why and how we’re building and securing the quantum internet

In the next ten years or so, your internet experience will be the same as today. But that internet may be built on complex quantum interactions instead of bits and bytes flying between routers and servers.

how close to a viable warp drive are we?

Paradoxically, we’re both closer and farther from zooming across the galaxy than you might think…

oh quantum causality, we hardly knew ye…

A new experiment shows that the quantum world obeys causality only begrudgingly, and sometimes, not at all...

to boost data density, chill and apply magnetism

The good news is that we found a way to drastically increase storage density for computers. The bad news is that it's not very practical.

we call it zero point for a reason…

Zero point energy is a favorite term for sci-fi writers and physics cranks. But while they think it means free energy from nothing, it's actually just a quantum state.

so what’s the fine for breaking relativity?

An experiment has detected neutrinos moving slightly faster than the speed of light and the scientists can't believe their results.

when bad quantum physics invade military news

Quantum communication is a powerful tool, but it's not impossible to hack or very practical yet, especially for military purposes.

presenting paradox-free quantum time travel?

Quantum time travel experiments hint that physics creates closed time loops, meaning you can't change history.

hold on to your protons. this could be huge…

Protons might be a little smaller than we thought, and that means we may need to rewrite a lot of the rules we thought we understood about the quantum world.

quantum entanglement gets even weirder…

We still have no idea how quantum entanglement works, but we know it's much, much faster than the speed of light...
