Event poster. Speaker Chris Ferrie, Associate Professor, University of Technology Sydney

Although most of us don't actually understand quantum physics, we know that it's mystical and awesome, and if we understood it we'd probably be rich and beautiful and happy, right? After all, there are plenty of people out there trying to sell you quantum crystals to align your quantum energy with your quantum destiny. Can they all be wrong? Yes, yes they can. In this talk, we're going to sniff out the bullshit and break down why it stinks while dispelling the mystery of the quantum.
