MIT Technology Review reports that “researchers in China have
teleported a photon from the ground to a satellite orbiting more than 500 kilometers [about 300 miles] above.” That’s not just the stuff of science fiction, it’s NEWWorthy!
Below is Beyond Science’s description of the event.
To software engineers, this newly discovered — though predicted — particle sounds like an extension to the C++ programming language. In actuality,
the Xi-cc-plus-plus is a new kind of particle made up of two charm quarks. Here’s the detailed (pdf) slide presentation.
It’s a heavy particle, and one of the most important findings about the Xi so far is that it helps to confirm the Standard Model. In the long term, it might also help to refine our understanding of
Chemistry World reports that Marmite, Vegemite, and jelly are high in salt content and make good conductive materials for
edible electronics used in diagnostic tests — such as for stomach abnormalities.
Below is an example of how Vegemite can be used in a 3D printing process to create an electronic circuit.
