Are Angels OK?
The world of physics has become a strange, fantastic and sometimes disturbing place - potentially a rich domain for philosophers and artists. Common sense and intuition cannot guide us there. For the past year, a team of New Zealand physicists have been collaborating with ten leading writers - giving them the opportunity to enter this world and understand the profound and beautiful rules and symmetries that define our Universe.
