The Mind Bending Story Of Quantum Physics

Quantum physics is one of the most complicated terms to understand. To put it simple, it is the physics that explain how everything works.
Quantum physics is the description we have of the nature of the particles that make up matter and the forces with which they interact.
In this documentary, we follow professor Jim Al-Khalili, as he traces the story of the most important, accurate, and yet perplexing scientific theory, the quantum physics theory.
The story starts at the beginning of the 20th century with scientists trying to better understand how light bulbs work.
This simple question soon led scientists deep into the hidden workings of matter, into the sub-atomic building blocks of the world around us. Here they discovered phenomena unlike any encountered before - a realm where things can be in many places at once, where chance and probability call the shots and where reality appears to only truly exist when we observe it.
Albert Einstein hated the idea that nature, at its most fundamental level, is governed by chance. Jim reveals how in the 1930's, Einstein thought he'd found a fatal flaw in quantum physics. This was not taken seriously until it was tested in the 1960s.
