Quantum physics is often thought of as abstract, exotic, and a little bit freaky. While classical physics gives us sensible laws governing the macroscopic world—why a ball rolls downhill and how a plane flies—quantum physics gives us particles that are actually waves, “spooky” action at a distance, and Schrodinger’s unlucky cat. The subatomic world is a shifty, uncertain place. But never fear, physicist Chad Orzel is here to unpack the quantum weirdness.
-Try our subatomic cocktail of the night, the Uncertainty Principle
At the next Secret Science Club, developmental biologist Ruth Lehmann explores the mysterious lives of cells and their role in reproduction. She asks:
--What's up in the embryo? How and when do germ cells form?
--In what ways are these "immortal" cells radically different from other cells in the body?
--How do germ cells get romanced into making eggs and sperm? Is there a matchmaking molecule?
