Physicists believe that the process of quantum entanglement may link wormholes from one part of the Universe to another.
Scientists break world record for achieving quantum state at room temperature and overcome a major hurdle for building quantum computers.
Scientists have discovered something previously considered impossible to explain: how alcohol is formed and destroyed in space.
New quantum thermometer could measure the coldest matter known and could provide new information about black holes.
Looks like today's the day to head out to the garage and build yourself a perpetual motion machine, since Japanese physicists have just shown how to smash the classical second law of thermodynamics to smithereens using quantum entanglement.
Quantum cryptography may be theoretically secure, but in practice, there are certain limitations that allow clever attackers to read encrypted messages. A new system that ditches quantum mechanics for classical mechanics may prove to be even more secure, backed up by the Second Law of Thermodynamics.
It doesn't get much more futuristic than "universal quantum network," but we're going to have to find something else to pine over, since a UQN now exists. A group from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics has tied the quantum states of two atoms together using photons, creating the first network of qubits.
Throw away that dusty Magic 8-Ball. All your key decisions can now be made with a new toy operating on the theory behind an experiment in quantum mechanics. I should point out before we continue there is no real dead cat involved with the toy, just the theory behind it. It's fun! I promise.
Creating light is something that's usually done with a light switch, right? But what if you didn't have a light switch? A team of Swedish physicists were presented with such a conundrum, so they've gone and convinced a bunch of photons to spontaneously create themselves out of nothingness.
My fantasy. Your fantasy. Marty McFly's 2015 reality from Back to the Future Part II. The hoverboard now exists, for real, thanks to the magic of superconducting magnets, quantum levitation, and the boundless brilliance and ingenuity of the French.
