What quantum theory actually says about reality?
Проект: New in Science

The demonstration, which turned ideas of the great Isaac Newton on the nature of light, was incredibly simple. It "can be repeated with great ease, whenever the sun is shining," said the English physicist Thomas young in November of 1803 members of the Royal society in London, describing the experiment, which is now called the double slit experiment. And young was enthusiastic youngster. He came up with an elegant and carefully thought-out experiment, demonstrating the wave nature of light, and thereby disproved Newton's theory that light consists of corpuscles, i.e. particles.

The end of the Union: Americans have left Russia the chance
Проект: New in Science

Now the spacecraft Soyuz is the only means of transporting crews to the ISS. It is also the only Russian manned spacecraft and one of the two existing manned vehicles in the world. As you know, the Chinese are very actively developing its programme "Shenzhou": built within the ship is, in fact, a Chinese version of "Union". Americans have their own manned space vehicles do not yet have: the space Shuttle made the last run in 2011. Now, US astronauts fly on Russian ships. The Europeans and the Japanese dream to create a full ship on the basis of the space of "trucks", but whether to do it — is unknown. Such budgets like NASA space agencies can only dream of, and current experience who would not say, much less than that of overseas partners.

If we create life in a lab, how do we treat it?
Проект: New in Science

What is life? Throughout the greater part of the 20th century this question was not were of great concern to biologists. Life is a term for poets, not scientists, believed synthetic biologist Andrew Ellington in 2008, who began his career with the study of how life began. Despite the words of Ellington, related research of the origin of life and astrobiology renewed focus on the value of life. To recognize another form that life could take four billion years ago, or form that she could take on other planets, scientists need to understand what essentially makes something alive.

The next chemical element can be another form of matter
Проект: New in Science

Theoretical physicists have proposed a model in which nuclei with a mass greater than 300 can be a completely different, unfamiliar to us in the form of matter. It will not consist of protons and neutrons. According to their calculations, the next item after the heaviest known today — ohanneson — may be similar in structure to the depths of neutron stars. Potentially, such a substance may be a much more convenient energy source than nuclear or thermonuclear synthesis. A study published in the journal Physical Review Letters.

The U.S. Department of defense led the way warp engines and dark energy
Проект: New in the military

In August 2008, the U.S. defense Department has proposed dozens of scientific groups to address issues of perspectives of studying a brand new aerospace technologies, including new methods of movement, takeoff and stealth. Among the most interesting works was listed as a 34-page report prepared by two scholars under the title "Warp drive, dark energy and the manipulation of extra dimensions". The document was presented to the military on 2 April 2010 and has only recently been openly published Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of defense (DIA), reports Business Insider.

Star wars: may the carrier rocket "Angara" to become a competitor to the Falcon 9?
Проект: New in Science

Angara wins the power of rocket engines, but this advantage is offset by the difference in starting weight. And she is worth more than the ambitious project of Elon musk.

Scientists want to find out whether we are quantum computers
Проект: New in Science

There is a hypothesis, or rather a set of hypotheses, according to which our brain represents not that other, as biochemical quantum computer. At the core of these ideas lies the assumption that consciousness is inexplicable on the level of classical mechanics and can be explained only with the involvement of the postulates of quantum mechanics, the phenomena of superposition, quantum entanglement and others. Scientists from the University of California in Santa Barbara through a series of experiments I decided to find out whether our brain is a quantum computer.
