⚠️QUANTUM COMPUTER - POST 3⚠️ ——————————————————— In the last post we viewed two fundamental properties of #qubits, the fundamental units of #quantumcomputers 💻. . In order to have a qubit, we need a two-state quantum system. This means that we need a physical system which can be in any superposition of two states (such as 0 and 1). . Many physical systems accomplish this condition ✅, such as electrons 💫and atomic nucleus 🔘(which can have ⬇️ or ⬆️ spin) or photons (having ↔️ or ↕️ polarization). . These two-state quantum systems are common in nature 🌎 and have already been used to produce the first prototypes of quantum computers 🖥. However, with the “fragility” of the quantum world (a.k.a. Quantum Decoherence), qubits must be highly “protected” ☔️ to maintain superposition and entanglement while allowing us to access the information in them. . When a qubit is not completely isolated from the environment, the quantum information is lost into the surroundings over time ⏳🔋. Thus, to build a long-lasting qubit, changes in temperature, vibrations, magnetic fields, etc., must be minimized 📉 by using complex “shells” 🛡. Currently, the world record of a qubit being in superposition is of 39 minutes⏱, what is enough to calculate >2M operations😱! Theoretically, with a 300 qubits system in superposition, one could map all the information of the universe from the Big Bang🌌. However, increasing the number of qubits📈 also fastens the loss of coherence📉🤪. . Currently, big tech companies are struggling with the development of stable and useful quantum computers🤓. In numbers, #ibm launched a 50-qubit working quantum computer (pic 1), while recently #google announced their 72-qubit processor named #bristlecone (pic 2) and #dwave one quantum computer with 2000 qubits (pic 3)! . Only time will tell us how do this computers evolve🧐, and how will science advance with such a computational power 💥🤩! ———————————————————— If you liked this series on QC, please leave us a comment and let’s thank @joebbacon (♥️💏) for producing or reviewing this content 😊

⚠️QUANTUM COMPUTER - POST 2⚠️ ———————————————————— In the last post we talked about transistors, the fundamental components of logic gates 🚪! . Logic gates work with units called "bits", which can take two unique values, 0️⃣ and 1️⃣. The main idea 💡 behind Quantum Computing is to use "qubits" or quantum bits instead of classical bits (photo 1). . Like bits, qubits can take the values 0️⃣ and 1️⃣, but they can also be in a combination of both😦, for example 35% 0️⃣ and 65% 1️⃣, what is known as the superposition of quantum states. . This property is extremely powerful 👊🏽, it allows us to have a huge amount of combinations of 0s and 1s simultaneously (see photo 2)! Well, as long as they're not observed‼️ When they are measured, those quantum states collapse into ordinaries 0s and 1s, which we can read and manipulate as usual 🤗. . All of this wouldn't be much useful if it wasn't for another property of quantum states: the entanglement 🖇. When we have two quantum states entangled 🖇we can instantaneously determine properties of one just by measuring the other📏🔍. . These two properties of qubits, #superposition and #entanglement, can be a key factor to carry out certain computational tasks 💻 that would never be accomplished using classical computers, no matter how powerful we make them‼️ . The ability to carry out these tasks wouldn't only suppose a colossal advance for #physics 👨🏻‍🔬 and #computerscience 👩🏼‍💻, it could also revolutionize fields like #chemistry ⚗️and #molecularbiology 🔬due to some simulations that could be performed 👾. ———————————————————— In the next post, we will see how can we build these quantum bits🏗, what are the difficulties at the time of taking an actual quantum computer to the real world 🌎 and what is the current state of their development 🛠.

