIME AND DISTANCE: Basic measurements from privative time, 17,000 years ago a French cave calendar. Cubit to the world's rulers using body parts as measure standards, as changeable as their reigns. Academy of Sciences in Paris standardizes length (meter) during the Fr. Revolution. Time advances to atomic and speed of light.
```` 2- - - MASS AND MOLES: The definitive kilogram vaulted underground near Paris is losing weight. That is a crisis for measurement throughout the world. Is replacing "Le Grand K" with a "mole" the answer? So much education, so fast, but in a pleasant way, I went back for a second view immediately.
```` 3- - - LIGHT, HEAT AND ELECTRICITY: Is there a fundamental never changing law of the universe that can be used for a more accurate measurement of heat, light, and electricity? See how far we've already come on Earth. How close to finding better measurement are we in modern science and technology? The historical photos, footage, and facts are amazing; as are the peeks into the future.

I found this presentation interesting but disappointing. I was expecting more science but got more history instead.
