The high-stakes race to make quantum computers work

Quantum computers could eventually outstrip the computational limits of classical computers. They rely on the behavior of atomic and subatomic particles, whose quantum states are incredibly fragile and easily destroyed— which is why this technology remains largely theoretical. How would quantum computers work, and are they really possible? Chiara Decaroli investigates. [TED Ed]

Einstein’s Biggest Blunder, Explained

This video is about how Albert Einstein made a mistake when applying the Field Equations of General Relativity to cosmology (in particular, to a static, constant density universe), and solved the problem by introducing the cosmological constant, rather than allowing for a dynamic universe with a scale factor – that is, the Friedmann-Lemaitre-Robertson-Walker universe, first […]

Where Are All the Women with ADHD?

For a long time, most people saw ADHD as “a boy thing.” Today, that mindset has started to shift, but even now, studies report that males get diagnosed significantly more often than females. So, what’s going on? [SciShow Psych]

SHOCKER: Homeopathy Doesn’t Work – Here’s Why [Science Video]

Homeopathy pills and drops aren’t better than sugar pills, and thanks to the American Chemical Society (Reactions on Youtube) you can now all learn why. The use of homeopathic remedies have gone on for nearly 200 years, but so has the progress of science. And that progress has shown us that the foundations of homeopathy […]
