    The paper states that even without cookies, fingerprinting lets advertisers track your every online move. In the past, clearing cookies after each session or selecting your browser's “Do Not Track” setting could prevent third-party tracking. But the advent of browser fingerprinting makes it very difficult to prevent others from monitoring your online activities. The diagram at right ... View full abstract»

    Grand engineering challenges often require an epic level of patience. that's certainly true for quantum computing. For a good 20 years now, we've known that quantum computers could, in principle, be staggeringly powerful, taking just a few minutes to work out problems that would take an ordinary computer longer than the age of the universe to solve. But the effort to build such machines has barely... View full abstract»

    In the early decades of the 20th century, rocket science wasn't considered the brainy endeavor it is now. Far from it: Simply expressing an interest in the field was enough to provoke ridicule. Becoming a rocket scientist was enough to get you ostracized from whatever field you were in before. Frank Malina didn't care. Overcoming incredible institutional resistance and rather daunting technical an... View full abstract»
