Conversations on the Quantum World: Why Space Isn’t What You Think It Is

Published on Jul 10, 2022

Caltech Science Exchange and Innovate Pasadena present “Conversations on the Quantum World: Why Space Isn’t What You Think It Is,” a virtual discussion featuring Caltech scientists, on Tuesday, July 12, starting at 11 a.m.

In this free online event, you will hear directly from Caltech experts about the next quantum revolution and have the opportunity to ask your own questions.

Zoom in on a digital image far enough and you will discover the distinct pixels that make the picture. Could the universe itself be similarly pixelated? Caltech theoretical physicist Kathryn Zurek and experimental physicist Rana Adhikari are on the hunt for this pixelation, a signature of what is known as quantum gravity, a set of theories that attempts to unite the microscopic world of quantum physics with the macroscopic world of gravity.

In this event, they will speak with science writer Whitney Clavin about how they use innovative instrumentation and approaches to try to solve the mystery of quantum gravity.

Registration is required for this event. The first 1,000 who register can join the Zoom webinar. Others will be provided with a YouTube link.