[Fire] In traditional Chinese medicine, the heart controls the rest of body (yet we know it should be our cerebrum). Chinese people loves to drink herbal tea when they are "上火" / “熱氣” . . “yeet hay” is a Chinese concept for trapping heat or irritable element inside your body e.g. constipation, flushed cheeks, sore throat. . Why people experience "yeet hay"? Some believe that there is pH imbalance in blood. If we consume too much acid-causing food e.g. meat, dairy products, these food would turn into acid eventually. Breaking down these food will produce hydrogen ions to make our blood more acidic. This not only interfere homeostasis but also put a lot of pressure on internal organs :( . . #biology #human #chinesemedicine #herb #fire #yeethay #scifacts #learning #chinese #acid #food #homeostasis #life #sketch #sketchbook #cartoon #hkig

So yeah! We discovered an underground lake on Mars! That's a huge step for our research on the red planet! The water is under the freezing point but it manages to stay liquid due to the presence of magnesium, calsium and sodium! Researchers are eagle to find contemporary water because such a discovery would be the key to the mystery whether life existed or exists on Mars! #science #sci #sciencefacts #scifacts #galaxy #mars #astronomy #astronomyfacts #discovery #physics #aliens #wow #space

The skeleton is made up of bones, cartilage, joints, and ligaments. Humans are born with approximately 300-350 bones. However, as a person grows, some bones fuse together over time to form a single bone. By the time a person reaches adulthood (s)he will have 206 bones. The skeleton gives the body structure and movement. But bones do more: All of them produce blood cells, store minerals, and release hormones that are needed for bodily functions. . . . #skeleton #bones #scifacts #human #anatomy #growingup #cartilage #ligaments #newborn #scienceisfun #think #delvedeep #think #lovescience #hormones #explore #discover #life #skeletal #study #facts #think #bloodcells #student #scienceclass #science #scientific #knowmore #learning #bonemarrow

Human eye and camera lenses both focus an inverted image onto a light-sensitive surface. A camera focuses this image onto film or a sensor chip. Your eyes focus it on the retina on the inside of your eyeball. But what does resolution mean for the human eye? Well, in order to create a screen, so to speak, with a picture so sharp and clear that the individual pixels can't be distinguished, you would have to place 576 million pixels into an area that is the size of your field of view. You only see high resolution in a very small area in the center of your vision – the fovea. Hence, although the eye does indeed have higher resolution than a digital camera, it's more comparable to a detective, collecting clues from your surrounding environment. It then takes those clues back to the brain. The brain, in turn, puts the pieces together to make a complete picture. . . . #eye #sight #camera #megapixel #lens #science #human #scifacts #think #humanmemory #mind #iphone #samsunggalaxy #canon #nikon #apple #samsung #olympus #scientific #biology #indepth #details #facts #fovea #opticnerve retina #visual #pixels #stem #stemed #scienceisfun

Over 40% of your body is muscle, and your body has 3 types of it: visceral (smooth) muscle, cardiac muscle, and skeletal muscle. Visceral muscle is found inside of organs like the stomach and lungs, and contract to move substances through the organ. Cardiac muscle is found in the heart and is responsible for pumping blood throughout your body. Skeletal muscle is the only voluntary muscle tissue in your body —it’s controlled consciously. Every physical action that you consciously perform – speaking, walking, etc. – requires the use of skeletal muscle. Learning about the muscular system – which you’ll enjoy with the use of this model – will give you a deep understanding of what is behind the movement of the human body.

A magnified view of the stem of an elodea plant – commonly known as waterweed. It provides great cover for fish and aquatic insects, and is a food source for different kinds of pond wildlife. However, the downside of it is that it can grow excessively, which can decrease dissolved oxygen levels during the summer, which kills fish. To control its growth, its nutrient sources can be reduced or redirected from the pond. Among a few means of accomplishing this are reducing fertilizer applications near the pond and redirecting nutrient-rich runoff away from it. . . #aquaticlife #underwater #aquatic #plant #pond #science #nature #lookaroundyou #explore #learning #scifacts #stem #microscope #detail #lookclosely #microscopy #miagnify #stemeducation #scientific #habitat #plantgrowth #scienceisfun #enviornment #earth #water #earth #study #knowledge #botany #lovescience

