A Physicist and a Science Writer Walk Into a Bar
By GEORGE MUSSER
Quantum physics can make rocket science look like kindergarten circle time. Even experts find it daunting. So imagine the challenges that science writers face, both in understand the physics and conveying it to a general readership. To try to help,...
Show Me the Physics Winners — Tune in Soon!
By BRENDAN FOSTER
Astute followers of FQXi's first ever video contest Show Me the Physics! may know that the contest timeline lists today as the day for announcing our winners. Well, I am happy to announce that our judges have in fact made their choices...

I was nineteen; I had probably been out partying with friends the night before; those were different days. However it came about, I slept through class that morning. It was “Quantum Mechanics for the Myriad,” and my college professor was...
NEW PODCAST EPISODES
Primordial gravitational waves turn to dust and why this is good news for inflation theory; Julian Barbour's model in which the big bang created twin mirror universes, solves the arrow of time problem; & Paul Davies on his physics-based evolutionary-model of cancer, which recommends oxygen treatment and immunotherapy.
Watching Schrodinger's cat die; black holes bounce into white holes; sharpening Occam's razor; catching quantum pigeons; & generating quantum Cheshire cats.
Time travel is simulated in the lab; Alan Guth on the doubts clouding the BICEP2 result; how the Higgs should have destroyed the universe already; & could entropy explain why nature obeys quantum rules?

Alternative Models of Reality
By ZEEYA MERALI
If you have an unconventional, alternative model of reality, then this is the place to discuss it. (This is for contributors who have preliminary ideas and would like feedback, but do not have an academic paper or arXiv preprint and have not given a...
Alternative Models of Cosmology
In cosmology, it is believed that regions of space on `opposite' sides of the universe are too far apart to have ever been causally connected. That is, they are outside each other's `particle horizon'. Consequently, it is difficult to explain the...
Uncertainty Relations - Fundamental or No?

Will the Uncertainty Relations Survive as
Fundamental Pieces in the Future of Physics?
by Spiridon DUMITRU
In this short text (by direct references to two my recent paper [1, 2] ) we try to evince the incorrectness of...
