New Podcast: On The Limits Of Space

At scales below approximately the size of an atom, quantum effects become important. But we can go down many, many more orders of magnitude. (Stanford Linear Accelerator Collider)

What’s going on at the smallest and largest scales of all? Let’s look to the absolute limits of physics.


Have you ever wondered what’s out there in the Universe, on the largest scales, beyond what we can even observe? Or what lies down below the tiniest distance scales we’ve ever probed? Is there a smallest fundamental length scale in the Universe, like the Planck scale, or can we go down even farther? Is space discrete or continuous? And is the Universe fundamentally blurred; can we even distinguish?

Thinking about the limits of space, on both small and large scales, is a mind-bending game to play, but we’re up to the challenge on this latest edition of the Starts With A Bang podcast!
