The End of the RNA World Is Near, Biochemists Argue | Quanta Magazine

For decades, an origin-of-life story starring RNA has prevailed. New research may be shaking that theory’s hold on our understanding of life’s beginnings.

Newfound Wormhole Allows Information to Escape Black Holes | Quanta Magazine

Physicists theorize that a new “traversable” kind of wormhole could resolve a baffling paradox and rescue information that falls into black holes.

High-speed Quantum Memory for Photons

Physicists from the University of Basel have developed a memory that can store photons. These quantum particles travel at the speed of light and are thus suitable for high-speed data transfer. The researchers were able to store them in an atomic vapor and read them

Scientists say all the world's data can fit on a DNA hard drive the size of a teaspoon

Even though it’s looking increasingly likely that humanity will find a way to wipe itself off the face of the Earth, there’s a chance that our creative output may live on. Servers, hard drives, flash drives, and disks will degrade (as will our libraries of paper books, of course), but a group of researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute…

Data Storage In Crystal Quartz Will Change Everything!

There’s a new type of storage device which many tech corporations have been diving into in secret for the past few years, which Hitachi newly came out with a technology they are developing which is fundamentally a sheet of Quartz Glass, which could possibly save data for up to 300 Million Years!

If you didn’t know anything about storage devices that we at present have, but anything from records, CD’s, USB sticks, magnetic tape, none of these can even lay a finger on this new, very inspiring technology.

Reprogramming of DNA observed in human germ cells for first time

However, the study, published today in the journal Cell, shows some regions of our DNA – including those associated with conditions such as obesity and schizophrenia – resist complete reprogramming.
