You know, without that artist's rendering, I wouldn't have been able to picture what two hydrogen atoms getting closer together looks like.  Super helpful.

Natural Diamond RAM?

That'll be cheap.

It is found in all atoms and acts as the primary carrier of electricity in solids, according to a report in the Austrian Tribune.


We would still be in the dark ages without the Austrian Tribune.

Well, with all honestly, it's as close to quantum computers as inventing the way to ignite raw oil is close to first automobile.

What idiot artist rendered that? It's clearly the wrong shade of green.

It's become a zombie. We're still trying to figure out what to make of that.

"To manipulate a single electron at the quantum level the researchers used a laser light in ultra-fast pulses which in turn managed the quantum state of an electron inside a nanosecond defect, which is naturally found in diamonds."

Sure, but how many parsecs does it take them to make the Kessel run?

When I want news of the latest developments in physics, I always turn to the Sky Vallley Chronicle in rural Washington for a synopsis of the Austrian Tribune's coverage of events in Chicago.

I am a cat and why am I in this box?
 
2014-08-18 10:45:41 AM  
You know, eventually you have to open the box and feed the cat. Also, if there are no airholes, that's another result.

At some point, the cat won't be alive and dead at the same time, it will just be two different kinds of dead.

This is the kind of quality science reporting I have grown to expect from the Sky Valley Chronicle.  I hope you now know where to go for your science news.

This Nitrogen Vacancy Centers stuff is making me recall how annoyed I was at school, when they started to explain how semiconductor physics worked with 'holes' being carriers.

Nostalgia.

I submitted this specific article because it was the first I found that wouldn't show up as being written by "Some Guy." There were a couple of others that were written better, but damnit if Fark doesn't have a picture for their website yet.

Great clown Pagliacci's pick-me-up: It is found in all atoms and acts as the primary carrier of electricity in solids, according to a report in the Austrian Tribune.

Somewhere at Sky Valley Chronicle is a writer who remembered the teacher saying "Wikipedia is not a primary source", and concluded that "a primary source is anything that's not Wikipedia".

Diamonds are more common than people think, it's just everyone wants clear for jewelry. That's why every summer the diamond store at the mall goes "This year yellow diamonds are the bext big thing!"
