mp3: http://bit.ly/oRYyiV A musical investigation into the nature of atoms and subatomic particles, the jiggly things that make up everything we see. Featuring Morgan Freeman, Stephen Hawking, Michio Kaku, Brian Cox, Richard Feynman, and Frank Close.
"The Quantum World" is the eleventh installment in the ongoing Symphony of Science music video series. Materials used in the creation of this video are from:
Richard Feynman - Fun to Imagine BBC Visions of the Future - the Quantum Revolution Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman Into the Universe with Stephen Hawking Brian Cox TED Talk BBC What Time is it BBC Wonders of the Universe BBC Horizon - What Is Reality
Special thanks to everybody who's donated to keep the project alive and to those who helped track down the materials used in this video.
*Please note that dark matter and dark energy are considered to make up a majority of the universe, in addition to the 12 particles and 4 forces.
[Morgan Freeman] So, what are we really made of? Dig deep inside the atom and you'll find tiny particles Held together by invisible forces
Everything is made up Of tiny packets of energy Born in cosmic furnaces
[Frank Close] The atoms that we're made of have Negatively charged electrons Whirling around a big bulky nucleus
[Michio Kaku] The Quantum Theory Offers a very different explanation Of our world
[Brian Cox] The universe is made of Twelve particles of matter Four forces of nature
That's a wonderful and significant story
[Richard Feynman] Suppose that little things Behaved very differently Than anything big
Nothing's really as it seems It's so wonderfully different Than anything big
The world is a dynamic mess Of jiggling things It's hard to believe
[Kaku] The quantum theory Is so strange and bizarre Even Einstein couldn't get his head around it
[Cox] In the quantum world The world of particles Nothing is certain It's a world of probabilities
[Feynman] It's very hard to imagine All the crazy things That things really are like
Electrons act like waves No they don't exactly They act like particles No they don't exactly
[Stephen Hawking] We need a theory of everything Which is still just beyond our grasp We need a theory of everything, perhaps The ultimate triumph of science
[Feynman] I gotta stop somewhere I'll leave you something to imagine
