Quantum Mechanics(QM) is the most accurate scientific theory ever created - and also the strangest. There are still raging debates among physicists and philosophers about "what QM means", and notably, Albert Einstein never accepted QM. There are many peculiar phenomena predicated by QM that utterly defy common sense. Even though QM may seem esoteric, modern life would be impossible without it. We will learn some basic QM, see why it is so puzzling, and look at some applications, present and future.
