Liquid Water on Europa and Dolphin Whistles help solve cosmic mysteries

Water is probably trapped in the ice shell of Europa. It would be interesting to see if there is life there or to seed life there and even more awesome to develop a colony there.

I really think that interdisciplinary approaches will lead to more and more insights as disparate fields connect from acoustics to neutrinos via dolphin whistles!

Quantum Entanglement in the Macro World using diamonds

Amazing stuff. With Lockheed Martin buying the first commercial quantum computer and visible quantum teleportation of light with this entanglement of two diamonds at room temperature you can see that our capability at applying our limited understanding of the micro world is increasing at leaps and bounds…I wonder what will be the next big mindblowing thing!
