Quantum Compass

So apparently new research indicates that a quantum effect known as entaglement is responsible for birds' (and possibly other animals) ability to sense and navigate with earths magnetic feild - the way it works is that differences in the way entagled electrons wobble creates visible patterns on the birds retina that can be used as a compass. I just had to do a drawing about this - how cool!

Oh yeah and here is the finished version of a piece I posted a while ago... mostly had it on the first go, but just wasn't satisfied so I went back in, redesigned the digital element and did a little more painting.

Scientist Sketches

Steven Weinberg
Brian Greene
Paul Davies

Reza Aslan Sam Harris

Walter Sinott-Armstrong

Roger Bingham

So recently my buddy introduced me to this great site called The Science Network. Tons of talks and debates from some prominent modern scientists across a broad spectrum of subjects... there's always something interesting to check out. Anyway, I've been having some fun drawing the faces of the various scientists from the videos... (edit: so Reza Aslan is not a scientist, and the drawings of him and Sam Harris are actually from a debate i saw here (just the first video in a series))
