Science is All Greek to me! Understanding Scientific Jargon

Has that thought ever crossed your mind? That learning about science is equivalent to understanding Greek? Well, you are absolutely right, because many words used in science have either Greek or Latin origins. This can make science a daunting subject, especially for those of us who aren’t linguists. Luckily, there are some tricks we can use to understand scientific jargon better. […]

Using Quantum Processes in Our Brains to Crack Computer Encryptions

The goal of a quantum computer is to perform computations that would be too intensive and impractically long for a classical computer to compute. One such computation where it is often cited that a quantum computer will be able to do much more efficiently than standard classical computers (that’s the typical computer that is ubiquitous today) is the factorization of very large numbers. Multiplying two large numbers is easy for any computer. But calculating the factors of a very large number, on the other hand, is no easy feat. In fact, the challenge of factoring large numbers after encryption is [...]
