Quantum mechanics is perhaps the most accurate theory devised, and yet it’s one of the most subtle and difficult to understand. Why exactly is that? Today we’ll talk to Dr. Ed Hach, Assistant Professor of Physics at the Rochester Institute of Technology, about quantum mechanics and why it happens to be so strange. In the second half we’ll talk about the difficulty of combining quantum theory with another well established theory, general relativity.
