Study provides first direct evidence explaining why we sleep

Researchers have combined physics and biology in a study that provides the first direct evidence explaining why we sleep. Viewing the brain like a biological computer whose resources are drained during waking, they demonstrated that sleep resets the br… Continue reading Study provides first direct evidence explaining why we sleep

Quantum batteries could charge by breaking our understanding of time

Causality is key to our experience of reality: dropping a glass, for example, causes it to smash, so it can’t smash before it’s dropped. But in the quantum world those rules don’t necessarily apply, and scientists have now demonstrated how that weirdne… Continue reading Quantum batteries could charge by breaking our understanding of time

Detecting Neutrinos, The Slippery Ghost Particles That Don’t Want To Interact

Neutrinos are some of the most elusive particles that are well-known to science. These tiny subatomic particles have no electric charge and an extremely small mass, making them incredibly difficult …read more Continue reading Detecting Neutrinos, The Slippery Ghost Particles That Don’t Want To Interact
