The Origin of Quantum Mechanics Explained in Four Animated Minutes

Minute Physics promises to bring you “cool physics and other sweet science – all in a minute!” In this case, they went a little longer and produced an animated video that gives you “The Origin of Quantum Mechanics” in four minutes. But cut them a little slack, it’s a big subject.

Minute Physics provides the drawings, and the voice narrating the clip belongs to Neil Turok, one of the world’s leading physicists and the Director of Canada’s Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics. He has also previously taught at Princeton and Cambridge. A second video featuring Turok — “Real World Telekinesis”  — appears right below:
