Researchers close in on experiments that could solve physics’ ‘biggest single problem’

The theories of quantum mechanics and general relativity have held up time and again at describing the physics of our universe at a micro and a macro scale, but when it comes to gravity, the two pose a major problem that physicists havent been able to resolve: for certain interactions, the two theories describe two different outcomes. Finding out what actually happens in those interactions isnt so simple — such interactions have minute differences that are seemingly undetectable. The biggest single problem of all of physics is how to reconcile [general relativitys] gravity and quantum mechanics, Philip Stamp, a theoretical physicist at the University of British Columbia, tells Quanta.
