What is Real? The Unfinished Quest for the Meaning of Quantum Physics

Quantum physics powers the cell phones in our pockets and the sun in our sky. It’s our most successful theory of the world. But there’s a hole at the heart of the theory: we don’t really understand what quantum physics is saying about the nature of reality. Physicists have debated this for over ninety years, and the story of that debate, — which astrophysicist and author Dr. Adam Becker tells — reveals a fascinating human side of the scientific enterprise. If you’re not a scientist, but you want to understand quantum physics, or you like reading about science and the people behind it, you won’t want to miss this presentation.
