For The First Time, Physicists Have Controlled The Interaction of Time Crystals
The existence of time crystals - a particularly fascinating state of matter - was only confirmed a few short years ago, but physicists have already made a pretty major breakthrough: they have induced and observed an interaction between two time crystals.

Elon Musk's Starship rocket mission
Elon Musk urged SpaceX employees to accelerate progress on its next-generation Starship rocket "dramatically and immediately," writing Saturday in a company-wide email seen by CNBC. A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying the company's Crew Dragon spacecraft is launched on the Demo-2 mission with NASA astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley onboard.
Groundbreaking experiment cools particle to the quantum limit
An experiment designed by Markus Aspelmeyer and his team of researchers at the University of Vienna has successfully cooled a nanoparticle to the quantum cooling limit, reaching the particle's ground state at a minimum temperature of twelve millionths of a Kelvin, through the precise use of an array of lasers to levitate the particle in a specially constructed cavity.

New quantum computation method capable of solving an enormous amount of problems
A new improvement to quantum computation methods has expanded the range of solutions that can be verified by quantum computers to include an enormous number of new problems, including those that can never be verified by classical computers. While the study is still in peer review, researchers agree with the robustness of its methodology and expect it to survive more thorough testing.

Researchers use color-changing fibers to test knot strength
In a groundbreaking study, researchers led by MIT's Vishal Patil have utilized fibers that change colors when placed under varying amounts of strain to test the strength and durability of various kinds of knots. While knots have been used by humans for millennia, little is known about the mathematical interactions between the various levels of strain utilized in different knots, which this study explored with great success.
