You may have heard of Schrödinger’s Cat, but do you understand its strange predicament? We have known about the weirdness of Schrödinger’s quantum world for more than a century now. Quantum theory tells us there is a whole reality outside our day-to-day experience: the atoms that make up your body are able to exist in two or more places at once, and can even use quantum entanglement to influence each other from across the universe. Then there is “quantum uncertainty”, which may explain our very existence.

Although it is strange and entirely counter-intuitive, we are now putting quantum theory to work, and creating quantum computers, secret quantum codes protected by the laws of physics, and even a quantum internet. In this talk, Michael Brooks will explain the origins and oddities of quantum physics, and why scientists now believe there is far, far more to this world than meets the eye.

Michael Brooks, who holds a PhD in quantum physics, is a journalist and broadcaster. He is physics consultant to New Scientist magazine, co-host of the award-winning podcast Science(ish), and the author of numerous books, including The Quantum Astrologer’s Handbook and the bestselling 13 Things That Don’t Make Sense.
