Anyone can understand quantum mechanics - Part 3

On the left Walter White from Breaking Bad. On the right: Heisenberg in front of a blackboard full of equations

Before we begin, HAVE YOU WATCHED THE VIDEO “ANYONE CAN QUANTUM”??? Paul Rudd, Keanu Reeves, Stephen Hawking, Quantum Chess, Quantum Physics for Babies, and even tardigrades: this video has it all!

Detecting Gravitational Waves. Can Quantum Mechanics Help?

Massive bodies warp spacetime

Secrets can be very hard to keep. The thought of having to wait five months to be able to talk about what is arguably the biggest scientific discovery in a century is incomprehensible. But for every member of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC), it was absolutely essential that nobody let the cat out the bag (or should that be box?).
