Here’s a Wednesday Science Break about gravity and why quantum physics still can’t explain it. Maybe the question ICP should be asking is “Gravity How Does It Work?” In a classical universe, if we knew all the positions and velocities for all particles, we could predict the future and the past. Quantum mechanics is not […]

What is it about mathematics that it can describe so accurately the world around us? In this talk that straddles the border of hard science and philosophy, Sabine Hossenfelder explains. From quantum physics, the very smallest features and forces of the foundations of matter and energy, to cosmology, the very largest structures and forces of […]
