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…

Quantum experiments in space – Call for international collaboration Labmate Online

Leading experts are calling on the scientific, engineering, industrial and political communities to join forces and conduct quantum experiments in space where the optimal conditions to test the basic principles of nature would exist. “There is a great effort and…

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,…

Chinese space station prepares to host 1,000 science experiments

China launched the core of its space station in April and sent three astronauts in June. But while the space station is unlikely to be finished until late 2022, there is already a long line of experiments from around the…

The “pit of despair” was one of the most unethical experiments in modern science

In a quest to understand the nature of depression and loneliness, an influential scientist in the late 1960s devised a scientific apparatus more akin to a monkey torture apparatus. The experiment was developed by American psychologist Harry Harlow in hopes…

Don’t be surprised if EmDrive experiences never work

Every few years, the “EmDrive”, a proposed method of generating rocket thrust without any exhaust, hits the headlines. Each time, everyone wonders: could that be it? Could this be the technological leap to revolutionize space flights? Don’t hold your breath….

Hands-on experiences keep students sharp during the summer months

Camp Invention is a national STEM summer camp for students from Kindergarten to Grade 6. The program has been in Coshocton since 2009 with Coshocton camps and Warsaw primary schools. This year’s mods included building solar-powered robots, a duck launcher,…

Shock-Free Compression Experiments Set New Extreme Pressure Scales

Using the world’s most energetic laser and the world’s most powerful pulsed power plant, an international research team has derived new pressure scales for gold and platinum at 1 teapascal. To test the Standard Model of particle physics, scientists often…
