The Great Smoky Dragon

Lecture no. 24 from the course: Quantum Mechanics

The Great Smoky Dragon

Taught by Professor Benjamin Schumacher | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

In this final lecture, you ponder John A. Wheeler's metaphor of the Great Smoky Dragon, a creature whose tail appears at the start of an experiment and whose head appears at the end. But what lies between is as uncertain as the mysterious and unknowable path of a quantum particle.
