Droughts brought on by a warming world will starve the trees of water
Molecular machines, much smaller than single cells, may one day be able to deliver drugs to kill cancer cells or patrol your body for signs of disease. But many applications of these machines require large arrays of rock-hard moving parts, which would be difficult to build with typical biological structures.
If you’re like most of our readers, you’re probably reading this right now on your mobile, which means there’s also a chance you’re reading it on a broken, fragmented phone screen.
Scientists just took a big step towards the goal of quantum computers, and even a quantum internet to connect them, after successfully using photons to transfer quantum information between a cold atomic gas and a solid crystal.

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.
Here’s how. OR Yes please.
Up until now, it’s only been possible to track where cells are in their life cycle once they’re dead. However, a new study outlines a method of analysing living cells by taking a close look at their nucleus.
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
Lab tests only, so far
You blink 15-20 times per minute. If you watch a 150-minute movie, that translates to about 15 minutes worth of screen time. That’s a lot of Middle Earth to miss! (No wonder the Eye of Sauron never blinks.) Don’t worry though: studies suggest that our brains have figured out a way to compensate.Related: Time Isn’t Constant For Your Brain

A First: Israeli Scientists "Have Used the Human Mind to Control Nano Robots Inside a Living Creature"
Researchers at Bar Ilan University and the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya, both in Israel, have developed new technology that allows tiny bots to release drugs into the body controlled by human thought alone. The test involved a man using his…
