In Out Time: The Measurement Problem In Physics

Melvyn Bragg is joined by Roger Penrose, Basil Hiley and Simon Saunders to discuss the bizarre nature of atoms and the conundrum at the heart of quantum physics

The measurement problem arises because we don’t really understand how the atoms that constitute our world behave. They are fundamentally mysterious to us, even shocking, and they defy our attempts to measure and make sense of them. Possible solutions range from the existence of multiple realities to the rather more mundane possibility of an error in our mathematics - but a solution, if found, could transform our understanding of reality.
