This is one of the many cool panel discussions from the World Science Festival, held over the past four days (ends today, Sunday, June 3). For this roundtable on quantum biology and the hidden nature of nature, they brought together John Hockenberry (host and moderator), Paul Davies, Seth Lloyd, Thorsten Ritz for a lively conversation.
The actual introduction begins around 5 minutes in - at the beginning is the annoying song, "Strange Science."
Can the spooky world of quantum physics explain bird navigation, photosynthesis and even our delicate sense of smell? Clues are mounting that the rules governing the subatomic realm may play an unexpectedly pivotal role in the visible world. Leading thinkers in the emerging field of quantum biology explored the hidden hand of quantum physics on the scales of everyday life.
