Title: Quantum Physics
Post by: ZOldDude on February 09, 2007, 02:41:10 am
Nice animation to try to explain a very strange question.

What do you think?

Yes, it's very odd. But probably just because we aren't used to it or because it's different to most common things.

People are also working on Quantum Computers. With one of those anyone will be able to decrypt any encryption. Hack into any bank account in the world etc. But right now they're only able to add basic numbers.

Wonder why normal watching (with the eyes) isn't enough. Ok the brain doesn't register it, because the electrons are too small, but they are still there (say you zoom or similar). Wouldn't that mean that the whole thing would change back from interference waves if someone with zoom eyes looked at it. Or zoomed a ultimate-qual picture afterwards.

However, I doubt electrons can be seen no matter the zoom. Atoms can be seen though.

So why DOES the act of measuring it change it?
