Does Higher Energy Consumption Cause Greater Economic Output?

www.theatlantic.com
An old energy debate gets a new solar shine. Let's start with a basic correlation: Rich countries use a lot more energy than poor countries on a per capita basis. Is this an accident? What kind of causal relationship exists between wealth and energy, if any? Does a strong economy...

Scientists Claim to Have Teleported Matter over 10 Miles

www.neatorama.com
Chinese scientists claim that they have teleported material over a distance of ten miles with 89% fidelity: Teleportation over distances of a few hundred meters has previously only been accomplished with the photons traveling in fiber channels to help preserve their state. In this particular experiment, researchers maximally entangled two...
