Discovery Of Time Crystal Can Alter The Future Of Quantum Computing

You might have heard of many things in Science that are hard to understand just because of how bizarre they sound. Physicists especially are used to of dealing with such ideas. Whether it’s levitating superconducting materials or the mind-bending theory of time dilation – they have dealt with all of these. But even they have …

Radioactive Diamond Batteries Could Be A Solution For Nuclear Waste

With the constant requirement of energy and at the same time a pressure to manage nuclear waste, a very opportune possibility came out of an invention in 2018. A team of researchers from the University of Bristol managed to build a robot, called “dragon egg”, which was powered by nuclear energy from a radioactive battery. …

New Experiment Shows That The Fate Of Schrodinger’s Cat Isn’t In the Hands Of Gravity

It has been more than a century and greatest scientists of the world have struggled with a certain mathematical certainty according to which objects can be in many different positions at the same time until something causes them to snap in one place. Many physicists have wondered about what could be responsible for forcing particles …

Anosmia, or ‘Smell Blindness,’ helps diagnose COVID-19

Not able to smell even the strongest perfume is called anosmia — otherwise known as “smell blindness” — and doctors think it might be a key to diagnosing the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in people who aren’t displaying other symptoms. Since the COVID-19 outbreak began, a lot has been made of the fever and dry cough, …
