Film Night - November: Quantum Riddle - Quantum Entanglement
Monday 25 Nov, 2019 at 20:00Hrs
Venue: Stardome Observatory
Speaker/Host: Gavin Logan

This months film is a 2019 Documentary on Quantum Entanglement.
Einstein called it “spooky action at a distance,” but today quantum entanglement is poised to revolutionize technology from computers to cryptography. Physicists have gradually become convinced that the phenomenon—two subatomic particles that mirror changes in each other instantaneously over any distance—is real. But a few doubts remain. This documentary follows a ground-breaking experiment in the Canary Islands to use quasars at opposite ends of the universe to once and for all settle remaining questions. 

This Film is 1 hour 10 minutes long and will be the only film shown at this Film Night.
