Monday, June 17, 2019

Nothing lasts forever. Humans, planets, stars, galaxies, maybe even the Universe itself, everything has an expiration date. But things in the quantum realm don't always follow the rules. Now, scientists have found that quasiparticles in quantum systems could be effectively immortal.

It is called faith.

So they have found out about quasi-matter. Okay, bring it. Let's see how this ends.

Science Alert is the biggest psuedoscience clickbait site on the internet. The abstract of the article it cites doesn't mention anything remotely like the conclusions it extrapolates.

Summary:
Decay is relentless in the macroscopic world: broken objects do not fit themselves back together again. However, other laws are valid in the quantum world: new research shows that so-called quasiparticles can decay and reorganize themselves again and are thus become virtually immortal. These are good prospects for the development of durable data memories.nical University of Munich (TUM).
