New!! Scientists Supersize the Quantum Effects with Entangled Drum Duet

The discovery that truth is essentially a permanent phenomenon is one of quantum mechanics’ most annoying consequences. Quantum mechanics is not just a microscopic theory: all matter is essentially quantum—just it’s that strange quantum phenomenon is difficult to find in something more significant than a few atoms. The life of macroscopic, so-called “classical” objects is…

New!! The blue wings of butterfly now lead to less toxic paint.

Not only lepidopterists but also chemists have long been enthralled by the bright blue hues of morpho butterfly wings. The complicated nanoscale protein structures layered inside the wings pique the latter’s curiosity: their shapes behave as prisms, representing a beautiful cerulean colour. Materials scientists plan to use the properties of these structures to create things…
