In 2010 an experiment placed two aluminium-ion quantum clocks close to each other, but with the second elevated 12 inches compared to the first, making the gravitational time dilation effect visible in everyday lab scales.
Using ultra-precise quantum logic clocks, researchers at NIST demonstrated …

Neat visualization of the history of religions.

Julia Longtin always said sed was better than awk.  Here's one data point.

Although gnu sed now uses pcre, so maybe there isn't as much of a gulf anymore.

So, looks like "Quantum Levitation" is making the rounds around the Internet again.  If this is the first time to hear about it, congratulations, you are one of the lucky 10k (https://xkcd.com/1053/).

But, "Quantum Levitation" is best called Quantum Locking or anti-Meissner Superconducting Locking.  It generates a force that resists both movement away from the magnet and movement toward the magnet, allowing it to "levitate" things both above, below, and to-the-side of the track, at the same time.

In addition to this video, also check out the Japanese researchers duplicating a "Wipeout" track using quantum locking including 90 degree embanked loops.
