Teleportation is pretty magical, I mean almost any kid finds that awesome — I think any adult would find that awesome. But quantum mechanics in general is … the idea of the supernatural being completely real. And so that’s how I see myself: as someone who converts the supernatural into reality and that’s why I’m so excited about it.
Ari Dyckovsky, high school senior and author of groundbreaking paper on quantum entanglement.
Ari always knew he was interested in math and physics, but by the time he was 16, he realized the he had gotten as far as he go on his own. So he wrote emails to over 70 different physicists, asking for help. One wrote back. Steven Olmschenk, a physicist at the Joint Quantum Institute, gave Ari a crash course on a pressing problem in the field of quantum entanglement, and then sent him to work. Now Ari Dyckovsky has authored a ground-breaking paper on quantum entanglement that may prove to be a crucial breakthrough in the quest to build a quantum computer. He’s just 18-years-old. More.
