WASHINGTON U.S. AND OTHER WESTERN SCIENTISTS VOICE AWE, AND EVEN ALARM, AT CHINA’S QUICKENING ADVANCES IN QUANTUM COMPUTING.

E-mail Print

WASHINGTON U.S. and other Western scientists voice awe, and even alarm, at China’s quickening advances in quantum computing. 

The concerns echo — although to a lesser degree — the shock in the West six decades ago when the Soviets launched the Sputnik satellite, sparking a space race.

In quick succession, China in recent months has utilized a quantum satellite to transmit ultra-secure data, inaugurated a 1,243-mile quantum link between Shanghai and Beijing, and announced a $10 billion quantum computing center.

“To me, what is alarming is the level of coordination of what they’ve done,” said Christopher Monroe, a physicist and pioneer in quantum communication at the University of Maryland.

Perhaps more than the accomplishments of the Chinese scientists, it is the resources that China is pouring into the research into how atoms, photons and other basic molecular matter can harness, process and transmit information.

“It doesn’t necessarily mean that their scientists are better,” said Martin Laforest, a physicist and senior manager at the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada. “It’s just that when they say, ‘We need a billion dollars to do this,’ bam, the money comes.”

The engineering hurdles that China has cleared for quantum communication means that the United States will lag in that area for years.

DARPA Laying Groundwork for In-Space Robotics

WASHINGTON — The forward-leaning technology arm of the U.S. Defense Department is betting that in just a few years, the business of sending robots to high orbit to repair and refresh satellites will be so successful that the government and the industry.

"We need to work on a set of rules," Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency Program Manager Todd Master told SpaceNews.

 

DARPA recently launched a "Consortium for Execution of Rendezvous and Servicing Operations" to start bringing the industry to the table. The agency is hoping all major industry players will join the group, including geosynchronous satellite operators and the handful of firms preparing to offer in-orbit robotic servicing of satellites.

Jet Linx Surpasses 100 Aircraft Milestone In Its Private Jet Fleet
 
 
 
Omaha-Based Company Has 14 Locations Nationwide The nationally-based fleet of aircraft operated by Jet Linx Aviation has surpassed its 100th aircraft under management.|
 
Currently, Jet Linx is the third largest aircraft management company (Part 135) in the United States, with 90 aircraft on its FAA certificate and another seven pending imminent addition to its certificate. The Jet Linx fleet of 101 aircraft also includes four that are managed solely for the owner’s use (Part 91).
 
 

Retinal cells 'go with the flow' to assess own motion through space

Retinal cells 'go with the flow' to assess own motion through space

A new study helps to explain how specialized retinal cells help stabilize vision by perceiving how their owner is moving.|
 
 Think of the way that a long flat highway seems to widen out around you from a single point on the horizon, while in the rear-view mirror everything narrows back to a single point behind you. Or think of the way that when a spaceship in a movie accelerates to its "warp" or "hyper" speed, the illusion is conveyed by the stars turning into streaks that zip radially outward off the screen. That's how a new study in Nature says specialized cells in the retina sense their owner's motion through the world -- by sensing that same radiating flow.
