Real World Telekinesis (feat. Neil Turok)

Journey into the world of the unseen! Learners discover how even the simplest of objects moving at a distance without physical interaction or direction was a problem that mystified scientists for hundreds of years. The narrator explains how Farraday's and Maxwell's discovery of the electromagnetic field dispelled the myth that magic was responsible for these remote movements.
