On Wednesday, 4 July 2012, in Geneva, Switzerland, scientists working at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) announced that they have found the elusive Higgs boson particles, sometimes referred to as the God particle.
Will the first quantum twin atoms experience quantum entanglement? In the mysterious world of quantum physics, quantum particles, even at a distance, share similar physical properties. Physicists have created the world's first quantum twin atoms.
Physics of the impossible? Or physics of the future? One physicist believes the world's largest atom smasher, the Large Hadron Collider, could double as a time machine that could allow people to go back in time.
Quantum physics can bring good news to all those who want to conduct totally secure communications over IT networks - particularly financial institutions. Strings of photons are affected when they are observed and this fact can be used in IT encryption.
Quantum physics has been added to Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity to produce a model of the creation of the universe. The new theory is called Loop Quantum Gravity. It's about as simple as it sounds.
