Video - Bose-Einstein Condensate Explained

Recently saw that someone spotted a 2:39 video clip posted on YouTube that explains Bose-Einstein Condensation. Not sure where the video is from (there is a small BBC Hour logo on the screen, so perhaps its a BBC Documentary or something). Need to find that out. If anyone knows, please post a comment or email us!

At any rate, the video clip is short, and explains BEC in an accessible manner. It doesn't go too deeply into the details of the theory or its implications, but its fun to watch. I especially like the beginning segment where people in an amusement park are spinning around, and flying off the ride!
