Professor Jim Al-Khalili reveals how Einstein thought he'd found a fatal flaw in quantum physics that implies that subatomic particles can communicate faster than light. He discusses how robins navigate using quantum entanglement, how our sense of smell is touched by ethereal quantum vibrations, and even how physics might play a role in evolution.
Albert Einstein hated the idea that nature, at its most fundamental level, is governed by chance. Professor Jim Al-Khalili reveals how, in the 1930s, Einstein thought he'd found a fatal flaw in quantum physics because it implies that subatomic particles can communicate faster than light in defiance of the theory of relativity.Sprache: English Laufzeit: 59 Minuten
Physicist Jim Al-Khalili routinely deals with the strangest subject in all of science - quantum physics, the astonishing and perplexing theory of sub-atomic particles. But now he's turning his attention to the world of nature. Can quantum mechanics explain the greatest mysteries in biology?Sprache: English Laufzeit: 59 Minuten
