Porpoise Galaxy The night sky holds many stunning views, and this is certainly one of them. This pair of galaxies called Arp 142 is better known as the Porpoise Galaxy, although it rather looks like a penguin […]

An ambitious proposal suggests that a giant quantum computer able to solve currently computationally unsolvable problems such as factoring large numbers could be built based on existing technology. Winfried Hensiger of the University of Sussex […]

Bell’s inequality, which provides a test of whether a system is quantum or classical, is usually derived on the assumption that there are no correlations between the experimenter’s choice of measurement settings or anything else […]

Time crystals are a new form of non-equilibrium matter that has periodic motion even in its ground state. Norman Yao of the University of California, Berkeley, and colleagues have published detailed instructions for how to […]

Tracker installation At the beginning of March, the CMS collaboration successfully replaced the heart of its detector: the pixel tracker. This innermost layer of the CMS detector, a cylindrical device containing 124 million sensitive silicon sensors that […]
