What is quantum entanglement? Physicist explains Einstein’s ‘frightening action at a distance’

When two particles are entangled, the state of one is linked to the state of the other. Quantum entanglement is a phenomenon in which the quantum states of two or more objects become correlated, meaning that the state of one object can affect the state of others even though the objects are separated by large …

QUAY: Stay in your lane, Physicist. The universe is not gay

“[T]universe is actually super queer,” says self-proclaimed “black, Mexican, queer, neurodivergent” physicist Dr. Jessica Esquivel at the start of her Recent TedX discussion. And it only gets worse from there. She goes on to say that quantum theory describes “a world where homosexuality and chaos reign supreme.” According to blue-haired Esquivel, the wave particle phenomenon …

Physicist Sabine Hossenfelder: “There are quite a few areas where physics merges with religion”

Sabine Hossenfelder is a German theoretical physicist who writes books and runs a YouTube channel (with 618,000 subscribers at the time of writing) called Science Without the Gobbledygook. Born in Frankfurt, she studied mathematics at Goethe Universität and later focused on particle physics. His PhD explored the possibility of the Large Hadron Collider producing microscopic …
