This Negative Acceleration Milestone Might Translate to Negative Mass and FTL Travel

Researchers have created a fluid with negative mass that exhibits heretofore theorized behavior. This anomalous matter created in lab demonstrates the debated scientific hypothesis of negative mass. Imagine kicking a ball, and instead of rolling...

Gray Tin’s Quantum Computing Applications

By applying a mechanical force to strain its crystal structure, researchers forced Alpha-tin (gray tin) to behave like 3D graphene and exhibit a novel electronic phase, placing it in the recently discovered class of topological Dirac semimetals. Gray...

Where a Medieval Bishop, String Theory, and Quantum Computers Agree: Parallel Universes

What do Robert Grosseteste, bishop of Lincoln (1170-1253), the 'M' String Theory, and the current state of quantum supercomputing have in common? They all indicate that we exist in a universe of multiple dimensions.  As we...

New Study Supports Theory of Holographic Universe: do we Live in a Simulation?

Multinational researchers say they have found what they consider as the first observational evidence that the universe might be a complex hologram, and what we perceive as 3D 'real life' is actually a projection....

Quantum Data Transfer Record has Just Been Broken

Researchers have set a new record in data transfer efficiency via superdense coding, which involves using the quantum properties of particles (photons, protons, and electrons) to store and transmit as much quantum data as...

Time Crystals are the Newest Form of Matter

Scientists have created a non-equilibrium material that they call a 'Time Crystal.' The idea baffles the mind, but the science is solid. What does the introduction of this new form of matter mean for...

Scientists Announce Particle Accelerator Regulations in the Works

Particle accelerator beams are used by physicists and medical technicians alike, and new research is raising the standard for stability and intensity of those beams. This comes at a time where regulations for highly...
