Jun 12, 2013 — Science is often accused of extinguishing our enchantment with the world, of being too cold and rational. Quite the opposite is true, says Marcelo Gleiser. Modern science has restored a sense of wonder to the world with its revelations of objects unseen and realities unknown.
May 29, 2013 — Can we act backwards in time? We can if we're talking about the world of quantum particles! It seems that the human mind plays a role in this time puzzle, too. Our role may even have something to do with why the universe exists.
May 8, 2013 — Physicist Marcelo Gleiser recalls his early interest in competing interpretations of the quantum world. Now a successful researcher in his own right, he wonders if it's time to switch gears and turn his casual interest into a professional pursuit.
May 1, 2013 — How do you explain it when unseen forces act across time and space? The fact is that reality is far stranger than we can suppose when we step into the quantum world. Physicist Marcelo Gleiser lays out the bones of this modern ghost story.
Apr 24, 2013 — The quantum world is mysterious. It behaves in ways that just don't match up with what we see in the larger world. Commentator Marcelo Gleiser probes the space between what we see and what we know in search of a bridge between both realities.
Jan 23, 2013 — Reality is stranger than fiction; this is certainly the case within the quantum world, where objects can be in two places at the same time. Experiments confirm this can also be true for large molecules. The next step is to try it with living beings.
Oct 17, 2012 — This year's Nobel Prize in physics celebrates amazing experiments that have the potential to elucidate some of Nature's deepest secrets. They also and have the potential to lead us down the path to a world transformed by revolutionary quantum applications.
Oct 15, 2012 — These days I am kinda, sorta, maybe coming to think that until we understand Quantum Mechanics we may not understand much at all.
Jun 6, 2012 — Can we explain the origin of all things from nothing? First we need to understand what nothing means and how the human mind creates.
Jun 5, 2012 — The Uncertainty Principle says that at some level the world turns fuzzy and the idea of properties as perfectly objective, knowable attributes gets inherently fuzzy.
