Welcome to the weird world of quantum teleportation. While researchers can't teleport matter across space, through the magic of quantum entanglement, a process by which subatomic particles are linked and can communicate instantaneously even when separated at great distances, they can beam information from one place to another. So far, scientists have been able to teleport particles between distances of up to almost 90 miles (145 kilometers). … [Read more...] about 10 Real-Life Technologies That Will Turn You Into a Superhero

The researchers found that the people's performance on these tasks did not change, regardless of the time of the year. However, results did show that the neural "cost" of performing these cognitive tasks — the amount of brain activity involved — changed with the time of the year.

When you look at the Martian sunset, you actually see that "the disk of the sun is white, because light doesn't change color as it passes through the Martian atmosphere," Ehler said "Around the sun there’s a bluish glow. And further out, the sky starts looking reddish. There, you’re seeing red lights scattered at larger angles." … [Read more...] about What color is the sunset on other planets?
The birds ran on a force platform, which could sense the forces exerted by the bird's legs on the ground. A high-speed digital camera captured the birds' movements so that the researchers could examine the angles of the hip, knee and ankle and match them to the appropriate forces. … [Read more...] about Study Reveals Key to Spring in Your Step
If the ultrafast imaging technology gets fine-tuned, Raskar envisions using it to figure out how light's photons travel through the world. That might allow his team to recreate photos taken by a portable camera with compact flash to give the illusion of studio lighting. … [Read more...] about Slow-Mo Video Catches Light at 1 Trillion Frames a Second
