Researchers at NIST have managed to teleport quantum information over 100 kilometers of optical fiber, which is four times farther than the previous record.
Scientists have discovered that supermassive black hole pairs are much more rare than originally presumed, which makes the task of measuring ripples in space-time even more difficult.
Invisibility cloaks have been around for quite some time. But imagine one that's an ultra-thin, invisibility "skin" cloak that can conform to the shape of an object and conceal it from detection with visible light.
