The Very Real and Weird Quantum Effects . Science fiction has predicted all sorts of weird properties that allow mankind to master things like time travel and teleportation. In reality I am not sure about time travel ( I really hope it is not possible) but it looks teleportation might actually have some basis in the […]

Researchers Build An An On-Chip Light Microscope. Historians do not agree on who was first to invent the mircoscope but the man that awarded the first patent for a telescope is said to be Hans Lippershee and the technology is basically the same. This first device to study the very small, was first built around the […]
