The World of Quantum Mechanics Explained ~ An Animated Guide

“Spooky, bizarre and mind-boggling are all understatements when it comes to quantum physics. Things in the subatomic world of quantum mechanics defy all logic of our macroscopic world. Particles can actually tunnel through walls, appear out of thin air and disappear, stay entangled and choose to behave like waves.

According to Niels Bohr, the father of the orthodox ‘Copenhagen Interpretation’ of quantum physics, “Anyone who is not shocked by quantum theory has not understood it”. Richard Feynman, one of the founders of quantum field theory remarked, “I think I can safely say that nobody understands quantum theory”.

Quantum mechanics deals with the study of particles at the atomic and subatomic levels. The term was coined by Max Born in 1924. Though the theory works to provide accurate predictions of phenomena at the subatomic scales, there is no real understanding of why it works, what it really means or what implications it has for our world picture. Ergo, the best we can do is present you with the central mystery at the heart of quantum mechanics and show you the way its theoretical structure works to provide real world predictions. Once you decide to go down the rabbit hole, the wonderland of quantum physics, will keep you enthralled forever.”
