To reconcile quantum mechanics and gravity, a new theory flips the usual script. Space-time and gravity may emerge from quantum effects, not the other way round
As physicists extend the 19th-century laws of thermodynamics to the quantum realm, they're rewriting the relationships among energy, entropy and information. The post What Happens When You Mix Thermodynamics and the Quantum World? A Revolution appeared first on WIRED.
