Scientists at the University of California at Berkley, believe that in the near future, computers will compute with nanometer-sized bar-magnets (nano-magnets) resulting in one million times less energy being required than current silicon-chip-based computers use.
This is possible because no electrons will be used for the computers logic operations. No electrons means…no electrical resistance and no [...]
Just when you thought lasers couldn’t get any cooler…the next potentially wicked type of laser may be a bio-laser.
Researchers have tweaked biological cells in such a way that they can actually emit monochromatic, coherent light…amplified beams of light in which all photons are essentially the same wavelength and in phase with each other…in other [...]
Well, shame on me. I probably should have heard about this website called ‘Nerd Approved’ before today. I’m almost too embarrassed to blog about it because there is some seriously nerd-tastic, yet very cool things there to explore inside Sean Fallon’s blog. I blame Rebecca, she’s supposed to be helping me keep up on ‘what’s cool and fun’ in cyberspace. (Just [...]
We recently received an interesting question:
I have an interesting idea that could in theory break the famous law that states nothing can travel faster than the speed of light. More specifically, a method of communicating that could instantly travel across space. Suppose a really long pole similar to the space elevator made out of [...]
Recently, two teams of scientists announced they had direct evidence that the core of neutron stars contain a bizarre type of matter.
Neutron stars are of course the corpses of massive stars as big as a city yet weighing as much as two of our suns.When the core of certain exploding supernovas collapse, the [...]
