Posted by on Wednesday, August 17, 2016,
Can we change the past? It would seem to be obvious that this is not possible - once an event happens it is part of history and cannot be altered in anyway. Even in the most speculative theories on time travel there are usually strict restrictions on what is possible. 

But today's article is not on time travel, but rather it is on the mysterious quantum effect known as a quantum eraser, and how experiments in this field have suggested that on small scales, the future really can affect the past...

Just A Blip

More disappointing news from the experimental physics community today as the teams that operate the Large Hadron Collider have formally announced that there is no new particle at 750 GeV.

Many people will remember that at the end of last year the particle physics community was buzzing over a new and unexpected result from the LHC. Their data showed something being produced at 750 GeV and decaying primarily into two photons. This did not match with any known particles, and immediately produced ...
