Two studies of vacuums suggest that the speed of light in a vacuum might fluctuate, pointing the way to a quantum mechanical explanation for why the speed of light and other so-called constants are what they are.
The Quantum Biology Conundrum: One of the biggest questions in biology is whether the processes of life are able to exploit quantum effects to improve their lot. Nobody questions whether living things are ultimately quantum at some level--we're all made of quantum objects called atoms and glued together by quantum forces. If you look closely enough at any biological process you'll see quantum processes at work...
New hybrid technology could bring 'quantum information systems': The merging of two technologies under development - plasmonics and nanophotonics - is promising the emergence of new "quantum information systems" far more powerful than today's computers.
Scientists don’t fully understand quantum entanglement—but they know that space, or physical distance, is not a factor in the “communication” between two entangled particles. If one is affected by a force or a measurement, the other also reacts in the sam
