    We’ve been able to find that the universe is expanding faster than we thought. The LHC has produced the most data on one day. Good news, right?

    In quantum physics, every metric is conceived as a vector. But that’s where its relation with classical physics ends, makes teaching a pain. Teaching classical mechanics is easy because we engage with it every day in many ways. Enough successful visualization tools exist to do that. Just wondering why quantum mechanics has to be so […]
