Can particles really be in two places at once?

Here’s another stellar video from Sabine Hossenfelder. Today I tell you what happened when I wrote an opinion piece for the Guardian about quantum computing, had to explain what a qubit is, and decided against using the phrase that it “can be in two states at the same time”. What happened next and what did […]

Has quantum mechanics proved that reality does not exist?

In the past years you may have seen headlines claiming that objective reality does not exist because some quantum mechanics experiment has shown it. In this video Sabine Hossenfelder explains what this is all about and why this experiment doesn’t show that reality doesn’t exist.

Quantum Biology Explained by Jim Al-Khalili

Prof. Jim-Al-Khalili explains the emerging field of quantum biology and discusses how this new discipline has developed from its inception in the 1920s until fruition in the late 1990s with the discovery of quantum effects in magnetoreception, olfaction, enzyme catalysis, and photosynthesis.

Will Constructor Theory Rewrite Physics?

With my interesting in quantum computing, I have spent a lot more time than usual looking at videos like this. The people behind the greatest leaps in physics – Einstein, Newton, Heisenberg, all had the uncanny ability to see the fundamentals – see the deepest, underlying facts about the world, and from simple statements about […]

New Results in Quantum Tunneling vs. The Speed of Light

In a race, who would win: quantum tunneling or the reigning champ, the speed of light? Paradoxically, the most promising prospects for moving matter around faster than light may be to put a metaphorical brick wall in its way. New efforts in quantum tunneling – both theory and experiment – show that superluminal motion may […]

Why is Quantum Mechanics Weird?

In her efforts to demystify quantum mechanics, YouTuber Sabine Hossenfelder, has done quite a few videos on the topic. In this video she explains exactly why quantum mechanics is weird. Is it entanglement or superpositions? Schrödinger’s cats? Not quite, really. But the famous Elitzur-Vaidman Bomb Experiment demonstrates well just why quantum mechanics is weird indeed. […]
