PIRSA:09080058  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Special Topic: Our World as a Hologram?
Speaker(s): Richard Epp, Sean Gryb
Abstract: Our universe has a split personality: quantum and relativity. Understanding how the two can coexist, i.e. how our universe can exist, is one of the greatest challenges facing theoretical physicists in the 21st century. The presentation focuses on a simple but mind-bending thought experiment that hin... read more
