Sean Carroll: Quantum Worlds and the Emergence of Space-Time

Quantum mechanics is the most important idea in physics, and physicists themselves readily admit that they don't understand it. But Caltech physicist and New York Times best-selling author Sean Carroll suggests that we do have a very promising way of understanding the mysteries of the quantum world.

Carroll takes us on a journey through the most intriguing subject in science, exploring quantum discoveries from Einstein to the present day, demonstrating how this atomic and subatomic world impacts our daily lives, and giving us a whole new way of understanding the cosmos.
