Jeff Tollaksen, Ph.D., professor, Schmid College of Science, and co-director of Chapman University’s new Institute for Quantum Studies, will be a featured expert on the Wednesday, Aug. 1, episode of “Through the Wormhole,” a popular Science Channel program hosted by actor Morgan Freeman.
Tollaksen was interviewed at length about quantum mechanics and his work with Chapman’s own professor and Medal of Science winner Yakir Aharonov, Ph.D., whose research shows evidence of time moving in two directions, indicating that the future can shape the past. Aharonov, co-director of the Institute for Quantum Studies, will be honored at several events planned next month for the institute’s formal dedication.
The program is scheduled to air at 7 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time and again at 10 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time.
Hosted by Morgan Freeman, “Through the Wormhole” taps leading scientists to help explore the deepest mysteries of existence — the questions that have puzzled mankind for eternity.
