"A vinyl recording is probably the closest you can get to hearing what the original artist intended us to hear" Since 2007 something has been stirring or rather revolving. Vinyl sales having been on the brink of extinction have been steadily climbing. The...

Obama’s supercomputer order gets a step closer

"A modern supercomputer’s electricity bill can easily top £60 million pounds" Back in July 2015, Obama put executive orders out for the USA to build the world's fastest supercomputer by 2025, this order created the National Strategic Computing Initiative....

    Physicists have theorized that a new type of material, called a three-dimensional (3-D) topological insulator (TI), could be a candidate to create qubits for quantum computing due to its special properties. A study found that when the TI's insulating layers are as thin as 16 quintuple atomic layers […]

    The first direct measurement of the bar-shaped collection of stars at the centre of our Milky Way galaxy has been made by combining data from the Gaia mission with complementary observations by ground- and space-based telescopes. […]

Header Banner: Speed is the name of the game. The DarkDrug logo shows an Intel Xeon microchip die. Xeon is a brand of x86 microprocessors designed, manufactured, and marketed by Intel, targeted at the non-consumer workstation, server, and embedded system markets. It was introduced in June 1998. The advent ofoptical fibre cable has allowed the speed of data transmission to reach dizzy heights (shown in the DarkDrug logo). The field of applied science and engineering concerned with the design and application of optical fibers is known as fibre optics. The term was coined by Indian physicist Narinder Singh Kapany, who is widely acknowledged as the father of fibre optics.
