The best physics lectures ever?

On Complex Matters, Steve Simon has a post claiming that two public lectures given by Shankar at Aspen are the "best physics lectures ever". I have not watched them yet but would be curious to here what others think. The lectures are on quantum physics and relativity.

  1. I object to his claim that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light (beginning of quantum lecture). Things can far exceed c, in accelerating frames of reference (and we're in one). For example, relative to the travelling twin turning around, everything on Earth (e.g. clock hands) move much faster than the speed of light relative to him.
