Even though Albert Einstein (together with collaborators in the EPR Paradox paper) wanted to show that quantum mechanics must be incomplete because it was nonlocal (he didn't like "spooky action at a distance"), John Bell managed to prove that any local real hidden variable theory would have to satisfy certain simple statistical properties that quantum mechanical experiments (and the theory that describes them) violate. Since then, GHZ and...

UV cameras expose a hidden world and reveal the incompleteness of our perception The Physics Girl looks at sunscreen: https://youtu.be/GRD-xvlhGMc How to make sunscreen from scratch: https://youtu.be/lMXAY5F28L0 In summary, ultraviolet light interacts differently with matter for a number of reasons: 1. Some pigments selectively absorb UV so they may appear white in the visible but dark in the UV. The pigments usually dissipate the UV energy as heat, though the breaking of bonds can also occur. 2. Fluorescent molecules absorb UV light and re-radiate that energy as visible light. This makes them look dark in the UV but glowing under black light. 3. Ultraviolet light scatters...

The paradox of value - Akshita Agarwal

View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/the-paradox-of-value-akshita-agarwal Imagine you’re on a game show and you can choose between two prizes: a diamond … or a bottle of water. It’s an easy choice – the diamonds are more valuable. But if given the same choice when you were dehydrated in the desert, after wandering for days, would you choose differently? Why? Aren’t diamonds still more valuable? Akshita Agarwal explains the paradox of value. Lesson by Akshita Agarwal, animation by Qa'ed Mai.
