20 ExoWorlds are now available for naming proposals
Although people have been naming celestial objects for millennia, the IAU has the task of assigning scientifically recognised names to newly discovered celestial bodies by its member countries. The NameExoWorlds ...
On the origins of the Schrodinger equation
Entanglement between particle and wave-like states of light resembles Schrodinger's cat experiment (Update)
Most experiments that claim to show the quantum Zeno paradox fall short, study says
Physicists propose measure of macroscopicity; Schrodinger's cat scores a 57

Space treaties are a challenge to launching small satellites in orbit
Until recently the idea of launching a satellite into space was an expensive business and the preserve of governments, international space organisations and multi-million dollar companies.
Camera chip provides superfine 3-D resolution
Imagine you need to have an almost exact copy of an object. Now imagine that you can just pull your smartphone out of your pocket, take a snapshot with its integrated 3-D imager, send it to your 3-D printer, ...
Researchers describe the wavefunction of Schroedinger's cat
Schrödinger's cat highlights a long-standing dilemma in quantum mechanics: is the cat really alive and dead, or is the weirdness just in our head?
