Quantum Computing Science

From black holes to quantum computing – with Marika Taylor

In this talk, discover how a quantum computer makes use of the quantum states of subatomic particles to both store and process information and explore the long-standing question of what happens if you fall into a black hole, from a new quantum perspective.

Did AI Prove Our Proton Model WRONG?

The humble proton may seem simple enough, and they’re certainly common. People are made of cells, cells are made of molecules, molecules are made of atoms, atoms are made of electrons, protons, and neutrons. And protons are each made of three up or down quarks. Simple stuff, right? All except for that last part. Protons […]

Why Did Quantum Entanglement Win the Nobel Prize in Physics?

The Nobel prize in physics is typically awarded to scientists who make sense of nature; those whose discoveries render the universe more comprehensible. But the 2022 Nobel has been awarded to three physicists who revealed that the universe is even stranger than we thought thanks to Quantum Entanglement

The Equation That Explains (Nearly) Everything!

The Standard Model of particle physics is arguably the most successful theory in the history of physics. It predicts the results of experiments with a numerical precision unmatched by any other branch of science, and it does so almost unfailingly. The theory is encapsulated in a single equation known as the Standard Model Lagrangian. Today […]

Will Constructor Theory Rewrite Physics?

With my interesting in quantum computing, I have spent a lot more time than usual looking at videos like this. The people behind the greatest leaps in physics – Einstein, Newton, Heisenberg, all had the uncanny ability to see the fundamentals – see the deepest, underlying facts about the world, and from simple statements about […]

New Results in Quantum Tunneling vs. The Speed of Light

In a race, who would win: quantum tunneling or the reigning champ, the speed of light? Paradoxically, the most promising prospects for moving matter around faster than light may be to put a metaphorical brick wall in its way. New efforts in quantum tunneling – both theory and experiment – show that superluminal motion may […]

Is The Future Predetermined By Quantum Mechanics?

Einstein’s special theory of relativity combines space and time into one dynamic, unified entity – spacetime. But if time is connected to space, could the universe be anything but deterministic? And does that mean that the future is predestined PBS Space Time explores what this means.
