Event description

Description

Quantum physics is not mystifying. Its implications may be mind-bending, and not yet fully understood, but the theory is illuminating. It is the best explanation of reality we have. And no, God does not play dice with the universe.

This talk spans the history of quantum discoveries, from Einstein and Bohr to the present day, guiding you through the most intriguing subject in science.

Sean M Carroll will debunk the myths that have grown up around quantum physics, resurrect and reinstate the Many-Worlds Interpretation, and present a new path to solving the apparent conflict between quantum mechanics and gravity.

Discounted tickets are available to Members and Patrons of the Ri. Find out more about how to join our community.

The doors will open at approximately 6.30pm, with a prompt start at 7.00pm.
