Researchers are creepily close to predicting when you’re going to die

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

If death is in the cards, it may also be in your blood.

Measurements of 14 metabolic substances in blood were pretty good at predicting whether people were likely to die in the next five to 10 years. The data was published this week in Nature Communications.

In a backyard shed in a small US town, a ‘frozen dead guy’ sits in a homemade cryogenic chamber

Posted by in category: futurism

In a backyard shed in the snowy town of Nederland in the United States lies the frozen corpse of Bredo Morstoel.

The Norwegian man died 30 years ago. If plans go accordingly, he may one day walk again.

Inside Bredo’s timber mausoleum, a man named Brad Wickham throws bricks of dry ice onto a metal casket.

Quantum radar has been demonstrated for the first time

Posted by in categories: computing, encryption, quantum physics

One of the advantages of the quantum revolution is the ability to sense the world in a new way. The general idea is to use the special properties of quantum mechanics to make measurements or produce images that are otherwise impossible.

Much of this work is done with photons. But as far as the electromagnetic spectrum is concerned, the quantum revolution has been a little one-sided. Almost all the advances in quantum computing, cryptography, teleportation, and so on have involved visible or near-visible light.

Complex quantum teleportation achieved for the first time

Posted by in categories: computing, particle physics, quantum physics

Yay :3


Austrian and Chinese scientists have succeeded in teleporting three-dimensional quantum states for the first time. High-dimensional teleportation could play an important role in future quantum computers.

Researchers from the Austrian Academy of Sciences and the University of Vienna have experimentally demonstrated what was previously only a theoretical possibility. Together with quantum physicists from the University of Science and Technology of China, they have succeeded in teleporting complex high-dimensional quantum states. The research teams report this international first in the journal Physical Review Letters.

The Bomb-Proof Miracle Materials That Will Make the Future Safer

Posted by in categories: futurism, materials

Circa 2013


When a bomb explodes, you can’t outmaneuver it; you probably can’t even take cover quickly enough to protect yourself. Instead, you have to hope that there’s something—anything—already in the way that can shield you from the blast. Here are five of the best future bomb-proof materials that could end up saving lives in our increasingly uncertain future.

AI Created a 3D Replica of Our Universe. We Have No Idea How It Works

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, space

The first-ever artificial intelligence simulation of the universe seems to work like the real thing — and is almost as mysterious.

Researchers reported the new simulation June 24 in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The goal was to create a virtual version of the cosmos in order to simulate different conditions for the universe’s beginning, but the scientists also hope to study their own simulation to understand why it works so well.

“It’s like teaching image-recognition software with lots of pictures of cats and dogs, but then it’s able to recognize elephants,” study co-author Shirley Ho, a theoretical astrophysicist at the Center for Computational Astrophysics in New York City, said in a statement. “Nobody knows how it does this, and it’s a great mystery to be solved.” [Far-Out Discoveries About the Universe’s Beginnings].

How We Recreated The Early Universe In The Laboratory

Posted by in categories: cosmology, particle physics

One of the all-time great mysteries in physics is why our universe contains more matter than antimatter, which is the equivalent of matter but with the opposite charge. To tackle this question, our international team of researchers have managed to create a plasma of equal amounts of matter and antimatter – a condition we think made up the early universe.

Matter as we know it appears in four different states: solid, liquid, gas, and plasma, which is a really hot gas where the atoms have been stripped of their electrons. However, there is also a fifth, exotic state: a matter-antimatter plasma, in which there is complete symmetry between negative particles (electrons) and positive particles (positrons).

This peculiar state of matter is believed to be present in the atmosphere of extreme astrophysical objects, such as black holes and pulsars. It is also thought to have been the fundamental constituent of the universe in its infancy, in particular during the Leptonic era, starting approximately one second after the Big Bang.

China is using AI to predict who will commit crime next

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

This sounds a little like Minority Report to us. China is looking into predictive analytics to help authorities stop suspects before a crime is committed.

According to a report from the Financial Times, authorities are tapping on facial recognition tech, and combining that with predictive intelligence to notify police of potential criminals, based on their behaviour patterns.

Guangzhou-headquartered Cloud Walk has been trialing its facial recognition system that tracks a person’s movements. Based on where someone goes, and when, it hands them a rating of how at risk they are of committing a crime.

Star crust is 10 billion times stronger than steel

Posted by in categories: cosmology, physics

By Rachel Courtland

The crust of neutron stars is 10 billion times stronger than steel, according to new simulations. That makes the surface of these ultra-dense stars tough enough to support long-lived bulges that could produce gravitational waves detectable by experiments on Earth.

Neutron stars are the cores left behind when relatively massive stars explode in supernovae. They are incredibly dense, packing about as much mass as the sun into a sphere just 20 kilometres or so across, and some rotate hundreds of times per second.
