3D printing helps ultra-cold quantum experiments get small

The Nottingham team’s experiment does not take an entire table – it has a volume of 0.15 cubic meters, making it slightly larger than a stack of 10 large pizza boxes. “It’s very, very small. We have reduced the size…

Wharton High School physics students take their experiments to new heights at MOSI

MOSI Space Weekend Students in Hillsborough County schools had the chance to witness their own takeoff – throwing a balloon from a high altitude. Elizabeth Fry of FOX 13 has the story. TAMPA, Florida – Even though the SpaceX rocket…

Mysterious radioactive cubes found around the United States are likely Nazi experiments

You know how in Captain America: The First Avenger There is a Nazi organization that tries to harness the power of a mysterious glowing cube in order to create a weapon of mass destruction that will dominate their enemies, only…

Unrealistic experiments mean that the real impact of nitrogen pollution on the environment is unknown – ScienceDaily

Unrealistic science experiments mean the true impact of nitrogen pollution on the environment remains poorly understood, a new study warns. Human actions – primarily the burning of biomass and fossil fuels – have dramatically altered the global nitrogen cycle, affecting…

Experiments prove quantum computational errors are correlated, linked to cosmic rays

In experiments at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, researchers found that fluctuations in the electrical charge of several quantum bits, or “qubits,” can be strongly correlated, as opposed to completely random and independent. The team also linked tiny disturbances causing errors…

Could experiments in space provide answers to quantum mechanics?

Experts at Queen’s University Belfast are calling for a $ 1 billion investment to pursue space as the next quantum frontier. 20th century science has uncovered mysteries concerning both the very large and the very small. Space exploration has brought…

China to send student experiences to deep space on 2 upcoming missions

China’s upcoming exploration mission to the Lunar South Pole will carry one of more than 500 experiments designed and submitted by students across the country. China plans to launch its Chang’e 7 spacecraft circa 2024. It will include a lander,…

Particle physics experiments strengthen evidence for a new force of nature

A recently completed experiment at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) on the outskirts of Chicago produced strong data suggesting that a new force of nature may have been discovered. If this result is ultimately confirmed, it would require a…
