This is the second of periodic pages on contemporary physics presented by the Sarasota Patriots. Look for articles on the LHC - Large Hadron Collider (our planets largest cyclotron), LIGO - Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory, (gravity wave detector), AMS - Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (anti matter & dark energy/matter detector), ITER - International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (first commercial fusion reactor) and the subjects of string theory, multiverses, and higher dimensions etc.
QUANTUM MECHANICS - understanding the very small. Does it prove Hashem?
Most of us know of Relativity or as Einstein put it, E=mc2. (mass times the speed of light squared equals energy.) It’s the simple formula for calculating / explaining of the very large and their movement in the universe - gravity, planets, galaxies, black holes etc. On the other side of the coin there is the very small and its formulary called Quantum Mechanics. That would be atoms, electrons, quarks, neutrinos etc. As was Einstein and todays physicists, they have been trying to find a formula for both. The problem is, what happens at the quantum level defies logic. Even Einstein called events “Spooky” and riddled by paradoxes.
The Video below is made for the everyday would be physicist, men and women trying just to make sense of the other side of the coin - Quantum Mechanics. It is made from easy to understand segments by renowned physicists. You'll love the animated segment. The video is 27 minutes. Relax and be mesmerized. Some say it even proves Harshem.
