"The difference between normal light and what the researchers created is actually best illustrated by the example of a lightsaber like those in the Star Wars universe." http://cnet.co/2o9bFyy

    Science takes a step toward real-life lightsabers
    Researchers from MIT and Harvard in 2013 managed to get photons, which are basically particles of light, to play nice with each other and create a new state of matter. Harnessing such a breakthrough could lead to actual quantum leaps in computing and perhaps even give us a real-world lightsaber.

Polish astronomer and champion of the heliocentric model of the solar system Nicolaus Copernicus was born on this day in 1473. Copernicus’ research, which established that the Earth and the other known planets revolve around the sun, was revolutionary when it was published in 1543 and has since become fundamental to our understanding of the universe and our place in it.

    The 2,196-square-foot converted carriage house at 2019 Chancellor Street in Rittenhouse Square includes a private patio that leads via stairwell to a two-tier private roof deck. Inside there's a capaciousness somewhat rare for the neighborhood-no surprise, though, given the building's previous purpose.

"The orangutan's prime habitat in Borneo is lowland rain forests, which have been ravaged for decades by illegal logging operations and slash-and-burn land clearing for palm oil plantations and other agricultural activities." http://nyti.ms/2oeOTpg

"For much of the past two centuries, scientists have struggled to explain why, exactly, ice is slippery — and why skates can glide atop it so well." http://bit.ly/2oeUdZN

    The surprising science of why ice is so slippery
    Winter Olympic ice sports depend on this one fact: Ice is slippery. The low friction of ice is why speedskaters can reach 35 mph, why figure skaters can twirl in dizzying circles, and why a 40-pound curling stone can glide and accomplish whatever the heck the point of curling is.
