Adam Becker has a big problem with quantum physics. In his new book, "What Is Real?," the astrophysicist documents the heated debate around the so-called Copenhagen Interpretation and confronts the reader with the limitations and contradictions of quantum mechanics. Becker joins us this hour to explain the science at the heart of these debates, their history and the stories of the people who have them.
