Episode #05: Sulfur!
Sulfur is one of the most abundant elements in the universe. Few materials are so linked to life and death as the humble sulfur atom. Present in every cell of our bodies, it is impossible to escape the importance of element #16 on the periodic table. Join Ratticus as he explores the physical and chemical characteristics of this fascinating element: sulfur.
Ratticus started performing in 1999 as the lead guitarist of the “Dixieland Possum Band.” After a break of over ten years, Ratticus has returned with a passion for science education and video. Inspired by the words of Jules Verne, Ratticus’ vision for science education is to present complex scientific principles in a clear and simplistic format while preserving the awe and wonder inherent to scientific discovery.
Everything great in science and art is simple. What can be less complicated than the greatest discoveries of humanity – gravitation, the compass, the printing press, the steam engine, the electric telegraph? -Jules Verne
