When Antonella Masini he was barely 18 years old, he won a scholarship of 250,000 dollars for explaining in an easy and didactic way the concept of quantum entanglement, one of the most difficult physical phenomena to understand. The young student was awarded at the Premios Breakthrough Prize which are promoted by the CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, and other giants in the business-technological world.
“Quantum entanglement is a phenomenon in subatomic physics in which we consider that when two particles interact with each other, their characteristics become entangled, which means that by knowing the state of one of the particles, you can deduce the state of the other”, he mentions Masini in his YouTube video.
The sum that Masini earned was destined to pay for her university studies, since, at that time, she had just finished high school and dreamed of becoming a prominent mechanical engineer. To achieve this goal, she had to apply like any other candidate to three American universities: the University of Michigan, Stanford University and MIT. They all admitted it; however, she decided to study in the latter.
“I chose MIT because its Faculty of Science and Technology is very good, and because this university offers the possibility of doing research with people who have won Nobel prizes,” he said in an interview for RPP.
What happened to Antonella Masini?
In the year 2021, the outstanding student Antonella Masini finished her studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The promising young physicist expressed her excitement at this achievement with a heartfelt message: “It has been a wild ride, but a thousand smiles, laughs, breakdowns and late nights later, I can say with absolute certainty that I would not have been able to graduate without the support of my friends and family. I love you all very much and thank you for making these last four years the most incredible of my life, ”she wrote on her social networks.
He currently resides in Cambridge and He has been working for more than a year at Formlabs, an American company dedicated to the development and production of 3D printing technology.
