: The uncertainty principle is a major factor in making deductions based on quantum mechanics. However, with these observations that Schnee and I are talking about right now, it doesn't come into effect. Anyways, tell me what you know about the uncertainty principle, and if you're missing any important info i'll fill you in.

I know just the basics, what I have read in works of popular science.

The more accurately you measure the velocity of a particle, the less accurately you can measure its postion, and vice versa.

The principle is that the mere act of observation changes the outcome of an event, in an unpredictable way. If I'm missing anything, let me know.

Are there any other such principles in QM you could share?
