James Kakalios “The Amazing Story of Quantum Mechanics”
November 25th, 2010
Let me ask you what you know about quantum mechanics. Nothing, you say? Well, you may not be able to explain the science, but you use quantum mechanics every day, if you use a DVD player, a laptop, a cell phone, an iPod, or any of hundreds of other devices.
University of Minnesota physicist James Kakalios doesn’t mind if you don’t quite grasp all the scientific nuance — he just wants you to appreciate how awe-inspiring this science really is, as seen through the lens of everyday life.
