Disappointing news on the science wires today, as new research indicates that a possible means of subverting the laws of physics to allow interstellar travel apparently doesn't work.
for most of history people have had two periods of sleep each night, with the time in between being perhaps the most calm and relaxing part of their lives. Then came the lightbulb. This unexpected "two sleep" phenomenon was uncovered by historian Roger Ekirch when he began to do research for a history of the night
A group of European researchers has proposed the largest quantum network yet: Between Earth and the International Space Station. Such a network would see entangled photons transmitted over a distance of 250 miles — two or three times greater than previous quantum communication experiments. Not only will this be the first quantum experiment in space, but it will allow the scientists to see if entanglement really is instantaneous over long distances, and whether it’s affected by gravity.
Researchers at HP Labs have built a small, multi-angle, glasses-free 3D display that could allow for smartphones, tablets, and watches to produce Princess Leia-like holograms. The current prototype devices can produce full-parallax 3D images and videos that are viewable from up to a meter, within a 90-degree arc — and, like the Star Wars hologram, the 3D image or video varies as you move your head up and down, or around the display.
Scientists at Stanford University have improved the efficiency of a revolutionary solar cell by around 100 times. Unlike standard photovoltaic cells, which only capture light energy, Stanford’s new device captures both light and heat, potentially boosting solar cell efficiency towards 60% — way beyond the 30-40% limit of traditional silicon photovoltaic solar cells.

MIT researchers have created a camera which can take images so fast - one trillion of them in just a second - that it can capture light as it travels across objects.
Nothing can go faster than the speed of light, which thanks to the work of scientific legends such as Leon Foucault and Einstein, we know to be 299,792,458 metres per second in a vacuum.But developers at MIT have managed to catch up, with their camera taking so many images that, when you play them in sequence at super-low-speed, you can see a light beam as it travels from A to B.

Great breakdown/simplification of the double slit experiment. Something to watch if you want your mind blown.
Saw these guys in concert back in the bad old 90's. It was fucking badass.....a treat for the freaks....
While the source of the explosion remains a mystery, it comes just before the 15th anniversary of one of the most-famous UFO sightings in recent history. On March 13, 1997, a cluster of glowing orbs moving in a V-shaped formation was spotted in the skies above Phoenix.
Last week, physicists from MIT published a paper in Physical Review Letters entitled "Thermoelectrically Pumped Light-Emitting Diodes Operating above Unity Efficiency." My guess is that most physicists cringe a little bit when they see the phrase "above unity," because that's another way of saying either "perpetual motion machine" or "free energy," both of which are likely to get you branded as either an eccentric (if you're lucky) or a total crackpot (if you're not).
