This Is What Makes Quantum Computers Powerful Problem Solvers

In a previous article, I introduced the recent open-sourcing of quantum computing software by DWave. DWave is the maker of a quantum computer being used and studied by a number of groups, including NASA and Google, and there are other quantum computers in the works too. Although the field is still young, recent progress has …

Hydrogen turned into a metal for the first time. Technology and spaceflight might never be the same

By subjecting molecular hydrogen, a gas, to ungodly pressures higher than those found at the Earth’s core, Harvard researchers have accomplished the impossible: they’ve turned the lightest element into a metal. This is now the rarest and possibly the most expensive material on the planet. This may soon change as metal hydrogen moves from the stuff of alchemy to a critical resource in mankind’s quest of becoming an interstellar species.

What could we not know about water? It’s wet! It’s clear. It comes from rain. It boils. It makes snow and it makes ice! Does our government actually spend taxpayer money for you to study water?”

China to Explore Far Side of the Moon --"Could Lead to a Radio-Telescope Base"

China's increasingly ambitious space program plans to attempt the first-ever landing of a lunar probe on the moon's far side, a leading engineer said. The Chang'e 4 mission is planned for sometime before 2020, Zou Yongliao from the Chinese Academy of Sciences' moon exploration department told state broadcaster CCTV in an interview broadcast on Wednesday....

Amazing Archimedean screw ! – MechStuff

The name itself gives us an idea that it is invented by Archimedes. Now this man – Archimedes, was an Ancient Greek mathematician, engineer, inventor, physicist, & an astronomer(such a smartass). We are living in 21st century & still we are not able to think stuff like this on our own & this man did it in the 3rd century BC !!!!! We already discussed one of his works – buoyancy & we saw how do ships float ? So the Archimedean screw OR screw pump is just a simple machine consisting a cylinder & a helical surface on the inside part of cylinder. Basically, it...

The theory of parallel universes is not just maths – it is science that can be tested -

The existence of parallel universes may seem like something cooked up by science fiction writers, with little relevance to modern theoretical physics.