This is a magnified view of jasminum nudifllorum – a plant best known as winter jasmine. It’s one of the earliest flowering plants to bloom, often doing so in January. If you’re someone who dislikes winter, you’ll appreciate this plant for its pretty, cheery, buttery blooms that help allay the winter blues. Neither sun nor shade is a problem for the winter jasmine – it can tolerate both. However, it will blossom best in the sun. Once it becomes established, it will be very drought-tolerant. The winter jasmine illustrates how every living thing is unique in its own way! . . . #winterjasmine #plants #botany #stem #botanical #sunshine #nature #flower #plant #science #learn #unique #learningfromnature #scienceisfun #lookaround #environment #beautyinnature #scientific #scifacts #science #knowledge #details #digdeep #stemed #study #keeplearning #learningisfun #lovescicence #sun #shade

An achromatic lens typically consists of two optical components cemented together, usually a positive, low-index (crown) element and a negative, high-index (flint) element. (The microscope objective you see here has such a lens.) An apochromatic lens is a compound lens that consist of three lens elements. It gives better correction of aberration and significantly reduces dispersion versus monochromatic and achromatic lenses. When it comes to microscopes, the apochromatic microscope objective lens is typically higher in numerical aperture (NA) than those of corresponding magnification that are in achromatic form. Since apochromat objective lenses are corrected for three color wavelengths rather than two, they produce a more vivid image that is typically better for intricate laboratory work and advanced photomicrography. . . . #lens #scifacts #microscopy #science #microscope #learn #study #education #scilife #laboratory #apochromatic #optics #sight #vision #digdeep #insight #stem #medicine #university #college #analysis #student #teacher #lovescience #teach #knowledge #details #learnmore #knowledgeboost #aperture

Voltage is the electromotive force or the potential difference in charge between two points in an electrical field. As voltage increases, electrical current through a conducting or semiconducting medium for a given resistance to the flow, increases (electrical current being the quantity of charge carriers that pass a fixed point, per time unit).

Here’s a close-up view of a bee leg. Bees have three pairs of legs. Each leg has claws for gripping, and well as sticky pads that help the bee land on smooth surfaces. Interestingly, bees can taste with their legs…meaning that they exercise their sense of taste by means of taste receptors located on the tips of their legs (they also have these receptors on their antennas as well). The bee is just one of many creatures in nature we can learn a lot from! 🐝 . . . #bee #busybees #pollen #microscopy #learning #stem #insect #scientific #nature #honey #honeycomb #insight #keeplearning #theworldaroundus #lookaroundyou #stemeducation #scienceisfun #microscope #details #zoomin #detailed #scifacts #study #lovescience #taste #antennae #knowledge #think #science #lookdeep

Some of the jobs of the urinary system are eliminating waste from the body, regulating blood volume, and maintaining the balance of water in the body. A few things that a person can do to keep his/her urinary system healthy are (1), staying hydrated (water helps to eliminate waste from the body), (2) eating healthy (foods that are high in fat can put unnecessary stress on the kidneys), and (3), answering nature’s call right away (withholding urination can place needless pressure on your bladder, which can lead to infection). Learning more about urinary system – which can be done in-depth using this model – will equip people with knowledge that will help them make wise decisions for keeping it healthy.

This does not mean that they can never die - they can still die due to predators, disease, or a catastrophic change in the environment, such as an erupting volcano. If a plant or animal is biologically immortal, it means that unlike humans, they rarely die simply because they get old. An example is the Turritopsis nutricula jellyfish. When it encounters unpleasant environmental conditions, the adult Turritopsis simply sinks to the ocean floor and reverts to its juvenile polyp phase, which makes it look like a tiny clump of cells. The jellyfish can repeat this process of regression and re-growth endlessly. To date, there haven’t been any reported observations of its death due to aging. . . . #life #biology #lookaroundyou #science #scifacts #scientific #plants #animals #knowledge #laboratory #depth #details #lovescience #stem #student #stemeducation #scienceclass #environment #learn #jellyfish #growth #scienceisfun #nature #theearth #ocean #keeplearning #education #facts #teach #study

The amplified vibrations from your eardrum go to the cochlea, which is in your inner ear. The latter conducts sound via fluid. It's in the inner ear – which is about the size of a pencil eraser – that sounds are translated into nerve impulses, which the brain can recognize and understand as distinct sounds. The brain analyse sounds very thoroughly – so much so that you can, for example, identify the sound of a particular instrument in an entire orchestra. This analysis also enables you to single out a specific voice in a noisy room. . . . #ear #scifacts #science #hear #lovescience #depth #sound #knowledge #eardrum #innerear #nerveimpulse #brain #analysis #stem #nurse #stemed #biology #cochlea #learning #think #education #scienceisfun #human #study #teach #insight #student #teacher #nursing #details

