    A rather ambitious project I commend any attempt to teach challenging topics to the layman But I don’t think it worked at all here The only take home message I’ve managed to gather was that it’s all about probabilities In fact there wasn’t any need to make it into cartoon form All in all a frustrating book about a frustrating topic

    Pretty and I was superficially familiar with some of the concepts discussed but this isn’t a book that explains uantum physics to someone who doesn’t already have a good understanding of it Not even at an introductory level The artwork is gorgeous but the writing is clearly by someone who understands physics and has no idea how to simplify it for someone who doesn’tFeatures not one single lady Even the dog is a boy

    Framing this exploration of uantum physics as a Tintin style adventure was pretty neat but unfortunately the science was often impenetrable The explanations and examples for the various theories principles and euations were often just as difficult to understand as the thing they were meant to simplify I'm not sure who I should blame for this the author Thibault Damour or the translator Sarah Louise Raillard The art however was excellent Mathieu Burniat is awesome

    When I first saw Mysteries of the uantum Universe I was distinctly wary I'm not a great fan of comics and graphic novels and based on the few examples I've come across of trying to put across science using this format I suspected what we'd get is a very shallow 'Gee wow whizzy' approach that was a kind of Horrible Science for adults In practice although some of the language does raise an eyebrow for its clunkiness possibly due to being translated did I really see the main character Bob say 'Egad' at one point? if anything the problems are about either having nothing at all happen or concentrating some uite deep physics material in just a few framesWe begin with the sad death on the Moon where else? of Bob's faithful and talking dog Rick which immediately sets up in the mind of anyone with some familiarity with uantum physics the idea that we are going to get heavy mentions of both Schrödinger's cat and the many worlds interpretation and sure enough there are no surprises there After rather a long time with nothing much happening Bob goes on a spaced out trip through uantum history bringing in most of the landmarks we expect and of course meeting Planck Einstein Bohr de Broglie Heisenberg Schrödinger and Born Plus yes Hugh Everett but strangely not Dirac Feynman or the other ED people for some reasonI was genuinely surprised how much detail physicist Thibault Damour managed to sueeze into a few frames per page when the storyline got on to the details of uantum physics Sometimes the visual contribution of Mathieu Burniat's illustrations in a rather TinTin like style mostly monochrome with occasional splashes of colour really helped underline for example what was intended by various atomic models in other cases though the illustrations become a little overwhelming and the technical detail for example when dealing with matrix mechanics was probably than the reader wanted or needed and seemed likely to confuse rather than elucidateFor me the two biggest things holding the book back were the comic story format and the historical perspective Giving us Bob's story meant that we had page after page where we got no scientific content at all but eually no relatable narrative Bob is a two dimensional character and there's no attempt to draw us into the storyline And presenting the physics in a very chronological fashion which often works in a pure text popular science book here seemed to reuire too much unnecessary detail it might have better just to present things as they are understood nowI'd also say that the last few pages venturing into a very hypothetical Everettian alternative universe seemed both baffling and a waste of space especially because one page was totally blank for no obvious reason I could deduce the publisher assures me it's intentional but it looks like it's a printing errorFinally we get a uick 'the extra science bit' of about 16 pages of text This is in the form of an alphabetic glossary which seemed a bit of a waste of space a coherent chunk of text would have been useful and the alphabetic approach meant that it leads with Alain Aspect's entanglement experiments which are totally out of context for the book so rather baffling as a way inWas producing it a waste of time? Absolutely not It was a truly brave experiment even if it didn't uite come off It would have benefited from a significantly stronger narrative perhaps it would have been better with a science fiction writer involved and someone to tell Damour which bits needed explanation or were unnecessary But even so I'm glad it was produced and I hope it does well Incidentally I had a problem with the ink the smell made me feel physically sick We need risk taking and creativity in popular science and this book scores five out five on both The fact I don't think it entirely succeeded shouldn't get in the way of that

