Watch what happens when physicists play with fidget spinners for the first time.
The genes account for just a tiny fraction of the variation in test scores, experts say. Many are yet to be found, and environmental factors are also greatly important.
National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) physicists have solved the seemingly intractablepuzzle of how to control the quantum properties of individual charged molecules, or molecular ions. Thesolution is to use the same kind of “quantum logic” that drives an experimental NIST atomic clock.
(Phys.org)-For the first time, physicists have experimentally demonstrated the violation of “bilocal causality”-a concept that is related to the more standard local causality, except that it accounts for the precise way in which physical systems are initially generated. The results show that it’s possible to violate local causality in an entirely new and more general way, which could lead to a potential new resource for quantum technologies.
George Church is on the TIME 100 2017 list. Stephen Colbert wrote about the scientist.

Sundrop farms are reinventing agriculture through a mix of solar power and hydroponic technology
In the fight against disease, many weapons in the medicinal arsenal have been plundered from bacteria themselves. Using CRISPR-Cas9 gene-editing technology, researchers have now uncovered even more potential treasure hidden in silent genes.
Atomic defects in diamonds can be used as quantum memories. Researchers at TU Wien for the first time have succeeded in coupling the defects in various diamonds using quantum physics.
Unlike other organisms, coleoid cephalopods make extensive use of RNA editing, which could slow their evolution but may make their behavior more complex than other invertebrates.
In a world-leading study researchers at Macquarie University have proven a method for multiplying laser power using diamond, demonstrating that a laser similar to the Star Wars ‘superlaser’ may no longer remain in science fiction.
âSheefsâ will test the limits of current regulations, experts say, as embryolike structures are created directly from stem cells.

Using a new algorithm Google’s DeepMind has taught its AI to learn from past experiences
For five decades, Moore’s law held up pretty well: Roughly every two years, the number of transistors one could fit on a chip doubled, all while costs steadily declined. Today, however, transistors and other electronic components are so small they’re beginning to bump up against fundamental physical limits on their size. Moore’s law has reached its end, and it’s going to take something different to meet the need for computing that is ever faster, cheaper and more efficient.
A new study out of UCLA has found that one part of the neurons in our brains are more active than previously revealed. The finding implies that our brains are both analog and digital computers and could lead to better ways to treat neurological disorders.

Galileo called mathematics the “language with which God wrote the universe.” He described a picture-language, and now that language has a new dimension.
Over the past 12 months NASA has added five missions to its orbiting Earth-observing fleet-the biggest one-year increase in more than a decade. NASA scientists will discuss early observations from the new missions and their current status during a media teleconference at 2 p.m. EST Thursday, Feb. 26. New views of global carbon dioxide, rain […]
For all the improvements in computer technology over the years, we still struggle to recreate the low-energy, elegant processing of the human brain. Now, researchers at Stanford University and Sandia National Laboratories have made an advance that could help computers mimic one piece of the brain’s efficient design – an artificial version of the space over which neurons communicate, called a synapse.
The PlasticRoad concept－constructing a road would take days instead of months, and roads would last three times as long.

One of the most terrifyingly-plausible doomsday scenarios is the rise of superbugs, bacteria that are evolving a resistance to our most powerful antibiotics. Now researchers have created a new molecule that can make previously antibiotic-resistant bacteria vulnerable to existing drugs again.
