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.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