    This graphic novel kicks off with Bob main character mourning over the loss of his good friend pet dog Rick Rick comes to life in a form of a hallucination convinces Bob to go on an adventure to get back on his feet We then watch alongside Bob as he gets sucked into a wormhole kickstarts his mission to uncover the mysteries of the uantum universe He like myself am not entirely educated about uantum physics but he meets various theoretical physicists gains valuable lessons There are reading notes glossary at the end of the book to explain in clearer detailsWe are later on introduced to alternate universes all present in the same reality which I’ve been very interested in Sometimes I wonder what the other ‘me’ is up to; where they are living betterworse lives than I have whether they meet love the same people that I doAbout the visuals I usually like colourful things but because this book was mainly in black white I was able to follow the storycontent without getting distracted As some contents got heavier to absorb there were little coloured elements sprinkled through that was able to keep me engaged Towards the end we see coloured elements appearing the final story ends with an alternate ending to Rick’s mishapI definitely wish that I read this graphic novel years back when I was still in school struggling to understand plain science physics I’m thankful that graphic novels like this exist which made my life a lot easier trying to understand these theories

    This is a great book for those of you who are interested in the mysterious but not mystical world of uantum physics Even if you have a limited background in the field of physics or mathematics this book can clarify at least some parts of the subjectThe drawing style doesn't distract but it takes a few pages to accept the way the main character is portrayed in comparison to the rest of them but as soon as you realise that that character in fact represents yóu in search for answers you shouldn't have a problem with the style anyI felt like the story ended rather abruptly but then again I guess a lot of uestions do remain unanswered in the field of uantum physics

    45 stars I read the English version – Mysteries of the uantum Universe This is the book that I bought at the Edinburgh book fest after listening to a short lecture by the author and graphic artist A magnificent idea explain the history of the evolution of uantum physics and uantum mechanics in simple terms relatively and in comic book form I found it entertaining and extremely informative


  8. says:

    The book is an attempt to explain the development of uantum mechanics as a uest to understand the nature of matter and energy The book partially succeeds as some of the explanations are uite good However parts of the uest seem uite disjointed It reminded me of the physics lessons in school so the book has good nostalgic value for meThe artwork is fabulous with interesting use of colour over mostly black and white ink drawings


  9. says:

    This is a brilliant graphic novel describing the corner stones of the birth of uantum mechanics The pictures are really beautiful and the way the history is presented is as much simple as accurate The Planck's constant figurine is fantastic and the entire novel is designed around it Willing to read other graphic novels like this one

    A must read book for every science lover

review Le Mystère du monde uantiue

Onders they've ever seen As they follow their tour guide the giddy letter h also known as the Planck constant Bob and Rick have crepes with Max Planck talk to Einstein about atoms visit Louis de Broglie in his castle and hang out with Hei. This graphic novel kicks off with Bob main character mourning over the loss of his good friend pet dog Rick Rick comes to life in a form of a hallucination convinces Bob to go on an adventure to get back on his feet We then watch alongside Bob as he gets sucked into a wormhole kickstarts his mission to uncover the mysteries of the uantum universe He like myself am not entirely educated about uantum physics but he meets various theoretical physicists gains valuable lessons There are reading notes glossary at the end of the book to explain in clearer detailsWe are later on introduced to alternate universes all present in the same reality which I’ve been very interested in Sometimes I wonder what the other ‘me’ is up to; where they are living betterworse lives than I have whether they meet love the same people that I doAbout the visuals I usually like colourful things but because this book was mainly in black white I was able to follow the storycontent without getting distracted As some contents got heavier to absorb there were little coloured elements sprinkled through that was able to keep me engaged Towards the end we see coloured elements appearing the final story ends with an alternate ending to Rick’s mishapI definitely wish that I read this graphic novel years back when I was still in school struggling to understand plain science physics I’m thankful that graphic novels like this exist which made my life a lot easier trying to understand these theories
