Gribbon ( In Search of Shr÷dinger's Cats ) presents new evidence about the nature of light that pulls together quantum theory and relativity theory into a coherent explanation of reality. Scattering the indeterminate feline's brood to the opposite ends of the universe (all good homes, of course) he explains signals that travel faster than light and backwards in time, photons capable of being in two places at the same time; and how such arcanery is already being used to make uncrackable codes and could result in a transporter a la Star Trek . For general readers with some general knowledge of science. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
