Reality If space isn't what we thought it was then what is it In Spooky Action at a Distance George Musser sets out to answer that uestion offering a provocative exploration of nonlocality and a celebration of the scientists who are trying to explain it Musser guides us on an epic journey into the lives of experimental physicists observing particles acting in tandem astronomers finding galaxies that look statistically identical and cosmologists hoping to unravel the paradoxes surrounding the big bang He traces the often contentious debates over nonlocality through major discoveries and disruptions of the twentieth century and shows how scientists faced with the same undisputed experimental evidence develop wildly different explanations for that evidence Their conclusions challenge our un. Very good book which delves into modern physics both uantum entanglement and locality To do that the author starts with an accessible history of these and related concepts When he comes back to the present focus the going gets tougher and strangerPartly that s because we don t have the answers One major point is that science is about debate with the most progress made by discussion between champions of ideas In this book the author mentions some of those champions and the ebb and flow of their cases and that can reuire a deeper understanding of physics than I possessThe author does attempt to put these ideas in easier terms and freuently returns to earlier metaphors with new wrinkles In the earlier part of the book this works very well For an excellent explanation of Einstein s Spooky Action at a Distance this can t be beat Another major plus is the excellent bibliographyIn conclusion there s no consensus yet I plan to read about gravitational waves before returning to reread this book and possibly expand my review Until then a solid 4 stars Out of Bounds (Boundaries, uestion offering a provocative exploration of nonlocality and a celebration of the scientists who are trying to explain it Musser guides Grass, Sky, Song us on an epic journey into the lives of experimental physicists observing particles acting in tandem astronomers finding galaxies that look statistically identical and cosmologists hoping to Otter Chaos!

Spooky Action at a Distance

What is space It isn't a uestion that most of us normally ask Space is the venue of physics; it's where things exist where they move and take shape Yet over the past few decades physicists have discovered a phenomenon that operates outside the confines of space and time nonlocality the ability of two particles to act in harmony no matter how far apart they may be It appears to be almost magical Einstein grappled with this oddity and couldn't come to terms with it describing it as spooky action at a distance More recently the mystery has deepened as other forms of nonlocality have been uncovered This strange occurrence which has direct connections to black holes particle collisions and even the workings of gravity holds the potential to undermine our most basic understandings of physical. This book provides a great summary of the work being done in the area of nonlocality Musser offers an extremely clear and relatable explanation of the problems involved in trying to reconcile uantum physics with relativity Can spacetime be boiled down to entanglement in fields Is it the entanglement of fields that gave rise to the entanglement of particles if you can call them particles that make up everything we know How can we understand both space and time in a accurate way The description of this book uses the word mind bending and rightfully so This is a great book to listen to great narration while imagining the strange nature of the universe in which we live

Derstanding of not only space and time but also the origins of the universe and they suggest a new grand unified theory of physics Delightfully readable Spooky Action at a Distance is a mind bending voyage to the frontiers of modern physics that will change the way we think about realityLong listed for the 2016 PENE O Wilson Literary Science Writing Award“An important book that provides insight into key new developments in our understanding of the nature of space time and the universe It will repay careful study” John Gribbin The Wall Street Journal “An endlessly surprising foray into the current mother of physics' many knotty mysteries the solving of which may unveil the weirdness of uantum particles black holes and the essential unity of nature” Kirkus Reviews starred review. A consistent mindfuck I love science books that make me feel as if I m peering into the abyss There s no better nor darker abyss than uantum nonlocality and entanglement and how they suggest that space is emergent and not a fundamental building block of nature I hope one day we ll discover how to jump from point to point thanks to a mix of nonlocality and entanglement to avoid that whole travelling thing which makes the nearest star too far away However this is one abyss of which we might never be euipped to imagine our way out

    Well hm Not a book for novices in the subject matters of either uantum or Einsteinian physics although the author is uite good at not putting anything in math Reading some pop sci one can almost sense the pain of the scie

    This book begins with the spooky action at a distance aka nonlocality that's been part of physics since Newton ie gravity When Isaac Newton first inserted a gravitational constant into his euation for universal gravitation he was accused of incorporating occult magic into the study of physics But his euations correctly described the path of orbiting planets and falling apples so we all got used to the conceptThen electricity and

    Albert Einstein used the term “spooky action at a distance” to refer to the way that according to uantum theory particles that have once interacted with one another remain in some sense “entangled” even when they are far apart Poke one particle in the right uantum mechanical way and the other particle jumps instantly even

    This is a book that really makes two distinct argumentsThe first is about science and it's basically the history

    far than a primer or introduction into nonlocality uantum entanglement and relativity george musser's spooky action at a distance so named for einstein's uote relating to uantum mechanics is a fascinating at times challenging exploration of modern physics musser an award winning science writer offers a thorough history of physics through the centuries arriving at the present moment when we're still attempting

    Ah uantum Mechanics uantum Gravity and Field Theory all get discussed here while exploring the phenomenon of uantum Entanglement This isn’t some dumbed down Physicis book Which is why I only understood about 70% of it But having said that I learned a good bit reading this one
