Researchers refine method for detecting quantum entanglement

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

RMIT quantum computing researchers have developed and demonstrated a method capable of efficiently detecting high-dimensional entanglement.

Entanglement in is the ability of two or more particles to be related to each other in ways which are beyond what is possible in classical physics.

Having information on a particle in an entangled ensemble reveals an “unnatural” amount of information on the other particles.

Physicists say they’ve figured out how to ‘see’ inside a black hole

Posted by in categories: cosmology, physics

Physicists have come up with a new way to predict what lies beyond the event horizon of a black hole, and it could give us a more accurate idea of their mysterious internal structures.

Thanks to the first — and now second — direct observation of gravitational waves emanating from what scientists think are black hole mergers, we’re starting to get our first real evidence that black holes do actually exist in reality, not just theory.

But even if we can prove they really do physically exist, there’s no getting around the fact that, thanks to their enormous gravitational pull, black holes swallow up anything that falls beyond their event horizon.

Scientists Say They’ve Unearthed A Completely New Kind Of Meteorite

Posted by in category: futurism

Scientists say that in a Swedish quarry, they’ve uncovered a meteorite unlike any other documented on the planet.

Its chemical makeup is unique among the 50,000 meteorites known on Earth, as Birger Schmitz of Sweden’s Lund University tells The Two-Way. “This does not resemble anything … even if we look at the big types that exist today and look at the broad ranges, this one falls completely outside of everything,” he says.

The black holes were 14 and 8 times the mass of the sun. As they spiraled together, they sent out gravitational waves.
