More data storage? Here's how to fit 1,000 terabytes on a DVD
We live in a world where digital information is exploding. Some 90% of the world's data was generated in the past two years. The obvious question is: how can we store it all?
Primordial weirdness: Did the early universe have 1 dimension?
(PhysOrg.com) -- Did the early universe have just one spatial dimension? That's the mind-boggling concept at the heart of a theory that University at Buffalo physicist Dejan Stojkovic and colleagues proposed in 2010.

Periodic table of shapes to give a new dimension to maths (w/ Video)
(PhysOrg.com) -- Mathematicians are creating their own version of the periodic table that will provide a vast directory of all the possible shapes in the universe across three, four and five dimensions, linking ...
Metamaterials may advance with new femtosecond laser technique
Researchers in applied physics have cleared an important hurdle in the development of advanced materials, called metamaterials, that bend light in unusual ways.
Measuring quantum dimensions
(Phys.org) -- A new study from the ICFO (Institute of Photonic Sciences) in Barcelona and the University of Bristol has demonstrated how the dimension of an unknown quantum system can be assessed from measurement data alone. ...
Equivalence principle in space test
Since Galileo Galilei and Newton, the assumption is valid that inert and heavy mass are equivalent. This is, however, questioned by new physical theories such as the String theory. Now, the equivalence principle ...
Researchers show stem cell fate depends on 'grip'
The field of regenerative medicine holds great promise, propelled by greater understanding of how stem cells differentiate themselves into many of the body's different cell types. But clinical applications ...
