With the technology of the 20th century, humans were able to know for the first time what really happens at the depth of the skies and at the depths of the matter. And what we found looks like nothing we imagined before! Join this class to hear about what physics has to say today about reality: The world we live in, made out of swirling tiny building blocks, coming in totally identical groups out of nature's production line. A very solid reality emerging out of constant change and unpredictability - a change unceasing and omnipresent, yet visible only to our experimental devices. Join the first of the two sessions to hear about the triumph of quantum mechanics and the grandeur of elementary particles physics :) ____________________ The class is open to everyone curious about the findings and the status of modern physics. Each session will begin with a wide intro followed by a discussion on the arising questions. ________ What this class is not: It's not a discussion about new age stuff or a comparison of science to supernatural beliefs. Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too? [Douglas Adams]
