Fermilab is Building a 'Holometer' to Determine Once and For All Whether Reality Is Just an Illusion | Popular Science

A Conceptual Drawing of the 'Holometer' via Symmetry
Researchers at Fermilab are building a “holometer” so they can disprove everything you thought you knew about the universe. More specifically, they are trying to either prove or disprove the somewhat mind-bending notion that the third dimension doesn’t exist at all, and that the 3-D universe we think we live in is nothing more than a hologram. To do so, they are building themost precise clock ever created.

Physics and Chemistry Nobel Prizes 2010

 

The 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Andre Geim and Russian Konstantin Novoselov for its innovative work on the two-dimensional graphene, materials useful for the development of more efficient electronic devices such as computers and solar panels.

The American Richard Heck and the Japanese Ei-ichi Negishi and Suzuki Akira researchers were honored with the Nobel Prize in chemistry, thanks to the work on more efficient ways of linking carbon atoms to complex molecules. These three scientists have developed a tool to create such complex molecules as those found in nature and which were used to develop new drugs and revolutionary materials like plastic. According to the Swedish Academy, the work of these laureates are used all over the world both for the commercial production of drugs as for the electronics industry.

O Nobel da Física 2010 foi atribuído aos russos  Andre Geim e Konstantin Novoselov pelos seus trabalhos inovadores sobre o grafeno bidimensional, material útil para o desenvolvimento de dispositivos electrónicos mais eficientes, como computadores e paineis solares.

O norte-americano Richard Heck e os japoneses Ei-ichi Negishi e Akira Suzuki foram os investigadores distinguidos com o Prémio Nobel da Química, graças ao trabalho desenvolvido em formas mais eficientes de ligar átomos de carbono para construir moléculas complexas. Estes três cientistas desenvolveram uma ferramenta que permite criar moléculas tão complexas como as que encontramos na natureza e que foram utilizadas para desenvolver novos medicamentos e materiais revolucionários como o plástico. De acordo com a academia sueca, o trabalho destes laureados é utilizado em todo o mundo "tanto para a produção comercial de medicamentos como para a indústria electrónica".
