Join us for a monthly webinar series, ASK A PHYSICIST, with renowned physicists Paul Davies, Sara Walker and Maulik Parikh from the Beyond Center. 

August's webinar: ‘What happens to an atom when somebody looks?’

Einstein once asked whether the moon still exists when nobody is looking. According to quantum mechanics, ghostly uncertainty at the atomic level is projected into concrete reality when a definite measurement is made. But observers - and the moon - are made of atoms. So what, precisely, conjures everyday reality out of quantum fuzziness?
