A basic sense of fairness.
Scientists make an important discovery for the future of computing.
- Researchers find a new state of matter called "topological superconductivity".
- The state can lead to important advancements in quantum computing.
Erik Verlinde has been compared to Einstein for completely rethinking the nature of gravity.
- While some question his previous papers, Verlinde is reworking his ideas as a full-fledged theory.
