Google Talk Asks: Do You Fall At Same Rate As Your Mirror Image?

Theoretical physicist Stephon Alexander gave a Google Tech Talk earlier this week, which Google has now made available for viewing. The talk is called “Do you fall at the same rate as your mirror image?” Intrigued yet? Here’s the abstract: Over the past decade, based on work pioneered by the speaker, cosmologists have had reason to suspect that Einstein’s gravity …

German Physicists Build First Quantum Network

It was recently reported that scientists were able to overcome some of the problems with data degradation caused by computing in a quantum environment, and now Nature reports that physicists were able to build the first-ever working quantum network. Though, the the fibre optic network is in its infancy, as researchers reported a mere .2 percent accuracy in data that …

Scientists Create First Quantum Network

Scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Garching, Germany have successfully created the world’s first quatum network. A team of scientists led by Professor Gerhard Rempe, director at the institute and head of the Quantum Dynamics devision, set up the first elementary quantum network by coupling single-atom nodes that communicate quantum information via the coherent exchange of …
