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