Penicillium is a type of fungus that can be bluish, greenish, or yellowish in color. It can grow in or on anything, really, anything – on mattresses, on fruit, and even in wall insulation. Ironically, penicillin – an antibiotic discovered in 1928 that fights infectious diseases – is made from penicillium. Nonetheless, penicillium itself produces toxins that are harmful to one’s health – it can trigger allergic reactions, can damage the kidney, and could even cause cancer. Therefore, watch out for that bluish, greenish, or yellowish mold to protect the health of yourself and your family! . . . #health #healthcare #homecare #watchout #science #insight #food #medical #microscopic #scientific #depth #scifacts #stem #knowledge #detail #microscopy #medicine #bealert #meded #helpful #think #education #bacteria #learn #stemeducation #biology #research #university #college #keeplearning

Stratified squamous epithelia are tissues that are formed from multiple layers of cells resting on a basement membrane (which provides structural and metabolic support), with the superficial layer(s) consisting of squamous cells. They can be found in surfaces of the body that undergo constant wearing forces or on parts of the body that undergo frequent friction, such as the mouth, skin, and cornea. Stratified squamous epithelia are found in almost every organ system where the body comes into close contact with the outside environment – from the skin to the respiratory and digestive systems.

Despite his scientific achievements, he had many enemies who failed to see how his many discoveries could possibly improve medical practice. Nevertheless, Marpighi persevered. In fact, his studies provided the anatomical basis for further understanding of human physiology. . . . #redbloodcell #blood #circulation #science #circulatorysystem #sciencehistory #scifacts #learning #tastebuds #tongue #microscopy #anatomy #scientific #anatomical #learn #science #medical #stem #meded #discover #stemeducation #classroom #knowledge #sweettaste #cells #depth #life #biology #education #lovescience

The stem of Zea mays…better known as corn. This close-up view of it shows it in rich detail. The vascular bundles of the stem (1), is seen very clearly. They are longitudinal strands of vascular tissue in the stems and help to transport water, nutrients, and other life-sustaining elements. The ground tissues (2) are made up three tissues: parenchyma, collenchyma, and sclerenchyma. Together, they make up most of the zea mays’ body. There’s plenty of interesting complexities in the world…even in your popcorn. 🍿😉 . . . #cornonthecob #popcorn #corn #munch #food #scifacts #microscope #microscopy #scilife #scifacts #eat #scientific #stem #stemeducation #learn #complex #water #nutrients #vascular #nutrients #life #nature #learn #knowledge #laboratory #scientist #student #teacher #learning #know #classroom

Pregnancy is a fascinating wonder of life! Just 18 days after conception, the baby’s heart starts beating. 3 weeks after conception, the brain is developed. Additionally, if identical twins are expected, they’ll begin bonding with each other in the womb as early as when they’re 14 weeks old! This model will help you understand the amazing activity that goes on during fetal development.

That’s right. Additionally, a teaspoon of water (4.9 ml) contains 200 sextillion (that’s 2 followed by 23 zeroes) water molecules, but, as we know, each water molecule is made up of 3 atoms: 2 hydrogen atoms and an oxygen one. Furthermore, if you were to lay down each water molecule from a teaspoon end-to-end, you’d have a length of 31,068,559,611.867 miles (50 billion km). That’s 10X the width of our solar system! . . . #water #atom #ocean #scifacts #depth #knowledge #lovescience #molecule #length #mindboggling #hydrogen #oxygen #scientific #scilife #university #theworld #think #complex #stem #stemeducation #learn #details #research #interestingfact #information #college #thinkdeep #ilovelearning #student #teacher

The average person will walk about 115,000 miles (185,074.56 km) over a lifetime. To put than in perspective, that would be enough for you to go around the earth approximately more than 4 times! Also, your ankles act as shock absorbers to help keep you stable through all those steps. And during an average day of walking, the forces on your feet can amount to hundreds of tonnes – equivalent, on average, to a fully loaded cement truck. Your feet and ankles are tough – this model will show the ligaments behind that, and more.

