When Magic Meets Quantum Physics, a free public lecture

Nothing seems further apart than a physicist and a magician. Nevertheless, these two communities have a lot in common, both in their methodology and goals. By showing both magic tricks and physics experiments renowned physicist Thierry Giamarchi will discuss the connections between magic and science, especially in relation to the breath-taking and bizarre world of quantum mechanics, which has taken -- often without our realizing it -- so much importance in our everyday lives.

Tuesday, July 9, 7 p.m., Duane Physics, Room G1B30
