‘Gyroscope’ molecules form crystal that’s both solid and full of motion

Molecular machines, much smaller than single cells, may one day be able to deliver drugs to kill cancer cells or patrol your body for signs of disease. But many applications of these machines require large arrays of rock-hard moving parts, which would be difficult to build with typical biological structures.

Physicists Just Transferred Quantum Data Between Different Materials For The First Time

Scientists just took a big step towards the goal of quantum computers, and even a quantum internet to connect them, after successfully using photons to transfer quantum information between a cold atomic gas and a solid crystal.

High-speed Quantum Memory for Photons

Physicists from the University of Basel have developed a memory that can store photons. These quantum particles travel at the speed of light and are thus suitable for high-speed data transfer. The researchers were able to store them in an atomic vapor and read them

Moviegoers Blink In Sync Because The Brain Doesn't …

You blink 15-20 times per minute. If you watch a 150-minute movie, that translates to about 15 minutes worth of screen time. That’s a lot of Middle Earth to miss! (No wonder the Eye of Sauron never blinks.) Don’t worry though: studies suggest that our brains have figured out a way to compensate.Related: Time Isn’t Constant For Your Brain

A First: Israeli Scientists "Have Used the Human Mind to Control Nano Robots Inside a Living Creature"

Researchers at Bar Ilan University and the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya, both in Israel, have developed new technology that allows tiny bots to release drugs into the body controlled by human thought alone. The test involved a man using his…
