On the microscopic scale the universe behaves in a weird and wonderful way quite contrary to our everyday experience. Objects can be in two places at the same time, cats can be both alive and dead, particles can tunnel through barriers, and randomness governs everything.
Quantum physicist Dr Jacob Dunningham gives a brief introduction to the rules of the quantum world discusses how scientists are using these to develop incredible new technologies that could revolutionise our world and change the way we perceive reality.
