Designing A Next-Gen Ionic Thruster! (For Flight)

A YouTuber builds a working ionic thruster. Why? I have two answers. One, why not? and Secondly, for Beltalowda! In my attempt to answer that – I built a next-gen ionic thruster, and only shocked myself about a dozen times in the process. Thank you to Steven Barret at MIT for providing his airplane footage, […]

Counterfactual Quantum Computation is Really Weird

Events that could have happened but didn’t, so called counterfactual events, are but a mind-game in our reality. In quantum reality, however, they are quite real indeed. In this video I explain how this can be used to do a computation without actually running the computer. This is called “counterfactual computation” (or “counterfactual quantum computation” […]

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 […]
