Unified Science in Resonance with Nature
Quantum Zeno dynamics in a superconducting qubit
In addition to potential implications and applications in quantum computing, Resonance Science Foundation researchers are taking notice in the results of quantum Zeno effects because of potential implications in understanding the finely ordered and coherent state of the biological system. Just as quantum measurements are being utilized to stabilize the fragile state of an artificial qubit, similar mechanisms may be involved in stabilizing quantum states, natural qubits, in the biological system.
Buckyballs mysteriously show up in cold space and warp starlight
Recent discoveries have shown that the chemical reactions between stars can build the constituents of biological molecules like amino acids and sugars. These substances, raining from space, may have contributed to the origin of life on Earth.
ALMA hears birth cry of a massive baby star
Thousands of stars are birthing every moment, and although we study and follow their evolution in so much detail we still do not know how they are actually formed. The standard model posits that young stellar objects (YSOs) – protostars and pre-main sequence stars – form when the denser regions of molecular clouds collapse under their own gravity.
A stream of superfluid light
Scientists have combined light with electrons to make a room-temperature superfluid. A superfluid is a kind of fifth-state of matter — a macroscopic quantum state in which the coupling of matter is so strong it no longer consists of separate individual quanta but instead merges into a single indivisible waveform.
Scientists discover plant ‘brain’ controlling seed development
In a study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), scientists from the University of Birmingham have shown a small group of cells within the plant embryo operate in a similar way to the human brain.
General Relativity Passes Test at Milky Way’s Central Black Hole
Since Einstein’s general relativity was first proposed over a hundred years ago, there have been numerous tests of proof, all of which adding support to the theory. The most significant being the correct prediction of Mercury’s perihelion orbit – which previously had no sound explanation.
How do Stars Die when they Fall into a Supermassive Black Hole?
The gravitational potential energy of any massive body decreases with distance, so only at a specific critical point will an entity feel the force of that massive body. For a black hole this critical point – defining the point of no return for anything travelling towards it – is known as an event horizon.
We May Be Looking for Alien Megastructures in the Wrong Places
Due to advances in technology, scientists have been keeping an eye out for signs of alien megastructures. One scientist hypothesizes that, if such a megastructure exists, it would be around a pulsar instead of a star.
Chiral water super-structure forms around DNA
Researchers at the University of Notre Dame have observed for the first time a chiral water superstructure templated around a biomolecule. Although many studies have demonstrated the direct interaction of water with highly important macromolecules like DNA, the latest study is a final confirmation that water forms a unique and enduring super-structure around the DNA double helix — stabilizing the molecular conformation, mediating its functionality and interaction with important information intermediaries like RNA polymerase.