The elbow consists of 3 bones: the humerus, ulna, and radius. If it wasn’t for these bones, your arms wouldn’t be able to hinge. You wouldn’t be able to do countless things with your arms – from lifting a bag to rotating your arm. The elbow is one of the most active parts of the body – and this model of it will show the different parts of it that make it work.

This is an up-close look at spirogyra, a type of algae that’s found in freshwater environments worldwide. Named after the spirally arranged chloroplasts found in its cells, spirogyra can form masses that float near the surface of streams and ponds. These masses are kept afloat by oxygen that is produced by photosynthesis. All types of algae – including spirogyra – produce about 30-50% of the net global oxygen available to humans and animals! So next time you see algae in water, don’t be grossed out. Be thankful. ;) . . . #scifacts #stem #biology #global #microscope #water #cells #science #stemeducation #oxygen #nature #knowledge #keeplearning #student #chloroplast #microscopy #insight #details #think #study #enviornment #lookaround #learn #earth #pond #learning #cytoplasm #teacher #lookdeep #scientific

Here’s a close-up look at the human spinal cord. It’s connected directly to the brain, making it part of the central nervous system. It’s the path of communication between the body and the brain. It’s also responsible for involuntary and voluntary movement of the muscles. The spinal cord does a lot of work for the body – all while being about 0.39” – 0.59” (1 cm – 1.5 cm) in diameter! . . . #anatomical #spine #spinalcord #facts #knowledge #learning #human #nervoussystem #scifacts #microscopy #microscope #bones #anatomy #nurse #stem #microscopy #lookcloser #lovescience #stemeducation #scientific #medical #teacher #student #learn #science #intrigue #university #college #nursing #scilife

The heart is a hard-working organ! It beats about 115,000 times a day, and pumps about 1.2 liquid gallons (4,542.5 ml) of blood per hour! And over a lifetime, it will likely beat over 2-3 billion+ times! Tireless, indeed. This 3-part model -- 5X bigger than the human heart -- will help you learn more about this amazing organ.

Good question. Visible light is made up of electromagnetic radiation with different wavelengths that can be perceived by the human eye. These wavelengths correspond to the different colors we see. Chlorophyll – the pigment found in the leaves – absorbs red and blue wavelengths to use as energy, but doesn’t absorb green ones. Instead, it reflects the latter off the leaves, and thus our eyes see them as being green. . . . #stem #educate #leaf #ilovelearning #scientific #lovescience #interestingfacts #scifacts #nature #theworld #sight #education #see #science #friday #stemeducation #school #details #educate #insight #wondersoftheworld #learn #depth #knowledge #keeplearning #environment #information #facts #scilife #student

Mercury is the only metal that is liquid at standard room temperature and pressure. That's because the electrons that spin around the nucleus of a mercury atom have just weak links or bonds with other mercury atoms at room temperature, keeping the metal in a liquid state. . . . #mercury #students #science #lovescience #scientific #metals #atom #chemistry #scifacts #facts #education #interestingfacts #learning #stem #information #wow #planet #amazing #university #college #teacher #fun #research #educate #stemeducation #chem #chemical #information #ilovelearning #study

The genetic code in each human cell (human genome) has 23 DNA molecules called chromosomes, each of them containing about 500,000-2.5 million nucleotide pairs. DNA molecules of this size have an average length of about 5 cm. In the human body, there are 37 trillion cells, so if we uncoil all of the DNA encased in each cell and then connect the molecules end-to-end, we would have a total length of 2×1014 meters — enough for 17 trips around the dwarf planet Pluto. The distance of a round trip between the sun and Pluto is 1.2×1013 meters. . . . #dna #space #deoxyribose #facts #nucleic #phosphate #scifacts #life #gene #code #molecular #compound #chemical #biology #bio #chemistry #students #education #learning #information #wow #interestingfacts #insta #amazing #nasa #planet #human #stem #math #physiology
