What is a quantum leap?
A quantum leap In physics, a quantum leap or jump is the change of an electron from one energy state to another within an atom. It is discontinuous; electrons jump from one energy level to another instantaneously, with no intervening or intermediary condition. The phenomenon contradicts classical theories, which expect energy levels to be continuous. Quantum leaps are the sole cause of the emission of electromagnetic radiation, including light, which occurs in the form of quantized units called photons. Ironically, when laymen use the term colloquially, they use it to describe large jumps in progress, when in reality a quantum leap is a very small change of state.

Not yet . As of now there has been no television movie after the finale to the fifth season. the only movie was its NBC debut which was a two-hour TV movie on March 26, 1989.
Extreamly big. The true fans would wish that a quantum leap movie will come out.
Change can happen over time, a quantum leap does not. The expression: a quantum leap comes from physics and refers to the orbit of electrons around the nucleus. The electrons cannot be anywhere but have to be in distinct energy regions. So for an electron to change orbit it must leap to the …next energy or lower energy level it can not do it gradually. Similarly if a quantum leap is made it is a radical change not a gradual change . New discoveries in science can revolutionise traditional thinking overnight. One could say a quantum leap in understanding was made. Whereas, just about everything can change slowly over time but that is not a quantum leap. Change can be slow and gradual or even fast and high paced. The student quickly improved his language skills at the immersion school. Is an example of change. A quantum leap is jumping from one understanding to another. The student finally understood the difference in verb endings for the past tense and a quantum leap was made in his ability to understand and speak intelligibly. Vast progress was made when an impediment (obstacle) was removed. (MORE)
When a quantum leap occurs, a single photon is emitted. A "quantum leap" is generally used in the context of "business-speak" or "politico-speak" where the speaker is implying that some event, or process, or decision represents a large change of great significance.
The version of unchained melody that was played on Quantum Leap wasdone by the Righteous Brothers. It was featured in the M.I.A.episode.
Sadly not :( i really wish they would but lets face it Scott Backula and Dean Stockwell are getting kind of old and the fan population has depleted over the years. 08/06/2010-Scott Bakula announced at comic.con that a movie is in the works with Bellasario
The show was not Quantum Leap, but there was an actor who died on the set of a `time traveling` weekly tv series. I think it was called Voyager, not ` Star Trek Voyager. The actor`s name escapes me at the moment, but he was the adult lead of the show. ... Waggle50
In the Season 4 premiere- Sam actually ends up back in his own timeafter lightning strikes making him the hologram and Al the leaper.He is his actual self in 1999 and learns he has a wife. His staffstarts trying to find a way to help him rescue Al which latercauses him to have to start leaping aroun…d all over again withouteven remembering he ever came back. Sam unfortunately does notreturn to his present year at the end of the final episode which isreally sad. (MORE)
Dr. Sam Beckett is himself in the final episode on the very day hewas born. He is in a bar in Pennsylvania where he sees a bunch ofguys who all look like somebody he had met during his leaps. Thebartender is named Al just like the hologram and possibly is theone who had been leaping him around. He k…new everything Sam wasthinking without him even saying what was on his mind. Al in thefuture is unable to track down where Sam is after discovering noone was in the waiting room. Sam tells Al the bartender about thetime Al the hologram wanted him to stop his first wife from gettingremarried and he refused to because it was against the rules tochange history for personal reasons. The bartender tells Sam he cancome home anytime he wants to- but he should continue doing theresponsibilities he has been given ever since he started leapingthrough time. Sam is given a choice and chooses to go to when Al'sfirst wife was missing him during the time he was at a POW camp inVietnam. He tells her he is alive and coming home- the last leaphas the screen go black and shows three messages saying whathappened as a result. The first one says she never remarried. Thesecond one says she and Al have four daughters and will have beenmarried for 39 years. The third one says Dr. Sam Beckett neverreturned home. Sad music is played showing a picture of Sam and Alstanding by eachother. (MORE)
He acted in two episodes of "Dream On" in 1994. He acted in 13 episodes of "Murphy Brown" 1993-1996. Starred in "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" (1996-1997). Voiced a character in "Adventures from the Book of Virtues" (1998).
This is something that is really open to your own interpretation. Throughout the series, no, God does not appear, nor is He openly represented. However, in the final episode, Dr. Beckett meets the character of the bartender named Al. This character provided Dr. Beckett with some unique insights and …advice. Through these conversations, this character implies that he is God, Fate, Time, or at least some representation of those things that has influence over the leaps. However, it is never directly stated in the episode that this character is, without a question, God. (MORE)
No, he ended up going through time as himself and saved Al's first marriage in the last episode.
Yes, it was cancelled right in the middle of a cliff hanger. Because they had to just cancel it quick it was a bad ending where sam never gets home.
They would have to pay the music artist for the rights which could be too costly. All the music on the WKRP DVD was replaced which hurt the artistic value and realism of the show. Also, the Bossom Buddies original show theme Billy Joel's "My Life" is now an awful studio song on the DVD.
Because Universal had decided it had run long enough. The series finale was originally planned as an episode setting up a spin-off- but it was never picked up and that was where the series actually ended.
during a quantum leap an electron transitions from one quantum energy signature to another energy signature by absorbing or admitting a photon of energy in this process the electron simultaneously transitions directly from one electron shell level to a higher or lower electron shell level without mo…ving through the space or time in between the two electron shell levels.

Yeah, it's really good. There is nothing sunsuitable for young children so a 12 year old will have no problem.
Quantum leaping is the premise behind Quantum Leap the TV program. Its just a made up phenomenon of time travel by swapping bodies with other people at various times within the leapers lifetime. This is of course impossible.
