Quantum Darwinism, an Idea to Explain Objective Reality, Passes First Tests

But Max Planck, Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr and their contemporaries […]

Physicists Have Reversed Time on The Smallest Scale by Using a Quantum Computer

It's easy to take time's arrow for granted - but the gears of physics actually work just as smoothly in reverse. Maybe that time machine is possible after all? An experiment earlier this year shows just how much wiggle room we can expect when it comes to distinguishing the past from the future, at least on a quantum scale. It might not allow us to relive the 1960s, but it […]
