What Every Dog Should Know About Quantum Physics

Dr. Chad Orzel - Union College

February 9, 2016

Quantum physics, the science of extremely small things like atoms and subatomic particles, is one of the best tested theories in the history of science, and also one of the most bizarre. Many of its predictions - particles that behave like waves, cats that are alive and dead at the same time, objects that pass through barriers as if they weren't even there - seem more like science fiction than science fact. In this talk I'll explain the reality behind some of the stranger aspects of quantum physics, and why it is so important that even dogs should know about it.
