With a subtitle of Revealing Our Weird and Wired Future, Quantum Tamers takes us to 16 cities in six countries and into the minds of some of the world’s most brilliant scientists to reveal some of the magic and mystery behind quantum physics.
While studies of the perplexing activities of atoms and subatomic particles have brought a wealth of discoveries and innovations – ranging from lasers to MRIs to DVDs – the talking heads of Quantum Tamers, including Stephen Hawking and quantum teleportation expert Anton Zeilinger, tell us, in more scientific terms, ‘we ain’t seen nothin’ yet.’
File under scintillating science.
