‘Impossible’ Quantum Space Engine That Breaks Laws Of Physics Is About To Be Tested In Space

Posted by in categories: quantum physics, space travel

A couple of years ago, researchers at NASA’s Johnson Space Centre discovered a thruster system which actually generates thrust, despite requiring absolutely no propellant. The implications of this discovery are far-reaching; applications for space flight and other technologies which require propulsion could one day become far cheaper, allowing space exploration to expand exponentially. The existence of this technology also further validates the fact that energy can be derived from tapping into the quantum vacuum, also known as “zero-point.”

Bottom line is that space is not empty, and the energy which lies within it can be used. This was experimentally confirmed when the Casimir Effect illustrated zero point or vacuum state energy, which predicts that two metal plates close together attract each other due to an imbalance in the quantum fluctuations (source)(source).

Google’s Quantum Dream Machine Might Be A Reality Sooner Than You Expected

Posted by in categories: quantum physics, supercomputing, transportation

If all goes according to the plan, tech giant Google might be able to present the world with a phenomenally powerful quantum computer by the end of 2017.

Googler John Martinis and his team of researchers have been working on how quantum computers could be worked out for a long duration of 30 years. And now, it seems, they’re finally on the verge of making the wonder computer a reality. Since the computer would harness the unusual properties of quantum physics that take birth in extreme circumstances like those on the ultra-cold chip, the wonder computer would allow a Google coder to run the calculations he/she requires in a short interval of time like in the duration of a tea/coffee break. This would be quite impressive as the supercomputers of today would take millions of years to run the same calculations. This means, the quantum computer would be able to outperform conventional computers—a concept known as quantum supremacy. But, the Google software, which has been developed on ordinary computers to answer questions or drive cars, is still capable of becoming more intelligent.

Quantum Mechanics Revisited: Physicists Propose New Structure of Time

Posted by in categories: information science, particle physics, quantum physics

Read a little further into the paper, and things get really weird. If the equations of quantum mechanics must be altered in accordance with the new research, then it will give rise to a new and very curious definition of time.

Time is, essentially, a “crystal”—a highly organized lattice of discrete “particles,” or regularly repeating segments.

Scientists Baffled as Hundreds of Dead Horseshoe Crabs Wash Ashore in Japan

Posted by in category: existential risks

Horseshoe crabs are known as “living fossils” and for good reason. The blue-blooded, side-walking arthropods have been around for 200 million years, surviving the last five mass extinctions. But something appears to be wrong as hundreds of dead horseshoe crabs have recently washed ashore in southern Japan, leaving scientists confounded.

One population of horseshoe crabs, or “warrior helmet crabs” as they’re known in Japan, make an annual trek to their spawning grounds around the tidal flats of Kita-Kyushu. Some inevitably die in the process, but the number of dead this year is uncharacteristically high, prompting concern.

As reported in AFP, a local conservation group had been spotting upwards of five to 10 remains every day during the egg-laying period, prompting a more thorough investigation. By the time the conservationists were finished counting they tallied up about 500 dead horseshoe crabs. That’s about eight times higher than normal, and about 20 percent of the local population. It takes a long time for young horseshoe crabs to mature, so this is a major setback for a species already in trouble.

China to Launch Live-In SpaceLab Today –“Will be Home to Two Astronauts for 30 Days”

Posted by in category: satellites

China will launch its Tiangong-2 space lab from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center on a Long March-2F T2 rocket in northwestern China’s Gobi desert at 10:04 p.m. Thursday as part of an increasingly ambitious space program that aims for a manned space station by around 2022.

Cold plasma will heal non-healing wounds

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, particle physics

Russian scientists have found that treating cells with cold plasma leads to their regeneration and rejuvenation. This result can be used to develop a plasma therapy program for patients with non-healing wounds. The paper has been published in the Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics.

Non-healing wounds make it more difficult to provide effective treatment to patients and are therefore a serious problem faced by doctors. These wounds can be caused by damage to blood vessels in the case of diabetes, failure of the immune system resulting from an HIV infection or cancers, or slow cell division in elderly people. Treatment of non-healing wounds by conventional methods is very difficult, and in some cases impossible.

Cold atmospheric-pressure plasma refers to a partially ionized gas—the proportion of charged particles in the gas is close to 1 percent, with a temperature below 100,000 K. Its application in biology and medicine is possible through the advent of plasma sources generating jets at 30–40?°C.

Shocking News Alien Mega structure In Universe

Posted by in categories: alien life, satellites

Before 3- months ago, news broke that a giant “alien mega structure” could survive around bizarre-looking star 1,500 light-years away. The 1st signs of this space peculiarity came from NASA’s planet-hunting Kepler space telescope, which continually watched the star’s region of the sky between 2009 and 2013. The majority planet-hosting stars looking small, regular dips in light when their planets pass in front of them. But Tabby’s star dipped randomly throughout the 4-years, from time to time losing as much as 20 percent of its brightness. In September 2015, a group led by Tabetha Boyajian of Yale University, who lend the star its informal name, tried to create sense of this strange signal. Ultimately they determined that dust from a huge cloud of comets was the top explanation. Click Below Link To Play Video Online Shocking News Alien Mega structure In Universe Video;

A month later, the star complete headline crossways the globe thanks to a paper by Jason Wright of Pennsylvania State University and his fellows, who suggested that “alien mega structures”, such as satellites designed to gather light from the star, could be responsible for the signal.

While the scene of aliens was 1st launched by Penn State Scientist Jason Wright, almost everybody in the astronomy the people agreed that the chances that this was the case were “very low.”
