Chiara Mingarelli, a gravitational-wave astrophysicist at the Flatiron Institute, joins other scientists in a post mortem about the iconic telescope’s tragic end.
During a virtual 'Gaia Sprint' hackathon last week, astronomers — including Adrian Price-Whelan of the Flatiron Institute's Center for Computational Astrophysics — pored through new data, hoping to unlock some of our galaxy’s most intriguing secrets.
Noise from temperature fluctuations may limit the performance of small optical cavities for quantum computing applications.
Researchers at Princeton University, the Simons Foundation and the University of California-San Francisco developed a way to target tumors with the same kind of logic that drives computers, promising cancer treatments that are both safer and more broadly effective.
Researchers built super-sensitive chambers inside of mountains to study our host star.
Classical computers can efficiently simulate the behavior of quantum computers if the quantum computer is imperfect enough.
It might be possible, physicists say, but not anytime soon. And there’s no guarantee that we humans will understand the result.
