A quantum computer provides a speed-up over some classical algorithms. As well, some complex calculations or quantum simulations can be realized only using a quantum computer.
Shor's algorithm, an example of these complex calculations, try to find the prime factors of a given an integer N.
Scientists in Austria and the US have implemented for the first time this algorithm using Quantum Mechanics, and even though the number was just 15, a door is open for larger numbers and the way ahead towards Quantum Computation.
Scientist are starting to grow "dinosaur-like" parts on embryos. Find out more by clicking on the image below...
Also, lizards have been discovered in amber (more HERE).
What is the next step?
If you couldn't be able to see the rear part of the head, would you say it is a robot? We know from science fiction that robots will get closer to humans, but, it is ACTUALLY happening, it is not anymore fiction. I invite you to meet Sophia...
Do you have a favorite equation? Do you agree on the list below? There are a lot of famous equations in the history of science but, could you decide on the top 17? Have a look and choose your favorite.. or let me know which one is missing!
The sad story that Pluto wasn't anymore a planet in our Solar System made us think about a new system with only eight planets. Now, there could be a happy ending for this story. Evidence of a new ninth planet has been found thanks to some scientists at Caltech. Discover more about the giant stranger below!
