Pilot Wave Theory and NASA’s EM Drive #SaturdayMorningCartoons

So NASA’s EM Drive might work, and it might not work. If it does work, nobody knows why. Except a solve for the good old quantum mechanics double-slit experiment might have an explanation.

The most famous interpretation of the double slit experiment is the Copenhagen interpretation, which has become the orthodoxy of our very strange quantum world.

The lesser known pilot wave theory swaps out the fundamental strangeness of the Copenhagen Interpretation for more total quantum weirdness.

Here are two videos from PBS Space and Time — one on Pilot Wave Theory and one on the EM Drive.
