Leonard Susskind: Quantum Complexity Inside Black Holes

Leonard Susskind: Quantum Complexity Inside Black Holes

| December 6, 2014 | 0 Comments

In this talk recorded back in October Leonard Susskind talks about the astonishing connection between the geometry of space time in black holes and quantum mechanics. According to Susskind, we are living in the golden age of quantum mechanics, when a lot of amazing research is being done. Quantum entanglement, for example has recently played […]

RI: Dark Matter’s Not Enough

The universe seems to be, for the most part, governed by rules that we can understand with some effort. However, there are exceptions, such as the elusive dark matter and dark energy. According to Andrew Pontzen, lecturer at UCL, the strangest thing in the universe is not dark energy or dark matter, but, rather, that our cosmos […]

Emily Costello, age 22, has recently graduated with BsC in physics, however, she is not your ordinary physics student — her path did not always appear to lead to life in science. Throughout her youth she has written music and songs as well as plays and poetry. Art, however, in the eyes of Ms Costello […]

In this video from the Perimeter Institute public lecture series, Dr Nima Arkani-Hamed discusses our understanding of quantum mechanics and the physics of spacetime and how this understanding will likely evolve in the 21st century. This includes a detailed discussion of how we arrived to where we are now and what major obstacles must be […]

Two years ago the elusive Higgs Boson was finally detected by the ATLAS and CMS experiments. Now, when the detection has been confirmed many times and the prizes have been awarded, we can look back and ponder about the role that the Higgs plays in the Standard Model. In this video Dr Pippa Wells, who was the Inner […]

SETI: Close Encounters With Comets

| November 10, 2014 | 0 Comments

In this SETI talk Dr. Peter Jenniskens gives an update on what we know about the comet Siding Spring (which passed Mars on October 19). Jekkinskens also covers the famous meteor shower that accompanied the close passage of the red planet and was detected by several spacecrafts orbiting Mars. Finally, other famous close encounters with comets are discussed. […]

Our Mathematical Universe

Our Mathematical Universe

Why is mathematics so spectacularly successful at describing how the universe works? In this talk MIT physics professor Max Tegmark proposes a radical answer: our physical world is not only described by mathematics, but that it is mathematics or, more specifically, it’s a mathematical structure. A natural question then, of course, is what does this tell us […]

Quantum Entanglement and Superconductivity

Quantum Entanglement and Superconductivity

| October 29, 2014 | 0 Comments

In this talk at the Perimeter Institute Dr. Subir Sachdev presents the topic of quantum entanglement and its role in the physics of superconductivity. In particular, Dr. Sachdev will discuss the frontiers in the experimental study of high temperature superconductivity and how it is connected to the bizarre quantum behaviour in black holes. For more high […]
