Quantum Experiment Shocks Scientists

New Scientist is reporting “experimental results emerging from the lab of a Nobel laureate which, if confirmed, would shake the foundations of several fields of science. ‘If the results are correct,’ says theoretical chemist Jeff Reimers of the University of Sydney, Australia, ‘these would be the most significant experiments performed in the past 90 years, demanding re-evaluation of the whole conceptual framework of modern chemistry.'”

Luc Montagnier, who picked up the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2008 for work establishing that HIV causes AIDS, says he has evidence that suggests a kind of quantum teleportation of DNA. It imprints on water, and can still be traced even through high levels of dilution.

In effect, the water stores the information.

Naturally, a great many scientists are outraged by the suggestion – even before they’ve seen the data.

Quantum Levitation

“U.S. scientists have found a way to levitate the very smallest objects using the strange forces of quantum mechanics, and said on Wednesday they might use it to help make tiny nanotechnology machines.”

Don’t you love popular science reporting? Who would ever have guessed that nanotechnology machines were “tiny”? And what about those “strange forces” of quantum mechanics? Spooky.
