Quantum to Cosmos: How do they make things 3d?
One of the exhibits at Perimeter Institute’s Quantum to Cosmos festival. Polarized light, a special type of light with fascinating properties, is used to detect stresses in materials, make 3D eye-popping images, and to create stunning photographs. Come and explore the world of polarized light through this interactive exhibit.

A preponderance of astronomical evidence suggests that the galaxy is filled with dark matter. Despite knowing remarkably little about what this dark matter is, we expect that it is not composed of ordinary matter. Though we have spent 30 years expecting that it may be related to pressing open problems in fundamental physics, a heroic […]
