As someone with no background in physics, this went waaaaay over my head.

I'll be learning more in detail at Georgia Tech soon enough (fingers crossed)!!! Good video !

I've been taught that two electrons repel each other because of interaction between electric fields; so does that mean electric filed is caused by moving (virtual) photos?!

Brilliant! I'm a GCSE student who's very interested in physics but my school only teaches what we need for the test, and I was looking for easy, simple explanations of what I'm interested in, and found it here! :)

Awesome - loved the reference to the individuals involved this work. Also, the drawing as you go is very helpful.

Thanks. I am not here to steal other people's work. They did the work and should be recognised for it
