Caption: Chance in the universe. Computer illustration representing the chance, randomness and probability inherent in the universe according to the theory of quantum mechanics. Dice are seen spiralling towards a black hole, their numbers producing a random sequence. This randomness and probability in quantum physics (subatomic physics) was described by Werner Heisenberg in his 'Uncertainty Principle', and by Erwin Schrodinger. Einstein did not believe in a random universe and consequently said "God does not play dice with the universe".
