Our best theory of gravity no longer belongs to Isaac Newton. It’s Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity. There’s just one problem: it is incompatible with quantum theory. The effort to tie the two together provides the greatest challenge to physics in the 21st century.
The winning and shortlisted films of the Quantum Shorts 2020/21 festival has been announced. “Quantum Shorts makes a big ask: to produce a compelling short film that also connects with the complex science of quantum physics,” said the judges. “The diverse and creative films that made this year’s shortlist have different strengths in how they respond to this challenge.” Watch the shortlisted films now.
