Physicists Hope to Finally Resolve Whether Gravity is Quantum by Levitating Micro Diamonds

If successful, the experiments would not only affirm some of the theories proposing the quantum nature of gravity but could also finally unify general relativity with theories of quantum mechanics.

Unifying General Relativity with Quantum Mechanics Has Proven Elusive

“General relativity and quantum mechanics are the two most fundamental descriptions of nature we have,” explains the press release announcing the new experiments. “General relativity explains gravity on large scales while quantum mechanics explains the behaviour of atoms and molecules.”
