Best of Last Week – The sound of an atom captured, solid light created and the banality of evil
(Phys.org) —It was an interesting week for physics research, as a team at MIT began taking a second look at pilot-wave theory—they're wondering if, when looked at a certain way , fluid mechanics might suggest an alternative to quantum orthodoxy—they're taking a new ...

Researcher shows that black holes do not exist
Black holes have long captured the public imagination and been the subject of popular culture, from Star Trek to Hollywood. They are the ultimate unknown – the blackest and most dense objects in the universe ...
Quantum sensor's advantages survive entanglement breakdown
The extraordinary promise of quantum information processing—solving problems that classical computers can't, perfectly secure communication—depends on a phenomenon called "entanglement," in which the ...
