Even the most outlandish Master of the Key predictions seem to come true, including one of the most peculiar – that computer memory can be stored in a gas – which now has powerful new scientific support.

The intriguing discovery was made by a team of physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), whose quest was originally to turn a cloud of ultracold atoms known as a Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) into a completely new kind of circuit element.

Being constantly bombarded with bad news, it’s hard to remember that we live in a world of wonders, and science promises real miracles ahead. A visitor once said to a close encounter witness, ‘we rearrange atoms.’ This would be the most powerful scientific tool ever created, literally like magic. The ability to rearrange atoms would mean that we could design entirely new materials or change one thing into another, reconstructing our world to fit our needs in ways that are now beyond imagination. But the process is not so far beyond imagination. As this video from IBM demonstrates, it is becoming possible to manipulate single atoms.read more
