Labs are vying to build ever-bigger colliders against a backdrop of uncertainty about particle physics.
Oh, beautiful, sweet-smelling coffee, we love you so. But it turns out, we may not know you as well as we thought we did. Despite our undying devotion, we may have been holding our coffee cups incorrectly for pretty much our entire lives.
Physicists have proposed a method for entangling hundreds of atoms, and then entangling a dozen or so groups of these hundreds of atoms, resulting in a quantum network of thousands of entangled atoms. Since small bundles of these...
