In Conversation with Kishore Hari, Host, "Inquiring Minds" Podcast
Quantum mechanics is the most accurate and far-reaching theory in physics, yet physicists themselves readily admit that they don't understand it. But Caltech physicist and New York Times best-selling author Sean Carroll suggests that we do have a very promising way of understanding the mysteries of the quantum world.
Previously featured on the Colbert Report and PBS’s “NOVA,” theoretical physicist Carroll will explore quantum discoveries throughout history, unveiling how the atomic and sub-atomic worlds impact our daily lives, and giving us a whole new way of comprehending the cosmos.
