Engineers resolve single photons 70x faster than other techniques

Light is made of quantum particle photons, which have long been used to transmit and process information in today’s world. In the future also, it will play a crucial role in information processing in the future generation of quantum devices. But techniques to control the spectro-temporal properties of quantum states of light at ultrafast time

Fetal Personhood Laws Are a New Frontier in the Battle Over Reproductive Rights

In the early 1970s, when lawyers representing the state of Texas argued Roe v. Wade before the U.S. Supreme Court, they argued that a fetus is a person. Because a fetus is a person, they told the Justices, a fetus is entitled to all the protections guaranteed under the Fourteenth Amendment including a right to

Study deepens mystery behind Mars’ dry climate

On Earth, many forces have combined to keep the conditions remarkably stable for millions of years. But other planets may not be so lucky. One of the scientists’ many questions about other planets is exactly how lucky we are—that is, how often this confluence exists in the universe. Studying what happened to other planets, such
