Quantum computer and dark matter

 

Majorana fermions are very interesting -- not only because their discovery opens up a new and uncharted chapter of fundamental physics; they may also play a role in cosmology. A proposed theory assumes that the mysterious 'dark matter', which forms the greatest part of the universe, is composed of Majorana fermions. Furthermore, scientists view the particles as fundamental building blocks for the quantum computer. Such a computer is far more powerful than the best supercomputer, but only exists in theory so far. Contrary to an 'ordinary' quantum computer, a quantum computer based on Majorana fermions is exceptionally stable and barely sensitive to external influences.

Les oeufs de Pâques roumains deviennent objets de musée et de décoration

Quand Ioana Matei apprit à décorer des oeufs avec sa grand-mère pour les Pâques orthodoxes grâce à une technique complexe à base de cire et de teinture, elle n'imaginait pas qu'un jour ses créations voyageraient hors de Roumanie.

"Les gens en ont assez des objets produits à la chaîne. Ils veulent des choses faites main, avec le coeur", explique cette quinquagénaire en dessinant des motifs floraux et religieux sur des oeufs de cane, en ce week-end de Pâques pour les chrétiens orthodoxes.
