    Researchers with the CERN-based ALPHA collaboration have announced the world's first laser-based manipulation of antimatter, leveraging a made-in-Canada laser system to cool a sample of antimatter down to near absolute zero
    .

    Is this cooler than what it sounds like, I have no idea to be honest

    Well, it doesn't get any cooler than absolute zero.

    It's still pretty cool to just be near it.

    I have no idea what the significance of this achievement is but it sure sounds cool, it involves both antimatter AND lasers!
    Probably useful for doing more experiments on antimatter to test weird physics stuff.

    Sure, shove your hand in the magnetic confinement tube and someone will definitely get blown up

    Yeah this is the main goal of the experiment. They want to verify that antimatter obeys the same laws of gravity. First see which direction it falls in, then hopefully set some bounds on how fast.
    If you want to measure which way something falls, first you need to make sure it's completely still at the start.

    This sounds exceptionally basic and it is, but it is also something that hasn't been done yet, and is very difficult.

    Shooting antimatter with a laser to slow it down to human-physics speeds is basic??

    21-year-old University of Sydney student helps solve quantum computing problem with simple modification
    Assistant professor Shruti Puri of Yale's quantum research program said the new code solved a problem that had persisted for 20 years.

    "What amazes me about this new code is its sheer elegance," she said.

    "Its remarkable error-correcting properties are coming from a simple modification to a code that has been studied extensively for almost two decades."

    When I was 21 I think I just about had the hang of parallel parking.

    How to Publish a Scientific Comment in 123 Easy Steps

    Folks, if you think publishing a scientific paper is hard (it is), formally publishing a comment on a scientific paper will make you want to scream until there is no blood left in your body.

    What he describes is more of an anti-process, and that fact that it's at least better than 4chan isn't saying much in its favour.

    Yeah. No. That process as stated has numerous beaurocratic contradictions and is heavily, heavily biased in favor of the authors, even if they are trivially demonstrably wrong.

    There's no defending this. Weening this labyrinth insanity down to something reasonable will not cause scientific literature to be inundated with shitposts.

    There is nothing acceptable, or scientific, about what happened there. Actively preventing peer review is, in fact, the opposite of good science.

    edit: in fact you could make a good argument that the original paper was, itself, a shitpost, considering how bad it is, and all the process did is defend a shitpost.

    Author should have named the journal so it could be fired into the sun.
    But that probably would have limited their chances at being published again.

    Fun stuff reading that thread and immediately seeing a guy mansplaining how she's making them wrong.

    As someone who knows nothing about the subject, I thought her approach of doing a quick pour-in-pour-out of beeswax was a super-clever way of sealing and smoothing the inside of the mould with a substance guaranteed to be non-toxic and to cleanly break away from the finished product.

    I read the Ars article on that report and some of the descriptions of issues were just stunning. I worked at a pharma plant like 15 years ago for a few months and doing any one of those things would have been a huge violation of SOP, that would probably have shut down the line while they determine if any cross contamination occurred and destroyed a significant portion of a batch. And I just worked in inspection and packaging where the product is already sealed, not mix or fill.

    Like, by way of example: we were doing insulin. The insulin was in glass vials, that we packed in corrugated plastic boxes of ~330, and then we'd put 4 of those boxes in a corrugated cardboard box. If that box, which represented 3 layers of material between the product and the outside world, was set on the floor instead of on a pallet, it became trash.

    This stuff is completely imaginary. Biden has not proposed any limit on Americans’ meat consumption.

    What happened: 1) The Daily Mail ran an article that dishonestly connected Biden’s climate plan with a not-at-all-about-Biden study. 2) Others on the right just ran with this.

    In children’s terms, the study found that if people reduce meat eating by a lot, emissions would fall a lot.

    Daily Mail was like...Biden wants to cut emissions by a lot. Therefore, he’ll force people to reduce meat eating by the same amount this random study looked at.

    which has also worked for decades because Democrats are always reactive instead of active, and their reactions are never stronger than "er, uh, nuh-uh!" and often are nothing more than deafening silence
