Episode #3 with Dr. Alex May

Have you ever wondered what “quantum physics” really means? What do theoretical physicists actually do? What type of chalk do they prefer when they confer at the blackboard? We discuss these questions and more with Dr. Alex May, a theoretical physicist and post-doctoral fellow at Stanford. He tells us about the theories that physicists use to understand the basic rules that govern the universe, specifically how quantum mechanics can be used to understand the force of gravity. Listen along as Dr. May takes us through his research into the fundamental principles of life!
