Talk to explore tiny world where the laws of physics don’t apply
The Yale Science Diplomats will examine a world “so incredibly tiny that the normal rules of physics don’t apply” at the next installment in the group’s Science in the News series on Tuesday, May 27 at the New Haven Free Public Library, 133 Elm St.
Titled “Entangled Information: How the quantum world can shape our future,” the lecture will take place 6:30-7:30 p.m. It is free and open to the public.
“In this ‘quantum world’ the science fiction of teleportation suddenly becomes a reality. If we built a quantum computer, we would be able to solve hard problems we could never solve before,” write the student organizers, who invite people to “come learn how this science of tiny things is shaping our future.”
Yale Science Diplomats is a group of graduate students dedicated to deconstructing complex scientific topics and explaining them in a way that is easy to understand; to making science fun and accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds; and to providing people with a better understanding of the science underpinning many of the complex issues in the news every day.
