  NOVA: Einstein's Quantum Riddle

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 4/1/19

I have to be honest… I didn't find this to be very interesting. I like most PBS shows, but this one was truly boring and hard to understand. Perhaps if I knew more about science and history, or math, then I wouldn't find it so boring.

The only interesting parts were the modern day scientists trying to prove Einstein's theory on a cold mountain top. However, I felt that they dragged those parts out for dramatic effect too much.

If you're a real fan of math or science, you might enjoy this much more than I did. There are no features or extras on this DVD.

NOVA

EINSTEIN’S QUANTUM RIDDLE

Over the past century, scientists have made huge strides in understanding the mind-bending rules that govern the microworld of atoms and subatomic particles. But these rules, called quantum mechanics, contain one particularly bizarre, unexplained phenomenon: quantum entanglement. Imagine two subatomic particles that mirror changes in each other instantaneously over any distance without communicating. Einstein called it "spooky action at a distance" and although no one can explain how it works, scientists have already begun to harness its power. So-called quantum computing could give rise to computers that can shatter existing data encryption in minutes and use the laws of physics to create a totally secure, unhackable network. But even as researchers are poised to transform the digital world with entanglement, a few doubts about it remain, and to rule them out will take a ground-breaking experiment. NOVA takes viewers to a frigid mountaintop in the Canary Islands where physicists will use massive telescopes to catch light from quasars at opposite ends of the universe to control detectors in a record-breaking experiment that might settle the remaining questions once and for all.
