Video Description

The multiverse and quantum tunneling explained in 2:27! It is a cartoon picture of the concept of quantum tunneling, and show how it can lead to the creation of a multiverse. The video is meant to be short and sweet, allowing viewers new to the concepts to get a quick intuitive understanding of otherwise very complex ideas.

Luke and Amanda,

Congratulations for your well-produced and to the point video about quantum tunneling and its relationship with the generation of multiple universes. Your animations really helped to explain the subject. The only point I thought could have been clearer was the relationship between tunneling and the release of energy: the way you present things, you could give the false impression that it is the act of tunneling itself that releases the energy, when, of course, it is the rolling downhill on the potential curve. (Simple tunneling through a potential barrier where the potential is the same on each side of the barrier does not release energy.)

I hope your video does well in this contest. Good luck!

Marc

P.S. If you have a chance to view, comment and vote on my trilogy of videos entitled "This Is Physics" --- where I try to convey the "fun of physics" by focusing on some of the greatest moments of its history --- it would be quite appreciated! I think many of the participants in the contest have not yet realized that a video needs to get at least 10 community ratings to be considered for the final round, so I have started to actively ask for ratings... Don't hesitate to do the same, many authors had to resort to this approach in the previous contests organized by FQXi...

Hi. I think you have done an excellent job at providing a simple and lucid explanation of the multiverse idea. My only minor crib is that in spite of its elegant simplicity, some of the concepts / terminology might still be beyond the reach of a viewer who is not a physicist. But undoubtedly, for those with a knowledge of physics, this is a wonderful little exposition.

Kind regards,

Tejinder

Hi there Luke and Amanda,

I really enjoyed watching your video and even though I wished the film wouldn't have stopped at 2:27 (because it is really educative) you did a very good job of explaining quantum tunneling. I like how simple and straight forward your narration is. What I find particularly interesting is, that quantum tunneling might happen at a speed faster than light, which I find pretty incredible since it challenges the classical notion of Einstein's relativity theory.(http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs10701-01

I wish you good luck and hope you keep on making physics videos!

Hi Luke and Amanda,

I hope you find the chance to check out our video and tell us what you think. If you could vote for us it would be really appreciated, since we all need at least 10 votes to be considered for the finals. I think we can both make it if we stick together and help each other out - in the spirit of sharing knowledge and contributing to the community :)

Keep up the awesome work!

Madeleine

I enjoyed this..

Fine animations, fun sound effects, and nice delivery. Short and sweet, yes, and mostly relevant. Well shown how quantum tunneling can lead to a multiverse. I hope you do well in the contest, Luke and Amanda.

If you get the chance, please watch, rate, and comment on my video:

All the Best,

Jonathan
