Chinese satellite shatters quantum teleportation distance record

Standard

For quantum networking, in this work, we have already achieved a two-photon entanglement distribution efficiency a trillion times more efficient than using the best telecommunication fibers,” says Jian-Wei Pan, lead researcher on the project.

World’s first all-electric autonomous container ship to set sail in 2018

Standard

While self-driving cars are regularly in the news, we haven’t heard as much noise on the autonomous shipping front, which could have equally far-reaching ramifications. Now Norwegian company Yara has teamed up with maritime technology company Kongsberg to build the world’s first all-electric and autonomous container ship, which is set to hit the high seas late in 2018.

Elon Musk: Tesla’s Solar Roofs Will Be Cheaper Than Regular Roofs & Have “Infinity Warranty”

Standard

Last night, Elon Musk announced via Twitter that orders would begin today (May 10th, 2017) for his revolutionary solar roof hardware. In another tweet, he promised that ordering would be available in most countries throughout the world. He also clarified that people could expect to see delivery begin in the United States in late 2017, and that deliveries would roll out sometime next year for overseas locations.But another announcement just came in that’s even more revolutionary: The solar roofs will have an infinity warranty.

New Research Shows That Time Travel Is Mathematically Possible

Standard

My model of a time machine uses the curved space-time to bend time into a circle for the passengers, not in a straight line,” Tippet explained. “That circle takes us back in time.” Simply put, their model assumes that time could curve around high-mass objects in the same way that physical space does in the universe.

Watch The Difference Between Drifting And Powersliding, And How To Do Each

Standard

The fundamental difference, as Alex Glassman puts it, is that drifting concerns everything that happens on the way into the corner, and powersliding is essentially everything on the way out of the corner.

The Construct launches Robot Operating System courses | Robotics & Automation News

Standard

Beginning on February 13, the one-week training course includes direct, individualised guidance from experienced tutors.The course can be undertaken online, through the web, or in Barcelona – if you’re lucky enough to live in Barcelona.The Construct also said it has now opened enrolment to its ROS in a Single Week course, aimed at starters.The company says the course is “entirely practical ROS training”, which integrates theory and practice. Participants learn by programming different simulated robots and full integrated development environment.That course, too, can be done online or in person, if you fly over to Barcelona, Spain.
