Thousands of Swedes are inserting microchips into themselves – here’s why

Thousands of Swedes are inserting microchips into themselves – here’s why Chips with everything. www.shutterstock.com Moa Petersén, Lund University Thousands of people in Sweden have inserted microchips, which can function as contactless credit cards, key cards and even rail cards, into their bodies. Once the chip is underneath your skin, there is no longer any…

Designer materials with completely random structures might enable quantum computing

Topological randomness may be the answer for lossless electronics and making the nuts and bolts of quantum computers. Complete randomness in the structures of superconductors and insulators could lower the requirements of pristine crystalline ordering — and make them more accessible to industry. Read More

NOvA experiment sees strong evidence for antineutrino oscillation

The NOvA collaboration has announced its first results using antineutrinos, and has seen strong evidence of muon antineutrinos oscillating into electron antineutrinos over long distances, a phenomenon that has never been unambiguously observed. Read More

Atomic clock comparison confirms key assumptions of ‘Einstein’s elevator’

By comparing different types of remote atomic clocks, physicists have performed the most accurate test ever of a key principle underlying Albert Einstein’s famous theory of general relativity, which describes how gravity relates to space and time. Read More
