The race to develop quantum technology is getting crowded

June 24, 2019

Quantum mechanics looks at how particles smaller than atoms interact. At this minuscule scale, entirely different laws of physics apply. But in the global race to develop quantum technology, the U.S. is competing in an increasingly crowded field. NewsHour Weekend’s Christopher Booker reports

The young physicist creating matter from light
June 21,2019

Growing up, Jonathan Simon loved playing Dungeons & Dragons — but not because the game involved elves, orcs or other fantastical creatures. It was all about the dice: Rolling them determined the outcome of every action. “What I thought was cool was that someone had gone through the effort of making rules to determine how a universe worked,” he says.
