How Quantum Memory Could Change Computing

How Quantum Memory Could Change Computing
In a hot tub in 2012, physicist Seth Lloyd pitched a quantum internet application to Google’s Sergey Brin and Larry Page. He called it Quoogle: a search engine that, using mathematics based on the physics of subatomic particles, returns results without ever actually knowing the query. Such an advance would require an entirely new kind of memory, called qRAM, or quantum random access memory…

Bizarre Particles Keep Flying Out of Antarctica’s Ice, and They Might Shatter Modern Physics

Bizarre Particles Keep Flying Out of Antarctica’s Ice, and They Might Shatter Modern Physics
There’s something mysterious coming up from the frozen ground in Antarctica, and it could break physics as we know it. Physicists don’t know what it is exactly. But they do know it’s some sort of cosmic ray—a high-energy particle that’s blasted its way through space, into the Earth, and back out again. But the particles physicists know about—the collection of particles that make up what scientists call the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics—shouldn’t be able to do that. Sure, there are low-energy neutrinos that can pierce through miles upon miles of rock unaffected. But high-energy neutrinos, as well as other high-energy particles, have “large cross-sections.” That means that they’ll almost always crash into something soon after zipping into the Earth and never make it out the other side…

Quantum Weirdness May Seem to Outrun Light — Here’s Why It Can’t

Quantum Weirdness May Seem to Outrun Light — Here’s Why It Can’t
Entanglement is one of the most confusing aspects of quantum mechanics — a field of physics that isn’t exactly known to be clear-cut, sensible, common-sense and easy-to-understand. Even Albert Einstein himself was flummoxed by the surprising behavior of microscopic particles, and he firmly believed that we were fundamentally misunderstanding the universe with quantum mechanics. It turns out that Einstein was wrong, but it’s going to take a while to explain where he went wrong and what’s really going on in the quantum realm…

Tesla asks employees to beta test its full self-driving system
To get Tesla’s full self-driving capabilities, you’d have to pay between $5,000 and $10,000 for an upgrade, depending on the package you choose. The company is offering some of its employees the chance to get it for free, though — so long as they’re willing to share around 300 to 400 hours of driving feedback, that is. In an internal email obtained by Bloomberg, company chief Elon Musk is asking around 100 to 200 employees thinking of buying a Tesla to join an internal testing program for the automaker’s full-fledged autonomous system…

Mesosphere User Survey Says Hybrid Deployments Top Cloud-Only for the First Time

Mesosphere User Survey Says Hybrid Deployments Top Cloud-Only for the First Time
According to a recent user survey by Mesosphere, forecasts of the demise of on-premises data centers don’t appear to be coming true • While companies do continue to move to the cloud, many are taking the hybrid approach, keeping much of their data and workloads within the four walls of their own data centers. Compared to two years ago, on-premises-only or cloud-only deployments of the company’s software are down, while hybrid deployments are up, for the first time topping the former two delivery strategies…

Cloudflare gets into registrar business with wholesale domains and free privacy – Cloudflare Registrar will charge just what the TLDs and ICANN do.
Cloudflare, the content delivery network and website security provider, has increasingly been pushing into businesses that intersect with its core missions. Earlier this year, the company rolled out a new, free DNS service to help Internet users evade censorship (including an encrypted DNS service to evade surveillance of domain address queries). Now, the company has announced a barrage of new services to celebrate its eighth “birthday”—and one of them is an at-cost domain registrar…

New high-tech spray-on coating can make buildings, cars, and even spaceships cooler
Managing temperatures in particularly hot and sunny climates can be very difficult even today. You can use air conditioning to displace the heat from inside structures and vehicles, but it sucks up so much power and can generate pollution that ultimately makes temperature problems even worse. Now, a team of scientists from Columbia Engineering have developed what could be a much more efficient solution for keeping things cool, and you can spray it on just about anything…

‘The Planets’ At 100: A Listener’s Guide To Holst’s Solar System
Our solar system is the subject of composer Gustav Holst’s The Planets, which premiered 100 years ago on Sept. 29, 1918. 100 years ago, a symphonic blockbuster was born in London. The Planets, by Gustav Holst, premiered on this date in 1918. The seven-movement suite, depicting planets from our solar system, has been sampled, stolen and cherished by the likes of Frank Zappa, John Williams, Hans Zimmer and any number of prog-rock and metal bands…

As satellite constellations grow larger, NASA is worried about orbital debris

As satellite constellations grow larger, NASA is worried about orbital debris
The space agency argues that these probes need to be de-orbited — reliably. Multiple aerospace companies, including SpaceX and OneWeb, have vowed to someday launch thousands of satellites into low Earth orbit, but these mega-constellations could make space a more congested and dangerous place. That’s why NASA is recommending in a new report that these companies make sure their future satellites are taken out of orbit as soon as they complete their missions…

Cheap, Resourceful DIY Mini CNC Router/Mill Contraption

Cheap, Resourceful DIY Mini CNC Router/Mill Contraption
Few Hackaday Readers would disagree with the classic phrase: Necessity is the mother of invention. That statement is certainly no exaggeration when it comes to this mini 3-axis CNC Machine. The builder, [Jonathan], needed a way to prototype circuit boards that he designed. And although he admittedly doesn’t use it as much as he intended, the journey is one of invention and problem solving. [Jonathan] started from the ground up with his own design. His first machine was a moving gantry style (work piece doesn’t move) and ended up not performing to his expectations. The main problem was alignment of the axis rails. Not becoming discouraged, [Jonathan] started on version 2. This time around the work piece would move in the X and Y directions like a conventional vertical milling machine. The Porter-Cable laminate trimmer would move up and down for the Z axis. It is clear that the frame is built specifically for this project. Although not the prettiest, the frame is completely functional and satisfactorily stiff for what it needs to do…
