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:
