Scientists created a biological quantum circuit in grisly experiment with tardigrades

An international team of researchers are claiming to have performed the first ever experiment successfully ‘quantum entangling’ a multi-celled organism. The team, whose research was recently published in a pre-print paper, says it’s managed to place a tardigrade – a tiny critter affectionately known as a “water bear” – in a state of quantum entanglement between a pair of superconducting qubits. In other words: the researchers managed to put a tardigrade in a state where it was directly connected...

CDC boss says COVID-19 hospitalizations are 'comparatively low' as US records most new cases in a single day

A graph highlighting recent COVID-19 trends in the US.CDC Hospitalizations and deaths are "comparatively low" in this wave of COVID-19, the CDC head said.  The news comes as new daily cases reached record levels in the US. It is driven by the Omicron variant, which makes up some 59% of new cases, according to CDC data. The US is seeing fewer COVID-19 hospitalizations per case than in previous waves, suggesting Omicron is causing "milder disease" than previous variants, the head of the Centers...
