Surprise Progress with Topological Quantum Computing

Go to and get 15% off your membership!

Today we talk about quantum computing, mother trees, diamonds, microscopy with entangled photons, a supernova that we saw 5 times, a telescope made of fluid, better glasses, a new alien search initiative, and of course, the telephone will ring.

Correction to what I say at 00:44 Niels Abel was Norvegian, not Danish, sorry about that!
