The UK government has called for experts to help it develop standards for bioplastic and biodegradable plastic, amid rising concern over greenwashing.
Big tech claims AI and digitization will bring a better future. But putting computers everywhere is bad for people and the planet
Rome wasn't built in a day – much like the world-famous companies that we all recognize today. Even they had to start from something – and you might be surprised when you find out that quite a few of them started out by doing things completely different than they are doing now.
Humans are within years of sending the first crewed mission to Mars. And then what? Maybe another 100 years from now we’ll eventually have the resources to launch deeper crewed missions from there, eventually reaching as far as… somewhere near Neptune. Our current method of space travel simply isn’t good enough to get us out …
A team of researchers from the Carnegie Institution for Science recently announced the discovery of 20 new planets surrounding Saturn. This moves the ringed planet past Jupiter as the most ‘moonfluential’ denizen of our solar system. The new moons were discovered using the Subaru telescope in Hawaii. After careful observation, the team determined that the …
An international team of researchers recently placed an entire molecule into a state of quantum superposition. This huge breakthrough represents the largest object to ever be observed in such a state – essentially occupying two places at once. And it may just be the eureka moment that defines our species’ far-future technology.
The quantum internet is coming sooner than you think—even sooner than quantum computing itself. When things change over, you might not even notice. But when they do, new rules will protect your data against attacks from computers that don’t even exist yet.
As a further development of its BoKlok modular housing project, SilviaBo is a collaboration with the Queen of Sweden and construction firm Skanska to make affordable and accessible homes for the older generations.
You know how sometimes you find yourself facing off against an enemy spaceship in a Wild West-inspired laser duel where whoever fires first wins?
What if I told you that a group of researchers (a murder of physicists?) came up with a way for you to manipulate the very fabric of time and space so that, no matter who fires first, you both die? That’s probably not the best pitch you’ve heard for developing quantum computers. But it’s an interesting one.
