Why we still don't get gravity





Gravity. It's simple, right? Objects, the larger the better, exerting force on each other. Turns out, it's a complex subject that we don't quite understand yet. In the 1970s physicist Stephen Hawking declared that gravity was incompatible with quantum mechanics—laws governing how objects behave at the subatomic level. But recent research is bringing these apparently disparate views together. UBC physicist Mark Van Raamsdonk is helping to pioneer a new theoretical approach to gravity that could rewrite physics books.
