I’ve literally been laughing at this for the past five minutes
In what could prove to be a major breakthrough in quantum memory storage and information processing, German researchers have frozen the fastest thing in the universe: light. And they did so for a record-breaking one minute.
It sounds weird and it is. The reason for wanting to hold light in its place (aside from the sheer awesomeness of it) is to ensure that it retains its quantum coherence properties (i.e. its information state), thus making it possible to build light-based quantum memory. And the longer that light can be held, the better as far as computation is concerned. Accordingly, it could allow for more secure quantum communications over longer distances.
Needless to say, halting light is not easy — you can’t just put in the freezer. Light is electromagnetic radiation that moves at 300 million meters per second. Over the course of a one minute span, it can travel about 11 million miles (18 million km), or 20 round trips to the moon. So it’s a rather wily and slippery medium, to say the least.
But light can be slowed down and even halted altogether. And in fact, researchers once kept it still for 16 seconds by using cold atoms.
Holy crap. I feel like the secret to space travel is somewhere in this. Not moving through space but moving it around us—bending light to a stopping point so we can travel without losing time… THE FUTURE IS NOW.
GUYS COLORADO NEEDS SOME HELP
There is a bill about to be passed called Amendment 67 that is the ban on ALL abortions. THIS INCLUDES IF THE MOTHER WOULD DIE OR IF SHE WAS RAPED. THIS BILL ALSO CAN MAKE POLICE INSTIGATE ALL NON-LIVE BIRTHS (MISCARRIAGE/STILLBORN).
TUMBLR PLEASE BLOW THIS UP. PLEASE IM BEGGING YOU
Right after the rain.
Richard Haste, an NYPD officer, killed an unarmed black teen (Ramarley Graham) in front of his grandmother and 6-year-old brother at point blank range over marijuana. The landlady, Paulet Minzie, 55, ran out the shower with only a towel after hearing the gunshots. Officers then put a gun to her head and told her to put her hands up. It wasn’t until she told them that there were cameras surveilling them, that they put their guns down.
Court papers say “[He\] immediately lowered his weapon. His demeanor completely changed, and he alerted his colleague that they may be on camera,”. The footage later revealed that Graham walked calmly to his apartment followed by police barging in without a warrant, contradicting the officers original claim that the teenager was running away from him.

Haste was freed on $50,000 bail yesterday after pleading not guilty. Police cheered for him as the parents of Graham wept in the court room.
Since this post is making the rounds again, I thought I’ll post an update.
It’s been over two and half years since a white cop broke into a home in the Bronx and shot and killed unarmed Ramarley Graham.
Since then, the family and public still has not been shown the police report or the medical examiner’s report.
It’s also been one year since the Department of Justice promised to investigate the murder, but they haven’t issued a statement since.
Richard Haste was let off twice by two separate grand juries and is still working for the NYPD.
Unfortunately, justice has not been served.

Microescalations. That’s all these are.
They’re always assumed to be in the right simply because of their badge.
The justifications that are accepted get thinner and thinner every time.
The victims are put on trial, unable to defend themselves. Because they’re dead.
And bit by bit, they get away with a little more.
Eventually, it’ll be open season.
Fuck, it already is open season.
