Online activists are silencing us, scientists say
Scientists researching treatments for chronic fatigue syndrome say they face online abuse and harassment. Some are leaving the field. It’s a ‘new normal,’ they say, and patients may lose out.
Scientists have reversed the direction of time with a quantum computer.
The breakthrough study seems to contradict basic laws of physics and could alter our understanding of the processes governing the universe.
@yukiame Und das haben wir selbst geschehen lassen, als wir uns zu wenig daran störten, dass Geflüchtete Fingerabdrücke abgeben müssen. Sie probieren es immer erst an den Schwachen aus und dann trifft es uns alle.
Listening to quantum radio
Researchers at Delft University of Technology have created a quantum circuit to listen to the weakest radio signal allowed by quantum mechanics. This new quantum circuit opens the door to possible future applications in areas such as radio astronomy and medicine (MRI). It also enables experiments to shed light on the interplay between quantum mechanics and gravity.
The gravitational mass carried by sound waves
We show that the commonly accepted statement that sound waves do not transport mass is only true at linear order. [...] We show that, in fact, sound waves do carry mass---in particular, gravitational mass. This implies that a sound wave not only is affected by gravity but also generates a tiny gravitational field...
Why Chips Die
Semiconductor devices face many hazards before and after manufacturing that can cause them to fail prematurely.
Falls euch mal wieder jemand erzählt, Transgender wäre nur eine Modeerscheinung und alles sei Einbildung:
Vielleicht ist das mal wieder ein kleiner Schritt in Richtung eines Google-freien Internets:
Trail-blazing women of Kew - fighting for equal pay in 1896
Scientists from Heriot-Watt University have welded glass and metal together using an ultrafast laser system, in a breakthrough for the manufacturing industry.
Target confirming an offensive cyber operation
For the first time in the “history of cyber conflicts” (call it like that) we have seen the media of one country signaling an offensive cyberattack on a target located in another country, and the media of the targeted country confirm that the operation has happened. This is without a precedence, and will have consequences.
