Research into alternative energy resources could be on the verge of a major breakthrough that could change the world forever.
The military contracts company, Lockheed Martin, has been working on a safer version of nuclear energy known as "compact fusion." The research is being conducted by Lockheed Martin’s Advanced Development Programs (ADP), nicknamed Skunk Works by the company due to its focus on advanced or secret projects.

If the technology proves to be a viable success, then there is the potential to create portable compact fusion energy sources small enough to provide limitless power for aeroplanes, spacecraft and naval vessels. Project leader Dr Thomas McGuire said if the project vision is realised, the “true atomic age can start." read more

Quantum entanglement, which Albert Einstein called "spooky action at a distance," occurs when two atomic particles are split apart, but still INSTANTLY copy each other–no matter HOW far away from each other they are (NOTE: Subscribers can still listen to this show).

Scientists speculate that tiny atomic particles–the building blocks of the universe–come in six different flavors. But they’re so tiny that if you tasted one, would you even notice?

When it comes to the tiniest particles, big things are going on! Physicists have coaxed two separate atoms to communicate with a sort of quantum intuition that Albert Einstein called “spooky,” in a process known as quantum entanglement. Understanding how this works could give us the ability to time travel in the future, as well as do super-fast quantum computing. And two German physicists have found a way to change the speed of light, something Einstein said was impossible.

The kind of science being done by quantum physicists today is incomprehensible to the rest of us, whose science knowledge is now out-of-date. The best scientists are searching for a theory of everything: a single theory that unites all of the universe’s fundamental forces. You could even call it a quest for God.
