Quantum Theory and why God does play dice
Celebrating the 100th anniversary of Einstein's Annus Mirabilis, Dr Brian COX evaluates the effect his work has on scientists today, who are studying the confusing world of quantum mechanics.
Particle Physicists trying to discover how the very first atoms formed at the beginning of the universe, through to quantum theorists and those working on a unified theory of everything all cite Einstein as a major influence. And his theories remain unchallenged to this day.
Brian also visits the University of Vienna where scientists are "teleporting" bits of information, following thought experiments first proposed by Einstein in the 1930s.
