Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) University researchers have trialled a quantum processor capable of routing quantum information from different locations in a critical breakthrough for quantum computing.
To protect ourselves from asteroids and comets that could very easily smash into Earth, researchers have to first know where those objects are in our Solar System, which is exactly what NASA has been doing with its Near-Earth Object Wide-field Survey Explorer (NEOWISE) spacecraft. Now, after two years of study, we, the public, finally get a chance to take a peek at what it found.
Using satellite data on how water moves around Earth, NASA scientists have solved two mysteries about wobbles in the planet’s rotation — one new and one more than a century old. The research may help improve our knowledge of past and future climate.

Jupiter may be the biggest planet, but it sure seems to get picked on. On March 17, amateur astronomer Gerrit Kernbauer of Mödling, Austria, a small town just south of Vienna, was filming Jupiter through his 7.8-inch (200mm) telescope. Ten days later he returned to process the videos and discovered a bright flash of light at Jupiter’s limb.
