“Quantum Sapiens” –Measuring Quantum Effects at the Human Scale

"Quantum Sapiens" --Measuring Quantum Fluctuations at the Human Sc

 

Now for the first time, a team led by researchers at the MIT LIGO Laboratory has measured the effects of quantum fluctuations on objects at the human scale, collapsing the boundary between the random uncertainty of the quantum world, where particles spring into and out of existence, and the orderly certainty of the classical world, where we humans live, see, and measure.
