Can particles really be in two places at once?

Here’s another stellar video from Sabine Hossenfelder. Today I tell you what happened when I wrote an opinion piece for the Guardian about quantum computing, had to explain what a qubit is, and decided against using the phrase that it “can be in two states at the same time”. What happened next and what did […]

Time Crystals: a Breakthrough for Quantum Computing?

Google researchers claim to have created four-dimensional ‘time crystals. T Time crystals are a new phase of matter that seems to evade the laws of physics. Just like ordinary crystals repeat themselves in space, time crystals repeat themselves in time. Time crystals could become tools to detect magnetic fields or be used to diagnose what’s […]
