EX­PLORE THE QUAN­TUM UNI­VERSE

Focus-Science and Technology - - Q & A -

Quan­tum physics is no­to­ri­ously dif­fi­cult to ex­plain, but help is at hand! In new graphic novel, Mys­ter­ies

Of The Quan­tum Uni­verse, ex­plorer Bob and his dog Rick take us on a jour­ney through the world of the very small. Led by their tour guide, the let­ter h (also known as the Planck con­stant), they talk atoms with Ein­stein, visit Louis de Broglie in his cas­tle, and hang out with Heisen­berg on Heligoland.

Billed as ‘Tintin meets Brian Cox’, the book was cre­ated by the­o­ret­i­cal physi­cist Thibault Damour and il­lus­tra­tor Mathieu Bur­niat, so it’s as sci­en­tif­i­cally ac­cu­rate as it is beau­ti­ful.

OUT 29 JUNE (£17.99, PAR­TIC­U­LAR BOOKS).

MYS­TER­IES OF THE QUAN­TUM UNI­VERSE BY THIBAULT DAMOUR AND MATHIEU BUR­NIAT
