TWENTY years ago North America, Europe and Japan produced almost all of the world’s science. They were the aristocrats of technical knowledge, presiding over a centuries-old regime. They spent the most, published the most and patented the most. And what they produced fed back into their industrial, military and medical complexes to push forward innovation, productivity, power, health and prosperity.
All good things, though, come to an end, and ...
Researchers have devised a theoretical quantum computer that could function even if one in four quantum bits (qubits) were missing.
With scientists struggling to build devices as large as three qubits, the new method could bring future applications closer by lowering the engineering requirements of a functional machine.
University of Queensland physicist Thomas Stace worked with Sean Barrett of the ...
Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope took advantage of a giant cosmic magnifying glass to create one of the sharpest and most detailed maps of dark matter in the universe. Dark matter is an invisible and unknown substance that makes up the bulk of the universe's mass.
