The July Lectures in Physics
A program of lectures aimed at providing insights into fundamental questions in Physics

The tidal forces from the Moon cause the ebb and flow of the sea, and the slow lengthening of the lunar month on geological timescales recorded by oxygen compounds found in ancient corals. The same research group that investigated this ancient oxygen has now developed a method of producing oxygen without electricity to treat sick babies in remote areas.

This lecture looks at oxygen in the FREO2 project.
