How you can change the past

January 8, 2013

newscientist_change_past

The outcomes of recent experiments in quantum physics show that “particle” and “wave” are concepts we latch on to because they seem to correspond to guises of matter in our familiar, classical world. But attempting to describe true quantum reality with these or any other black-or-white concepts is an enterprise doomed to failure.

How to deflect an incoming asteroid

October 28, 2012

asteroid deflection

Send space-launched white paint balls on pellets, says Sung Wook Paek, a graduate student in MIT’s Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics. The pellets would deflect the asteroid and the white surface (albedo) would continue to reflect sunlight — and in 20 years, this bouncing of photons off its surface could create enough of a force to push the asteroid off its course.
