A Quantum Leap Measuring Microscopic Gravity

“In an experiment involving sophisticated superconducting apparatus cooled to within a whisker of absolute zero, and brass weights stuck to an electrical bicycle wheel, physicists recorded a minuscule gravitational tug of 30 quintillionths of a newton on a particle less than a millimetre wide.

The demonstration paves the way for future work in which researchers aim to measure the gravity generated by ever smaller particles to understand how the unusual force behaves in the subatomic world where quantum rules dominate.”

“Digital Twin” of Earth Could Make Super Fast Weather Predictions

“Scientists have created a ‘digital twin’ of our planet that can be used to predict weather far faster than traditional services.

The technology could help prevent some of the catastrophic impacts of disasters such as typhoons and flooding. The intensive data-crunching system could also give us a more detailed view of the future effects of climate change and reveal clues about how to mitigate it.”

The Man Leading the Masters with Irons Made by a 3D Printer

“Bryson DeChambeau not only finds himself in contention to win his first Masters this weekend, standing at 6-under-par and tied for the 36-hole lead, he’s doing it with a new set of irons he put into his bag this week.

A set of irons that are made by 3D printing and weren’t approved by the USGA until Tuesday.”
