"The discovery that a bizarre particle travels between the real world of matter and the spooky realm of antimatter 3 trillion times a second may open the door to a new era of physics, Fermilab researchers announced Monday."

I'm already jealous of the kids 20-30 years from now- imagine the toys! Cutting edge for me was Atari 2600 & Comadore 64- and I was already in my teens!

Looks like the race is on officially then, and the stakes are a whole lot bigger than those that were for the space race.

Would be the best for everyone if all western countries just worked together and shared the 'profits'. Then again, America would probably rather go to war over it. Politics.

It was a joke, but really, I do not think a lot of people in the general population of the USA trust some European nations that seem to think that the United States is somehow the biggest threat that they face in their convoluted thinking. The people of the USA love the Brits and the Italians, care about the Spanish and Eastern Euros, are considerate of Denmark, and that is really about it. They are fully aware of the attitude of some that think the United States should be broken up like the Soviet Union and that these Europeans do not comprehend that this is a impossibility, but they keep agi...

This then raised the question of whether a new kind of computer could be devised based on the principles of quantum physics. I do not look forward to the day when we go to program a computer and it tells us; "No thanks...I'll take it from here.."

The USA won't want to be second to Europe im sure. They will give the go ahead for the funding. That cat thing on wickapedia is interesting. I believe that the united federation of planets era (so to speak) will happen over night with the discovery of quantum computers. I need lessons in physics to comment any further. won't want to be, true. But when was the last time it broadcasted anything about science on the front page anyways? the usa is at war, and while technology helps in war, I doubt that understanding the big bang will give the upper hand against terrorist in pickup trucks...
