Quantum Tennis (image) Technical University of Munich (TUM) Share Print E-Mail Caption The motion of a tennis racket in the air can help predict the behavior of quanta. While the racket rotates 360 degrees about its lateral axis, the tennis racket effect leads to an unintentional 180-degree flip about its longitudinal axis. The overall rotation leaves the red, bottom side facing upward.
