Ever since humans have studied the skies, they have attempted to learn how the cosmos works. By the beginning of the 20th Century, relativity and later quantum mechanics have revealed that the forces governing atomic particles are strange and operate in ways that are unexpected, even counter-intuitive. Tonight on Inquiry, we talk with PAUL HALPERN, a professor of physics at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia. His latest book chronicles this millennia search for the forces that govern the universe: SYNCHRONICITY: THE EPIC QUEST TO UNDERSTAND THE QUANTUM NATURE OF CAUSE AND EFFECT.
