An untapped resource could provide the magic needed for quantum computation—and perhaps even open the door to time travel.

**Spot the Difference to Reveal Exotic Particles**

Questioning the symmetrization postulate of quantum mechanics and the notion that electrons are indistinguishable could reveal whether hypothetical new particles exist.

Here's to Neil Armstrong, a hero not just for America, but for humanity. The next person to walk on the moon will no doubt be Chinese, but no matter; even though space travel was born in the Cold War, there's a definite "one world" quality to achievements of such magnitude. I'm still holding out hope that there will be bootprints on Mars within our lifetimes.

For anyone interested in the moon, here's a blog post I did a while back on the concern--not as crazy as it sounds!--that returning Apollo astronauts might infect the earth with lunar microbes.

A follow up: Is The Moon Alive?

Cosmos Magazine has a similar idea:

And, finally, some thoughts on the 40th anniversary of Armstrong's "giant leap":

Hello to all,

the distribution of primes is relevant when we consider a finite sphere in evolution. Can we prove that the hypothesis of Riemann is correct.....

It seems relevant when we insert the fourier series and the finite groups. The serie of uniqueness seems universally linked with the primes and the sphere.

The distribution of primes is inside a sphere !!!

Hello,

Let's take the number 1 for the central sphere of our universal sphere and the number 1 for the universal sphere. If we take a simple oscillation between these two 1. So we can have a specific finite number of primes.With a kind of maximum.It can be coorelated with the maximum volume and the other volumes of spheres.

The real difficulty is this number, universal. It is a number so important. And I don't speak about volumes and rotations. This number is the same for the uniqueness serie at the two scales, in 3D. It is like I sad that the quantum uniqueness is a relativistic foto of our universal sphere and its spheres. This cosmological number is the same that the quantum number of this uniqueness. It is relevant considering a specific unique oscillation of primes implying a kind of maximum. Paradoxal but logic. This number and its volumes more the rotations are the key of many things inside our pure physicality in evolution complexification spherization optimization.

See that the space, hv and m are in the same logic considering the uniqueness serie like this cosmological number. It is fascibnating when we extrapolate the maximum contact between enatngled spheres.indeed the lattices dissapear when the contact is maximum due to the serie begining from the main central sphere, 1.The fractal is relevant when the volumes decrease towards the smaller spheres.If the primes are correlated, it becomes very relevant with the rotating spherical volumes.

The infinity, the infinities and the finite groups can be classed with the primes like a chief orchestra. This period, this oscillation, this unique frequence is relevant.

Regards

The surface of a sphere and its spheres is relevant considering the smallest sphers, see that the polarity m/hv is relevant with the volumes and the rotations for the synchros and sortings of evolutive complexification.
