Summary
"Everything in the universe -- including light, water, air, planets, buildings, animals, and people -- is made of minute particles. Quantum physics is the science of these tiny particles. The discoveries made in quantum physics have been the driving force behind technological advances ranging from cell phones to lasers and medical imaging. Without it, most of the technology we take for granted simply wouldn't exist"--Page 4 of cover
