The real field of quantum steampunk is cutting-edge science. Entropy explains why time moves forward and first emerged in thermodynamics. Any closed system of any size or scale can exhibit entropies that are meaningful. Scientists are mashing up steamy old thermodynamics and cutting-edge quantum mechanics into a new field they’re calling quantum steampunk. By combiningRead More →

In 1915, Albert Einstein predicted the gravitational pull of a black hole would be strong enough to influence the orbits of the objects circling them. Now, more than a century later, several international scientists with the GRAVITY collaboration have mapped the movement of a star that proves Einstein’s theory. The star isRead More →

Coronaviruses are part of a large family of viruses. Four types cause minor illnesses like the common cold, while other coronaviruses have triggered far more devastating impacts like SARS and MERS. Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they jump from animals to humans. In late December 2019, reports emerged of a novel coronavirus outbreak connected with pneumoniaRead More →
