Scientists May Have Figured Out How To Turn Light Into Matter

Back in 1934, a team of physicists came up with an idea for how one might create matter from light. Put simply, just slam two photons into each other to get an electron and a positron, a.k.a. matter. And now, some 80 years later, a team of physicists have a…

Photons Can Communicate From Beyond The Grave

Everyone knows that quantum physics is weird — but it just got weirder. A team of scientists from the University of Jerusalem have used quantum entanglement to allow two photons that never existed at the same time to communicate with each other.
