This Week's PhiDiP - Thursday, Oct. 1 @ 12:15PM

It's week two of our Quantum Mechanics series, and we have a few articles to get you prepped for our discussion this week on the various Interpretations of Quantum Mechanics. Also, I've included an article from Julia about Archaea (which we touched on when discussing the possibilities of astrobiology) in case anyone wants to dig a little deeper there.

"Tom's Top 10 interpretations of quantum mechanics"
This article briefly goes over 10 (you guessed it) interpretations of QM and includes links to scholarly articles and other resources for each interpretation listed. A good place to start!

"How Quantum Suicide Works"
A longer article covering the Copenhagen interpretation, with links, in very accessible language. Nice one, Alex!

"Do parallel universes really exist?"
Another one from Alex, this article (with videos and links) is on the Many Worlds interpretation.

šŸŒŸ"The Most Embarrassing Graph in Modern Physics"
Just for fun, here are the results of a poll taken of modern quantum physicists to see which interpretation they "prefer." VERY interesting... ;)

And last, but not least:
"Archaea Are More Wonderful Than You Know"
A fairly in-depth take on Archaea and the implications of their biology. Enjoy!

See you this Thursday, Oct. 1 @ 12:15PM in NC 3405!
