Paul Rudd and Stephen Hawking Square Off in a Game of Quantum Chess, Which Makes Regular Chess Look Like a Game for Dumb Babies


Finally, the greatest physicist in the history of theoretical cosmology faces off against an actor who agreed to be in Year One. In a match narrated by an extremely committed Keanu Reeves, Paul Rudd and Stephen Hawking take each other on in a game of Quantum Chess, a very complicated-sounding game from the minds at Caltech’s Institute for Quantum Information and Matter. It appears to be chess, but utilizing the rules of quantum physics, and also, hopefully, you’ve seen Ant-Man? Quantum Chess looks like a fun variation on the game if you’re about that online-game life, but definitely set aside some time to brush up on your Quantum Physics for Babies. We all wondered why they even bothered to publish that book, but looks like we’re the dumb babies now.
