Description: The universe has plenty of strange and wonderful sights. There’s no need to make stuff up, really. Come with me for a journey into the subatomic world, where the behavior of matter on this tiny scale seems truly bizarre and even miraculous. We love to explore way down here in the realm of the tiny because there is so much yet to learn. And there are real, measurable, phenomena that we have no answer to “why” it happens. There are fascinating connections between the subatomic world and the cosmic scale of galaxies and black holes. Even something as common to us as gravity is still understood very poorly. Have you been wondering whether light is a particle or a wave or is dark matter a real thing? Come and find out just how easy it is to get right down to the point where one is tempted to invoke a deity as the final answer.
