Quantum superposition challenges our notions of what is real.
The difference between predictions and observations of the magnetic properties of muons suggests a mystery for the Standard Model.
The quantum world — and its inherent uncertainty — defies our ability to describe it in words.
Quantum mechanics has taught us that even empty space contains energy. "Negative energy" is the state of having less energy than empty space.
There could be variables beyond the ones we've identified and know how to measure. But they can't get rid of quantum weirdness.
Every proton contains three quarks: two up and one down. But charm quarks, heavier than the proton itself, have been found inside. How?
A concept known as "wave-particle duality" famously applies to light. But it also applies to all matter — including you.
Its implications go well beyond the Earth itself, affecting even the future of space travel.
Light carries with it the secrets of reality in ways we cannot completely understand.
Perhaps wormholes will no longer be relegated to the realm of science fiction.
Like Dua Lipa, he had to create new rules.
The quantum world is one in which rules that are completely foreign to our everyday experience dictate bizarre behavior.
Maybe the brain isn't "classical" after all.
Realizing that matter and energy are quantized is important, but quantum particles aren't the full story; quantum fields are needed, too.
There's the textbook answer, then there's the real answer.
Maybe our understanding of quantum entanglement is incomplete, or maybe there is something fundamentally unique about consciousness.
Does it have a deeper significance — or is it just a number?
Quantum entanglement may remain spooky, but it has a very practical side.
We are not yet at the point where quantum communications can be deployed to secure the internet, but we might not be far off.
One award was for a medical procedure that incapacitated thousands of people.
Einstein always loses in the quantum realm.
Before we discovered gravitational waves, multi-messenger astronomy got its start with light and particles arriving from the same event.
