The coherent simulation of a quantum phase transition in a programmable 2,000 qubit Ising chain

D-Wave quantum annealing processors use thousands of superconducting flux qubits on a lithographed chip, suspended in an environment near absolute zero. Credit: D-Wave. Quantum computers have the potential to outperform classical computers on several complex tasks, yet many challenges will need to be overcome before they reach their full potential. In the meantime, physicists and …

I'm transgender and started my medical transition when my child was 11 months old. I'm a better parent because of it.

I’m transgender and started my medical transition when my child was 11 months old. I’m a better parent because of it.

I knew I wanted to medically transition but was putting it off, in part because I was chestfeeding. But after complications from my IUD placement, I stopped chestfeeding and started my transition. Here’s everything I’ve learned about parenting — and myself — since then. Loading Something is loading. When I got pregnant in March 2020, …

NASA safety advisers warn ISS transition plans on “precarious trajectory” – SpaceNews

WASHINGTON — NASA’s safety advisers warn that the agency’s efforts to transition from the International Space Station to commercial space stations without a gap are on a “precarious trajectory.” At a July 21 meeting of the Aerospace Safety Advisory Panel, members said they were concerned that commercial stations whose development is being supported by NASA …
