Protein buildups like those seen around neurons in Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other brain diseases occur in all aging cells, a new study suggests. Learning their significance may reveal new strategies for treating age-related diseases. The post Protein Blobs Linked to Alzheimer’s Affect Aging in All Cells first appeared on Quanta Magazine…
 
Jared Duker Lichtman, 26, has proved a longstanding conjecture relating prime numbers to a broad class of “primitive” sets. To his adviser, it came as a “complete shock.” The post Graduate Student’s Side Project Proves Prime Number Conjecture first appeared on Quanta MagazineBy Quanta Magazine
 
The second law of thermodynamics is among the most sacred in all of science, but it has always rested on 19th century arguments about probability. New arguments trace its true source to the flows of quantum information. The post Physicists Rewrite the Fundamental Law That Leads to Disorder first appeared on Quanta Magazine…
 
Robots are about to venture into the sunless depths of lunar craters to investigate ancient water ice trapped there, while remote studies find hints about how water arrives on rocky worlds. The post Secrets of the Moon’s Permanent Shadows Are Coming to Light first appeared on Quanta MagazineBy Quanta Magazine
 
Quantum field theory may be the most successful scientific theory of all time, but there’s reason to think it’s missing something. Steven Strogatz speaks with theoretical physicist David Tong about this enigmatic theory. The post What Is Quantum Field Theory and Why Is It Incomplete? first appeared on Quanta Magazine…
 
For centuries, mathematicians have tried to prove that Euler’s fluid equations can produce nonsensical answers. A new approach to machine learning has researchers betting that “blowup” is near. The post Deep Learning Poised to ‘Blow Up’ Famed Fluid Equations first appeared on Quanta MagazineBy Quanta Magazine
 
What makes a proof stronger than a guess? What does evidence look like in the realm of mathematical abstraction? Hear the mathematician Melanie Matchett Wood explain how probability helps to guide number theorists toward certainty. The post How Do Mathematicians Know Their Proofs Are Correct? first appeared on Quanta Magazine…
 
Biomechanical interactions, rather than neurons, control the movements of one of the simplest animals. The discovery offers a glimpse into how animal behavior worked before neurons evolved. The post This Animal’s Behavior Is Mechanically Programmed first appeared in Quanta Magazine. Music is “Running Out” by Patrick Patrikios.…
 
The space telescope is one of the most ambitious scientific projects ever undertaken. Marcia Rieke and Nikole Lewis, two of the scientists leading JWST investigations, talk to Steven Strogatz about how it may transform our understanding of the universe. The post Will the James Webb Space Telescope Reveal Another Earth? first appeared on Quanta Maga…
 
Researchers have mapped hundreds of semantic categories to the tiny bits of the cortex that represent them in our thoughts and perceptions. What they discovered might change our view of memory. The post New Map of Meaning in the Brain Changes Ideas About Memory first appeared on Quanta MagazineBy Quanta Magazine
