Summary
"Sunlight helps a plant makes its own food using photosynthesis. But do you know what happens to a plant when there is no sunlight? Or what part of a plant makes food? Let's experiment to find out! Simple step-by-step instructions help readers explore science concepts and analyze information."--Provided by publisher.

Summary
Physicist Jim Al-Khalili routinely deals quantum physics, the perplexing theory of sub-atomic particles. But now he's turning his attention to the world of nature. Can quantum mechanics explain the greatest mysteries in biology? His first encounter is with the robin. This familiar little bird navigates using one quantum entanglement, a process which seems to defy common sense. Even Albert Einstein himself could not believe it. Jim finds that even the most personal of human experiences-our sense of smell-is touched by ethereal quantum vibrations. According to the latest experiments, it seems that our quantum noses are listening to smells. Jim then discovers that the most famous law of quantum physics, the uncertainty principle, is obeyed by plants and trees as they capture sunlight during the vital process of photosynthesis. Finally, Jim asks if quantum physics might play a role in evolution. Could the strange laws of the sub-atomic world, which allow objects to tunnel through impassable barriers, affect the mechanism by which living species evolve?

Summary
Whether they're searching for the cosmic big picture or studying Earth's most humble life forms, scientists must develop a thorough understanding of light. This program guides viewers through cutting-edge physics, biology, and forensics as it explores light's fundamental characteristics and uses. Viewers are introduced to MacArthur Fellow and Harvard researcher Dr. Lene Hau, who outlines her method for slowing light down, despite Einstein's assertion to the contrary. In addition, the program sheds light-literally-on new tools and techniques in crime scene investigations, while studying photosynthesis in plants and the surprising visual acuity of jellyfish.
