Caption

Chance in the universe. Computer illustration representing the chance 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. They are distorted in the disrupted space-time around the black hole. As matter spirals towards the black hole it grows denser and hotter, resulting in the emission of radiation, such as the light seen here. The randomness and probability in quantum physics (subatomic physics) was described by Heisenberg and Schrodinger. Einstein did not believe in a random universe and said "God does not play dice with the universe".
