Quantum Teleportation Demo Sets New Accuracy Record By By KRISTIN HOUSER | Freethink
An internet powered by the weird physics of the quantum world would be virtually unhackable and literally faster than lightning.
Now, we’re one step closer to making that next-level communications network a reality, thanks to a quantum teleportation breakthrough out of the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory.
So, what the heck is quantum teleportation?
Why Do Criminals Use Cash And Not Bitcoin? By David G.W. Birch | Forbes.com
Or, What happens when law enforcement and the Mafia get quantum computers?There are people who prefer to exist in a cash economy for reasons other than a negative economic analysis of central bank monetary policies or an attachment to the iconography of banknotes. Criminals and corrupt politicians, for example. Cash works rather well for them, but can sometimes be quite inconvenient.3 min read →

Pareidolia: Seeing Shapes in the CosmosLast Updated: Jan. 5, 2021, Editor: Yvette Smith
What is pareidolia? It is the psychological phenomenon where we see recognizable shapes in clouds, rock formations, or otherwise unrelated objects or data.
When an image from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory of PSR B1509-58 – a spinning neutron star surrounded by a cloud of energetic particles about 17,000 light-years from Earth – was released in 2009, it quickly gained attention because many saw a hand-like structure in the X-ray emission.
In this image of the system, X-rays from Chandra in gold are seen along with infrared data from NASA’s Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) telescope in red, green and blue. Pareidolia may strike again as some people report seeing a shape of a face in WISE’s infrared data. What do you see?
NASA’s Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array, or NuSTAR, also took a picture of the neutron star nebula in 2014, using higher-energy X-rays than Chandra.
