The school building will be closed until at least April 5th, and likely longer, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. You should have received an email from me on 3/25. Be sure to read it.
Bored and looking for an interesting TV show that includes some quantum mechanics?
We recently discussed two main interpretations of quantum mechanics - the Copenhagen interpretation and Everett's Many-Worlds interpretation.
There is a third interpretation called the de Broglie-Bohm Pilot Wave interpretation. Learn about it by watching this PBS SpaceTime video.
Then check out this new TV show, called Devs, which you can find on Hulu. (If you want to; you don't have to!) You'll hear discussion of the various interpretations of QM in the series. The show is interesting, and dramatic, and eerie. If you check it out, let me know what you think. :)
