The scientists have released their calculations, according to which the Universe may have quantum properties.Artyom Yurov explained:"To begin with, let's remember what quantum physics is. Perhaps this is the most amazing phenomenon known to people. When scientists started studying atoms for the first time, they noticed that everything works "upside down" in the microcosm. For example, according to quantum theory, an electron may present in several places simultaneously.Try to imagine your cat simultaneously lying on the sofa and eating from its bowl that is in the other corner of the room.
