Our Strength Lies in Our Humanity

Everything is Connected

There are times in our lives when it’s easy to forget how connected everything is. Times when life gets a little too tough and stressful and we end up paying more attention to our own well being in a way that disregards the cost and the consequences to the world out there; the people, the environment and everything else that’s a part of it. We find ourselves being selfish – not because we want to be but because circumstances force us to be.

That’s how the world got into the state that it’s in now. Here’s a neat 20 minute video that explains it all.

On this website I’ll be exploring and adding videos and articles that help to expand and explain the rich and diverse complexity of the world we live in – complex but not complicated.

Semiliquid chains pulled out of a sea of microparticles

An electrode brought to the surface of a liquid that contains microparticles can be used to pull out surprisingly long chains of particles. Curiously enough, the particles in the chains are held together by a thin layer of liquid that covers them. […] Read More

Evidence for the Majorana fermion, a particle that’s its own antiparticle

In a discovery that concludes an 80-year quest, researchers found evidence of particles that are their own antiparticles. These ‘Majorana fermions’ could one day help make quantum computers more robust. […] Read More

Scientists observe gravitational anomaly on Earth

Modern physics has accustomed us to strange and counterintuitive notions of reality—especially quantum physics which is famous for leaving physical objects in strange states of superposition. For example, Schrödinger’s cat, who finds itself unable to decide if it is dead or alive. Sometimes however quantum mechanics is more decisive and even destructive. […] Read More

Most precise measurement of the proton’s mass

By means of precision measurements on a single proton, scientists have been able to improve the precision of the measurement of the mass of the proton by a factor of three and also corrected the existing value, finding it is significantly lighter than previously believed. […] Read More

Magnetic quantum objects in a ‘nano egg carton’

Magnetic quantum objects in superconductors, so-called “fluxons,” are particularly suitable for the storage and processing of data bits. Computer circuits based on fluxons could be operated with significantly higher speed while dissipating much less heat. Physicists working with Wolfgang Lang at the University of Vienna and their colleagues at the Johannes-Kepler-University Linz have developed a “quantum egg carton” with a novel and simple method. They realized a stable and regular arrangement of hundreds of thousands of fluxons—a groundbreaking development for circuits based on fluxons. The results appear in the journal Physical Review Applied of the American Physical Society. […] Read More

Researchers demonstrate new way to produce high-density clusters of aligned quantum sensors in diamond

Imagine a sensor so sensitive it can detect changes in the proton concentration of a single protein, within a single cell. This level of insight would reveal elusive quantum-scale dynamics of that protein’s function, potentially even in real time, but demands a sensor with controllable features at a similar scale.
