The idea of quantum mechanics is fairly new to the science community and I think its safe to say that this new set of theory’s and principles took the community by surprise. In our normal lives we can understand certain things like dropping a piece of glass on the floor and the outcome being the glass breaking, it was thought that these simple laws applied to everything in nature. When we entered the 20th century we realized we were sadly mistaken about our previous beliefs. This is when the Quantum theory was brought to the attention of all the major physicist and scientist of the era. When the idea first appeared it was widely disputed and resented by everyone because it showed that allot of the laws thought to be true were actually false. We are going to discuss a few of the may controversial things that Quantum Mechanics show to be true.
Max Plank brought Quantum Mechanics to attention with the Quantum hypothesis in 1900. This essentially paved the way for other scientist to expound upon the controversial subject. The first major stepping stone was the discovery of photons and Albert Einstein’s hypothesis that light is made of individual quantum particles. As time progresses we begin to realize that these theory’s are applicable to many other fields of science such as chemical structure of elements and bonding of said elements.
One of the most complex and unimaginable possibilities through Quantum mechanics is the ability to teleport from one place to another. As much as it seems like strictly science fiction, such things have been achieved. Although only with small photons, scientists have been able to transport small light particles over 80 miles. On the Canary Islands researchers were able to successfully transport a photon from one island to another using quantum entanglement. Quantum entanglement is the idea that “the quantum states of two or more objects have to be described with reference to each other, even though the...
