SCIENCE STUDIO: Quantum Theory

Ken Wharton

Most of us have heard of Einstein's Theory of Relativity.  And many of us have also heard of quantum theory. Why don't these two theories correspond to each other?  On this program we'll visit with Ken Wharton of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at San Jose State University.  He'll explain why he wants to recast quantum theory in a way that's compatible with our current knowledge of Space and Time.  He'll also tell us why the laws of physics work the same forwards as backwards.
