Huge ball of gas could be cradle of life

Here’s a cloud of stinky gas that’s far too large to blame on the dog: Sagittarius B2, a molecular cloud that’s just 100 light-years from our galaxy’s center.

Scientists have known about this ability, called proprioception, for more than a century, but they […]

Scientists have just teleported quantum information over a record 7 kilometers

  Last year scientists managed to teleport photons over 100 kilometers, smashing previous records. While impressive, their method used lasers to control the entanglement of the particles involved. This allowed them to achieve successful teleportation over a vast distance, but it’s not a practical methodology for putting this technology to use. But now scientists have […]
