How two Dutch physicists investigated a mysterious quantum property, used a nonsensical analogy, and brought about a revolution
See if you can get your head around this.
Estimates by astronomers indicate that there could be more than 100 BILLION Earth-like worlds in the Milky Way that could be home to life. Think that’s a big number? According to astronomers, there are roughly 500 billion galaxies in the known universe, which means there are around 50,000,000,000,00…
With every birth, cells begin anew. Scientists have found a biological mechanism underpinning the process in worms, which one day may be harnessed to restore our own damaged cells.
Researchers have shown how to write any magnetic pattern desired onto nanowires, which could help computers mimic how the brain processes information.
Scientists at NASA’s Goddard Spaceflight Center are hoping to use virtual reality technology to study space, and Earth, without leaving their offices. Talented high school students are helping.
If you haven’t heard, universities around the world are offering their courses online for free (or at least partially free). These courses are collectively called MOOCs or Massive Open Online Courses. In the past six years or so, close to 800 universities have created more than 8,000 of these MOOCs. And I’ve been keeping track…
Two mathematicians have proved that two different infinities are equal in size, settling a long-standing question. Their proof rests on a surprising link
The UK and Canada have joined to launch an international partnership, in hopes of advancing efforts to transition away from using coal as an energy source.
Japan has unveiled its first quantum computer prototype, amid a global race to build ever-more powerful machines with faster speeds and larger brute force that are key towards realising the full potential of artificial intelligence.
Scientists have seen peculiar behavior from a small percentage of stars. This may be evidence of alien communication or just a new natural phenomenon.
NASA engineers are designing a new generation of rover wheels that can cope with the rugged terrain of the red …
At a fundamental level, could the Universe be made up of not of particles, but rather of mere quantum bits of information?
In our new paper, in Nature Neuroscience, we apply a neuroscience lens to a longstanding mathematical theory from machine learning to provide new insights into the nature of learning and memory. Specifically, we propose that the area of the brain known as the hippocampus offers a unique solution to this problem by compactly summarising future events using what we call a “predictive map.”
The universe is not only expanding – it is accelerating outward, driven by what is commonly referred to as “dark energy.” The term is a poetic analogy to label for dark matter, the mysterious material that dominates the matter in the universe and that really is dark because it does not radiate light (it reveals itself via its gravitational influence on galaxies). Two explanations are commonly advanced to explain dark energy. The first, as Einstein once speculated, is that gravity itself causes objects to repel one another when they are far enough apart (he added this “cosmological constant” term to his equations). The second explanation hypothesizes (based on our current understanding of elementary particle physics) that the vacuum has properties that provide energy to the cosmos for expansion.
Dark matter has been the dominant idea to explain the apparent ‘missing mass’ of the Universe for 40+ years. Could a new conception of gravity get rid of it entirely?
For decades, astronomers believed that super-massive black holes exist at the very center of massive galaxies. So far, given their nature, all attempts to observe and study them have been confined to indirect methods. Now the history has been made on April 12th, 2017, changing all that, when an international team of astronomers captured the first-ever image of Sagittarius A*. In order to achieve these astronomers used a series of telescopes around the globe, collectively known as Event Horizon telescope (EHT). Whereby widely-space radio dishes from across the globe are connected into an Earth-sized virtual telescope, is known as Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI)

For the first time, astronomers have detail on the 3D pattern of warping that occurs when black holes with masses of 31 and 25 times that of the sun collide
Hydrodynamics and competition guide the architectural design of biofilm fortresses.
The universe has not cooperated with physicistsâ hopes. In desperation, many are looking for new ways to search for surprises at the Large Hadron Collider.

The potential for photon entanglement in quantum computing and communications has been known for decades. One of the issues impeding its immediate application is the fact that many photon entanglement platforms do not operate within the range used by most forms of telecommunication.
We’re building a 1,300km-long underground science experiment to study the world’s most elusive particles
The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) could help unravel the mysteries of antimatter and complete scientists’ next model of the universe.
The researchers, from Cambridge, Southampton and Cardiff Universities in the UK and the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology in Russia, have used quantum particles known as polaritons – which are half light and half matter – to act as a type of ‘beacon’ showing the way to the simplest solution to complex problems. This entirely new design could form the basis of a new type of computer that can solve problems that are currently unsolvable, in diverse fields such as biology, finance or space travel.
Within 15 minutes of meeting Mark Hersam, PhD, a renowned nanotechnology expert and professor of materials science and engineering at Northwestern University, Ethan Secor knew he wanted to work with him. Secor, a fifth year materials science and engineering PhD candidate, didn’t have a project in mi…
