Although we do not have the flying cars and underwater cities promised by 1950s' science fiction, the modern world is even more fantastic, with its laptop computers, MRI machines and DVDs. James Kakalios, author of The Physics of Superheroes, explains the fundamental rules of quantum mechanics - and their discovery through the work of physicists such as Max Planck and Werner Heisenberg - which have made possible these remarkable features of our modern lifestyle.
