Physicists at École Polytechnique in Palaiseau have successfully used lasers to guide lightning over a Swiss mountain. The lasers create a pathway of low density, ionized air that the lightning can follow.
Tim Ferriss recently interviewed Stephen Wolfram on his podcast. I listened to the interview on the Christmas trip back to Ireland and found it fascinating. Stephen describes the work he and his company are doing in creating a new general model for Quantum Physics, which includes his new Ruliad computational space.
Physicists from the California Institute of Technology partnered with Google Quantum have successfully created a mathematically equivalent holographic quantum wormhole that can teleport a qubit through the wormhole.
Researchers at the University of Tokyo conducted experiments that show rats nodding their heads in sync with musical beats, marking the first innate time beat synchronisation has been observed in animals.
