Have you ever experienced time slowing down or speeding up? A new study suggests that our moment-to-moment perception of time is not continuous but may stretch or shrink with each heartbeat.
A new quantum twist – scientists accidentally create a very powerful microscope, capable of seeing quantum electronic waves in ways that were unimaginable before.
A recent study published in the journal Nature by researchers from the Weizmann Institute of Science introduces a new tool that makes use of the wave-particle duality of electrons.
In the early 1500’s, Leonardo da Vinci explored gravity as a form of acceleration and modelled the gravitational constant to around 97% accuracy.
Caltech engineers have discovered that Leonardo da Vinci’s understanding of gravity, although not entirely accurate, was ahead of his time by centuries.
Breakthrough! Scientists demonstrate that quantum bits can directly transfer between quantum computer microchips allowing chips to slot together like a jigsaw puzzle.
Researchers have demonstrated for the first time that quantum bits (qubits) can directly transfer between quantum computer microchips and demonstrated this with record-breaking speed and accuracy.
This loofah-inspired, sun-driven gel could purify all the water you’ll need in a single day.
Researchers have found a solution inspired by loofah sponges that could purify enough water to meet a person’s daily needs, even on cloudy days.
Solar power scientists are now using molten salt to store the sun’s energy. Here’s the science of how it works.
The Dunhuang molten salt solar power plant will provide 390 million kWh of clean power each year and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by more than 3500 tons. And it can run 24-hours a day, even when the sun does not shine. It does this by storing energy in a molten salt solution for later use.
Listen up, people. Scientists create sound so loud, it instantly boils water and ruptures internal organs.
Bang your head! Scientists at Stanford University created a sound that measures a whopping 270 decibels. The sound was created underwater and is believed to be the limit of how loud a sound can be.
Scientists capture first ever photo of light behaving as both a particle and a wave – and it’s a beauty.
Scientists have long believed that light can behave as both a particle and a wave but until today – it’s been a bit difficult to visualize and impossible to photograph. Now, researchers in Switzerland have taken the first ever picture of light as both a wave and a particle – and it’s a beauty!
Umm, yummy electrons – scientists discover bacteria that eat pure electrons
Scientists at the University Of Southern California (USC) have discovered bacteria that survive on nothing but electricity. Rather than eat food, they eat (and excrete) pure electrons. This is a, ahem, shocking discovery as almost all life on earth survives by consuming sugar to live.
