Everything in the universe is made up of just a few different types of subatomic particles. Learn more about these particles and how physicists have built their knowledge of them – including the discovery of the Higgs boson at the… Read More »Beyond the Atom: Remodelling Particle Physics
Today Sabine Hossenfelder speculates about the Nobel Prize in Physics, and explain why she thinks it’s overdue to go to Aspect, Clauser, and Zeilinger. The probably coolest thing to have come out of their work is quantum teleportation. Time stamps:… Read More »The 2nd Quantum Revolution: What is Quantum Teleportation?
Quantum computers aren’t just the next generation of supercomputers—they’re something else entirely. Before we can even begin to talk about their potential applications, we need to understand the fundamental physics that drives the theory of quantum computing.
