With mega companies like Microsoft, Google and IBM quietly investing in quantum computing development, word is starting to leak out that the out-there technology with the sci-fi name might be a part of our lives sooner rather than later.
We may have found evidence that elusive, mysterious dark matter -- something for which there is no direct proof -- is actually sterile neutrinos. And that's going to take some explaining, by way of a speed-tutorial on quantum mechanics from Julian.
In a proposed experiment for the newly-recommissioned Large Hadron Collider, physicists want to focus on the Higgs boson for clues as to why the universe is filled with matter and not antimatter.
The LHC is on the verge of restarting for its second 3-year run that will see it double its collisional energy and dramatically step-up the search for new physics.
Time moves forward and only forward. We all know that. Or do we? A new study challenges our preconceived notions about time and posits the idea that the arrow of time could, in effect, go both ways, thanks to a mirror world we can't even see.
How does time stop everything from happening at once? What mechanism drives time forward, but not backward? Continue reading →
'Raise shields!' may be a familiar defensive order given in the Star Trek Universe, but according to space scientists in our Universe, Planet Earth has its own built-in invisible shield that buffers 'killer electrons' from orbital altitudes.
Sci-fi fans who hope humanity can one day zoom to distant corners of the universe via wormholes, as astronauts do in the recent film 'Interstellar,' shouldn't hold their breath.
