- Spooky Quantum Physics Demonstration Tonight: How to Watch Live
Dive headlong into the weird world of quantum mechanics tonight (Oct. 1) with Harvard physics professor Subir Sachdev who will explain the link between the strange phenomena of spooky quantum entanglement and the wonder of weightless levitation made possible by superconductors. You can watch a live webcast on Live Science of Sachdev's presentation at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Canada, tonight at 7 p.m. EDT, where he will discuss ongoing research with high-temperature superconductivity and will also perform a demonstration of superconductor levitation. "What I hope people will take away is some understanding of what quantum mechanics is really about and why it's so important," Sachdev said in a video trailer for the presentation. Sachdev will focus on how a greater understanding of the bizarre nature of quantum entanglement can lead to more-practical superconductors, which are materials through which electricity can flow without resistance.
