Secrets of Quantum Physics

Watch now – this video will only be available on Wondrium until June 8th.

Professor Jim Al-Khalili reveals how Einstein thought he'd found a fatal flaw in quantum physics that implies that subatomic particles can communicate faster than light. The host of "The Amazing World of Gravity" and "Everything and Nothing" shows how robins navigate using quantum entanglement, how our sense of smell is touched by quantum vibrations, and how physics might play a role in evolution.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Heavy on analogies, but short on proofs... I watched this, because it's going away in a week. I know it's underwhelming to say, but it's a good 2-part series to watch, for a decent low-level flyby of a big problem. A couple of issues I had (1st episode): 1) He didn't know what John Bell's "Helium Problem" was, and didn't investigate. He admits he still didn't know, decades later. I would guess that Bell meant why there's around 1/3 of He-3 in the universe than predicted. That may've been solved in 2006, where Eggleton (of LLNL) and others postulated that large stars absorbed their He-3 deep in the core, and it was broken down. 2) He talked about the "Bell Test," and wrote the equation, but didn't explain why the 3rd uncertainty was SUBTRACTED (it turned out to be a negative value), when the other three were ADDED (they were positive.)b Other than that, he did a great job of using visual aids to explain difficult concepts in both episodes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Professor Jim takes a very difficult subject and makes it easier to understand with all the examples he uses. I now have a better basic understanding of quantum physics and it effects on so many aspects of life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Explanations I have seen Presenter gives the best explanations of the various experiments (about Quantum Mechanics) I have seen to date. Also his analogies are very good, especially about the conflict between Einstein and the Copenhagen Interpretation. Note this is a 2014 BBC product. I had no issues with audio/video synchronization. Minor issues with CC.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Audio / Video problems Throughout the videos (Episodes 1 and 2) the audio/video fell out of sync. Whereas the information was quite good the sync problem made viewing the video somewhat difficult.
