A major conundrum of quantum mechanics is the question of why effects such as quantum entanglement only appear to affect structures on an extremely small scale, such as subatomic particles, but fail to manifest themselves on the large scale phenomena that we see in our everyday lives. But now, aread more

For decades, scientists researching quantum mechanics have studied the effect of quantum superposition, a state where a single particle can be in two places at the same time. Unfortunately, there has always been a problem when trying to measure the effect, since the very act of measuring a particle willread more

Quantum researchers have managed to simulate the reversal of time at the quantum scale, using IBM’s quantum computers. Although the effect is simulated, the implication of this experiment is that the arrow of time doesn’t necessarily have to flow in one direction, but can be reversed, allowing what once wasread more
