If an alien landed on Earth, how would you decide if it had free will like us, or was a sophisticated automaton?
China’s new J-20 stealth fighter was placed into combat service in February.
China has upped its defence spending and is investing heavily in revolutionary technologies that could transform its military into the world’s most powerful force by the middle of the century.
Looking inside a quantum computer.
As companies make quantum computers available through their cloud services, take a look at what it means for computing to move beyond classical mechanics and into quantum physics.

Four decades later, I find myself surveying 13 billion years of cosmic history and mapping events that really did happen a long time ago in galaxies far, far away.
A measure of temperature here may be different to elsewhere.
How do we know that a measure of something in one location can be replicated precisely in another. We already have a universal measure of mass and time, but what about temperture?
Quantum key distribution technology can be implemented with single photons using an optical channel to encrypt any data transmission.
There will be a quantum leap in securing online confidentiality with key distribution technology.
Does Hemingway feel what I feel?
Take the screen on which you are reading this article. When you look at it, you see one complete scene, but you know that this scene is composed of millions of pixels that only come in three colours: red…
A team of researchers have determined a new way to distinguish quantum bits in the eventual creation of a quantum computer…
Without quantum mechanics, we would not have the transistor.
This might surprise you, but there may be literally thousands, or even tens of thousands, of devices and components surrounding you right now that work because of our understanding of quantum physics…
