Bend it like Quantum (Mechanics)

An interesting read, where Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle is intelligently sidestepped. And don’t you love it when concepts like “weak measurement” make their way into physics?

The way I see it – this is how statistics (in this instance, averages), which is a mind-meld of mathematics and art, (sorry for the elvish/ trekkie imagery!) pulls one over science.

Quantum mechanics rule ‘bent’ in classic experiment.


Dark Matter – Explained, Animated

This is a simply brilliant video combining PHDcomics’ art and two serious physicists’ explanation of what “Dark Matter” is. It is nice to see brilliant physicists being humble – puts life and universe in some perspective.
