Quantum Encrypted Communication Between Drones

Zhenda Xie at Nanjing University has created cheap quantum encrypted communication between drones. Above – Quantum network and physical realization with mobile drone-based nodes. (a) A practical quantum network consists of multinode structure and should provide access for users at any time. (b) If link distance is over the Rayleigh length limit, the beam aperture will be divergent and become …

Meet Assembloids, Mini Human Brains With Muscles Attached

It’s not often that a twitching, snowman-shaped blob of 3D human tissue makes someone’s day. But when Dr. Sergiu Pasca at Stanford University witnessed the tiny movement, he knew his lab had achieved something special. You see, the blob was evolved from three lab-grown chunks of human tissue: a mini-brain, mini-spinal cord, and mini-muscle. Each individual component, churned to eerie …
