Quantum Microscope Contest - $15,000

Quantum Microscope Contest

A total of $15,000 in cash prizes will be awarded across five phases of the EWT Project to simulate the creation of particles, atoms and matter with classical physics, using an add-on and Blender's physics engine. The Quantum Microscope Add-On to Blender is an open source project.

Contest - Phase 1

The first phase of the project begins on September 1, 2020 and will award USD $2,500 to the winner and $500 to a runner up.  Details of the contest requirements, dates, instructions and source code repository can be found here.

About the Project

To build and model the universe from the Planck scale to galactic scales requires an incredible number of mathematical computations to simulate particles and their interactions, yet the framework of nature and the physics of these interactions should be simple. Blender's physics engine provides a good base to begin this project, but it will take work from the community to accurately model subatomic particles. A YouTube video summarizes the project and the initial release of the Quantum Microscope Add-On at:

…machine epsilon comes to mind

No, not the entire universe. The project is called a quantum microscope because it zooms into discrete parts, calculating particles, atoms and molecules, each of which are at different scales.

Please remove this from Blender Artists. A five minute perusal of energywavetheory is ample to show that this is not a peer reviewed physics site. We’re in an age where we cannot risk promoting pseudoscience.

At least check their claims with your friendly local University department before proceeding…
