This month’s Science title


What is real? : the unfinished quest for the meaning of quantum physics

by Becker, Adam

Quantum mechanics explains why the sun shines and how your eyes can see; it’s the theory behind the LEDs in your phone and the nuclear hearts of space probes. But ask a physicist what quantum physics means, and the result will be a brawl. What does it mean for something to be real? Becker brings to vivid life the brave researchers whose quest for the truth led them to challenge Bohr– and paid dearly, their reputations, careers, and sometimes lives ruined completely. A gripping story of the high cost of pursuit of scientific truth.
