A Jumble of Science Stuff

July 9th, 2004 Posted in Techie

A few cool science items:

  • Scientists at Caltech have made another step in reading monkey brain signals and turning them into corresponding movement. This has obvious implications for prosthetics; score another one for the reductionists.
  • Also, another advancement has been made in the study of quantum teleportation using entangled pairs. This one is a brain frier, and has interesting applications in the field of quantum cryptography. On a philosophical note, if I deconstruct your body on an atomic level and reconstruct you somewhere else using different atoms, are you the same person? What’s really nuts is that this type of question may become non-hypothetical during my own lifetime.
  • Lastly, keep an eye on this daily simulated view of earth from Cassini. What blows me away is how small the sun is when you’re orbiting Saturn. Craziness.
