**Collapsing Physics: Q&A with Catalina Oana Curceanu**

Tests of a rival to quantum theory, taking place in the belly of the Gran Sasso d'Italia mountain, could reveal how the fuzzy subatomic realm of possibilities comes into sharp macroscopic focus.

**Dropping Schrödinger's Cat Into a Black Hole**

Combining gravity with the process that transforms the fuzzy uncertainty of the quantum realm into the definite classical world we see around us could lead to a theory of quantum gravity.

**Does Quantum Weirdness Arise When Parallel Classical Worlds Repel?**

Quantum mechanics could derive from subtle interactions among unseen neighboring universes

**Wrinkles in Spacetime**

Searching for defects in the fabric of the cosmos could help physicists home in on the correct theory of quantum gravity.

**Blurring Causal Lines**

Quantum experiments mix past and future on the microscopic scale—opening the door to faster computers and revising our notion of causality.
