Scientists Discover Simple Innovation to Make Quantum States Last 10,000 Times Longer

A team of scientists at the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering announced the discovery of a simple modification that allows quantum systems to stay operational — or “coherent” — 10,000 times longer than before. Credit: University of Chicago Simple innovation expected to open multiple new avenues for quantum science. If we can…

Astronomers have found our Milky Way’s galactic twin

chaotic and unstable, unlike our relatively sedate galaxy. But this new finding challenges that belief." data-reactid="14" type="text">Scientists had previously believed that all galaxies which formed in the early universe were chaotic and unstable, unlike our relatively sedate galaxy. But this new finding challenges that belief.“This result represents a breakthrough in the field of galaxy formation, showing…

Már megállíthatatlan a grönlandi jégmező olvadása

Egy friss amerikai kutatás azt mondja, hogy a grönlandi jégmező akkor is mindenképpen tovább olvadna, ha sikerülne megállítani a felmelegedést - írja a Nature.  A Grönland több mint 200 nagy gleccseréről majdnem negyven éven át rögzített műholdadatok alapján készült tanulmány, ami azt állapította meg, hogy  a gleccserek változása elérte a azt a pontot, amikor a jégtakarót…

Hubble discovered the cause of mysterious dimming of supergiant star Betelgeuse

This four-panel graphic illustrates how the southern region of the rapidly evolving, bright, red supergiant star Betelgeuse may have suddenly become fainter for several months during late 2019 and early 2020. In the first two panels, as seen in ultraviolet light with the Hubble Space Telescope, a bright, hot blob of plasma is ejected from…

Investigation of five-layered cuprate reveals Fermi pockets

Small Fermi pockets revealed by laser-ARPES. Credit: Science (2020). DOI: 10.1126/science.aay7311 A team of researchers affiliated with a host of institutions in Japan and one in the U.K has observed Fermi pockets during experiments with a five-layered cuprate, confirming theories. In their paper published in the journal Science, the group describes their study of the…

We May Finally Know What Killed The Woolly Rhinos, And It Wasn’t People

A woolly brown rhinoceros that weighed two tons once roamed northeastern Siberia before mysteriously disappearing around 14,000 years ago. Was its demise caused by humans, or the warming climate of the time? A new study by a Swedish and Russian team of scientists who examined DNA fragments from the remains of 14 of these prehistoric mammals…

Chemists create complex, oxygen-containing molecules that are normally made by plants -Medical.net

Chemists at Scripps Research have efficiently created three families of complex, oxygen-containing molecules that are normally obtainable only from plants. These molecules, called terpenes, are potential starting points for new drugs and other high-value products--marking an important development for multiple industries. In addition, the new approach could allow chemists to build many other classes of…

The behavior of therapeutic antibodies in immunotherapy

Since the late 1990s, immunotherapy has been the frontline treatment against lymphomas where synthetic antibodies are used to stop the proliferation of cancerous white blood cells. However, in the more than 20 years since their use began, the molecular mechanisms that underlie this therapy are still little understood. For the first time, scientists from the…
