Two Time Crystals have been successfully linked for the first time

Physicists have just taken an incredible step towards quantum devices that look like something out of science fiction. For the first time, isolated groups of particles behaving like states of matter known as Time Crystals have been linked into a unique, scalable system that could be incredibly useful in quantum computing. Following the first observation …

US scientists will open crystals that may contain living organisms 830 million years old

US scientists plan to crack open a salt crystal with liquid inside that may contain still-living microorganisms dating back to 830 million years ago, in research that could provide insight into life on other planets. Salt crystals, called halite, retain liquid from when the mineral was originally formed, and scientists have observed shapes inside that …
