The president’s proposed initiatives are a good start in helping to revitalize manufacturing, but they don’t go nearly far enough.
Include quantum mechanics in the calculations and faster-than-light drives become unstable
The Singularity Summit approaches this weekend in New York. But the Microsoft cofounder and a colleague say the singularity itself is a long way off.
The physicists have had their say. Now a legal study asks how a court might handle a request to halt a multibillion-dollar particle-physics experiment. The analysis makes for startling reading.
