    I live less than a mile from the campus of the University of North Carolina, in Chapel Hill.

This feeling about the perils of nighttime cycling are shaped by my experiences as a driver. I often find myself ap... View full abstract»

    The U.S. Navy's most advanced laser weapon looks like a pricey amateur telescope. As it emerges from a chassis high on the USS Ponce to look out onto the daytime sky above the Persian Gulf, its operator sits in a darkened room elsewhere on the ship holding what looks like a game controller.

    Schrodinger's famous thought experiment has come to life in a new form because quantum researchers are at the cusp of a long-sought accomplishment: creating a quantum computer that can do something no traditional computer can match.
