March 2015 Galileo Galilei died over 373 years ago; Sir Isaac Newton 288 years ago; Marie Curie 81 years ago; and Albert Einstein 60 years ago. But this is not their story. This is the story of two young scientists Tom Jackson and Scott 'Mad Dog' Maddocks. Their idyllic existence is thrown into chaos when Tom is struck by lightning, accidentally creating a door to the 'Qbits' quantum reality o a world existing on electrons and operating at light speed based on uncertainty and randomness. Tom and Mad Dog are entangled with the wannabe superheroes who resemble the four great, but dead scientists. In Qbits live MAC, NEWTS, ALBY and GG o the quantum incarnations of Marie Curie, Sir Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein and Galileo Galilei. Complex radical individuals when they were alive, they are back determined to save the planet. Tom and Scott are quite happy lecturing at Sydney University, playing rugby, drinking beer, swimming at Bondi Beach and recovering at Harry's Cafe de Wheels but, when they least expect it, they are propelled into the complex Qbits' world. Quantum entanglement: 2 worlds + 2 young scientists + 4 Qbits = chaos + adventure.
