The 8 Best Documentaries About Quantum Physics

Quantum physics governs the universe on the tiniest of scales.

At this scale, objects pop in and out of existence, and things over here can affect others over there instantaneously—without anything crossing the space between them.

Quantum mechanics may be counterintuitive, but it’s one of the most successful theories in the history of science, making predictions that have been repeatedly confirmed.

1. The Mind Bending Story Of Quantum Physics

Professor Jim Al-Khalili traces the story of arguably the most important, accurate, and yet perplexing scientific theory ever: quantum physics.

2. The Fabric of the Cosmos: What Is Space?

Physicist and best-selling author Brian Greene takes you on a journey that bends the rules of human experience and the fabric of the cosmos.

3. Athene’s Theory of Everything

The fascinating story of how new developments in neuroscience and a solution to currently unsolved problems in physics could profoundly change how we see life, death, and the origins of the universe.

4. Quantum Entanglement: Atomic Physics And Reality

The story of the long-standing debate between Niels Bohr and Albert Einstein regarding the validity of the quantum mechanical description of atomic phenomena and observation of quantum states with respect to the uncertainty principle and quantum entanglement.

5. Einstein’s Quantum Riddle

Einstein called it “spooky action at a distance,” but today quantum entanglement is poised to revolutionize technology from computers to cryptography. Physicists have gradually become convinced that the phenomenon—two subatomic particles that mirror changes in each other instantaneously over any distance—is real.

6. Atom: The Illusion of Reality

Al-Khalili explores how studying the atom forced us to rethink the nature of reality itself, encountering ideas that seem like they are from science fiction but in fact are a central part of modern science.

7. What The Bleep Do We Know?

A rather fascinating documentary that explores the spiritual connection between quantum physics and consciousness, which has been criticized because many of the ideas can’t be scientifically proven.

8. The Quantum Activist

Dr. Amit Goswami, Ph.D, a pioneer of this revolutionary new perspective within science shares with us his vision of the unlimited potential of consciousness as the ground of all being, and how this revelation can actually help us to live better.
