There are a number of documentaries out there that detail the different aspects of the science world, including quantum physics, explanation of quantum theories and the time space continuum. What are the best documentaries about quantum physics? Also known as quantum mechanics and quantum theory, quantum physics discusses a mathematical approach to the combination of quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity. The earliest versions of quantum physics began in the 20th century around the same time that the atomic theory and Einstein’s theory of light also took the forefront of the science world.

This list discusses the best documentary films discussing quantum physics, including: Skeptics in the Pub, The Fabric of the Cosmos, Brave New World, Parallel Universes, A Beautiful New Theory of Everything, Quantum Simulations, and The Elegant Universe.
