Montrealers: Come learn about the insanity that goes on in the subatomic world.

Quantum Physics: Everything You Thought You Knew About Reality Is Horribly, Horribly Wrong

Plus Jam Tasting

Free Admission

Presented in conjunction with Preservation Society, this event will feature a talk by the author of this very website, C. Liam Brown, as well as preserves to taste and buy.

  • Discover how many times you’d have to walk into a wall before you eventually popped through!
  • Find out why Erwin Schrödinger couldn’t decide whether his pet cat was alive, dead, or both!
  • Learn what bizarre new theory was called “Spooky Action at a Distance” by Einstein himself!

The talk will last as long as the audience’s patience – probably around 45 minutes. All are welcome. As with everything else on the site, no knowledge of either mathematics or science is required.




In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been posting chapter updates twice a week since the site began. But this week I’m tutoring like a maniac as final exams approach. So if you’re sitting there waiting desperately to find out the connection between forces and Isaac Newton, you’re just going to have to be patient.

The good news is that rather than resting on my laurels, I’ve got some fun and exciting plans for the site that will soon be announced formally. Real-life Pop Physics events! Interviews with actual physicists! Cute dog videos!

Please stay tuned.




Pop Physics will soon be supplying you with all of your conceptual-science needs. Please stay tuned.
