Bridges 2015: a meeting of maths and art - in pictures
The Bridges Conference is an annual event that explores the connections between art and mathematics. Here is a selection of the work being exhibited this year, from a Pi pie which vibrates the number pi onto your hand to delicate paper structures demonstrating number sequences.
An Easy Explanation of the Basics of Quantum Mechanics for Dummies
Next time when a physics professor says that the probability of your position at any given time, in the whole universe, is never zero, don't think he has lost his marbles. This is where we can start with an explanation of the basics of quantum mechanics for dummies.
Quantum Physics Visualized
I wish that Julian Voss-Andreae had made some of these sculptures when I was in school. While we can't really claim that they represent quantum physics concepts accurately, they still would've made reading about Bosons and Fermions more pleasant.

Have We Been Interpreting Quantum Mechanics Wrong This Whole Time?
For nearly a century, “reality” has been a murky concept. The laws of quantum physics seem to suggest that particles spend much of their time in a ghostly state, lacking even basic properties such as a definite location and instead existing everywhere and nowhere at once. Only when a particle is measured does it suddenly […]
The first ever photograph of light as both a particle and wave
(Phys.org)—Light behaves both as a particle and as a wave. Since the days of Einstein, scientists have been trying to directly observe both of these aspects of light at the same time. Now, scientists at EPFL have succeeded in capturing the first-ever snapshot of this dual behavior.
Solving Biology's Mysteries Using Quantum Mechanics
The new field of quantum biology applies the craziness of quantum physics to biology's most fundamental processes
This could lead to future interstellar communication.
Physicists offer the best evidence to date that quantum entanglement exists, and the quantum world is free of the constraints of local realism.
Time Might Only Exist in Your Head, Say Physicists
Out of all the pressures we face in our everyday lives, there’s no denying that the nature of time has the most profound effect. As our days, weeks, months, and years go by, time moves from past to present to future, and never the other way around.
Scientists Discover a Jewel at the Heart of Quantum Physics
Physicists have discovered a jewel-shaped geometric object that challenges the notion that space, time and particles are fundamental constituents of nature.
