Chinese satellite shatters quantum teleportation distance record

Chinese scientists have smashed the quantum entanglement distance record. Transmitting information through entangled photons had previously only been possible up to about 100 km (62 mi), but using the Micius satellite launched in August, information has effectively been teleported as far as 1,200 km (746 mi). Quantum entanglement is a phenomenon so bizarre that even Einstein argued against its existence,... Read More

Tesla driver error caught on dashcam; autopilot needed help but didn’t get it
https://www.reddit.com/r/teslamotors/comments/5x15je/dash_cam_footage_of_the_potential_autopilot_crash/ It’s yet another reminder not to rely too much on driver assistance and early versions of autonomous vehicle technologies. Might as well face it, dashcams are everywhere you drive. A Tesla owner learned that recently, perhaps to his embarrassment, when dashcam footage on Reddit contradicted a post the driver made previously about how his Tesla on Autopilot hit a... Read More

Scientists receive cosmic radio signal from outer Space – but have no idea what it means
Harvard researchers previously suggested similar ‘fast radio burst’ signals are caused by alien space travel or advanced extraterrestrial technology SCIENTISTS have been left mystified by a radio signal sent from outer space. The “fast radio burst” (FRB)  came from outside our own galaxy – but experts have no idea what caused it. The Australian National Radio Astronomy Observatory telescope at Parkes, New South...
