New Scientist — Why Quantum is Relative

Quantum weirdness isn’t weird – if we accept objects don’t exist We can grasp the truth about the quantum world, as long as we abandon our most cherished assumption about what’s real and what’s not Further details here

Science et Vie — The whole universe would have originated from a Planck star

Where does our Universe come from? To this fundamental question, if any, the physicist Carlo Rovelli provides an answer based on a theory that attempts to unify Einstein’s general relativity with quantum mechanics: it would come from a Planck star, a tiny star born during a rebound … from a previous universe. Further details here. …

phys.org: Testing Quantum Gravity with Non-Gaussianity

An international team of experts, led by the University of Nottingham, have demonstrated that only quantum and not classical gravity could be used to create a certain informatic ingredient that is needed for quantum computation. Their research “Non-Gaussianity as a signature of a quantum theory of gravity” has been published today in PRX Quantum. Please see the article …

New Scientist: Making sense of quantum theory

In this online event, Carlo Rovelli tells the extraordinary story of quantum physics and reveals its deep meaning: a world made of substances is replaced by a world made of relations, each particle responding to another in a never ending game of mirrors. Please see further details here (EVENT HAS ENDED).
