Welcome to Top10Archive! Science is an ever-expanding field with discoveries being made more frequently than any of us may realize. While some may work as simple watercooler conversation in labs, other findings, like the 10 compiled in this installment, are astounding and, at a risk of sounding over-dramatic, completely mind-blowing.

  1. I don’t know about you guys but more Science advance you can really know
    this is not random and some one created all this.

  2. Where are the Clones? They’ve been successful with animals so where’s the
    human clone research? Plus the human/animal hybrid. Trying to make Man run
    as fast as a leopard and strong as a silver back gorilla.

    • I am glad I woke up, went to work and clicked on this video. I discovered
      something new today. But it only exists under super cooled conditions. 😄

    • Researchers began by pumped rubidium atoms into a vacuum chamber, then used
      lasers to cool the cloud of atoms to just a few degrees above absolute
      zero. Using extremely weak laser pulses, they then fired single photons
      into the cloud of atoms.
      As the photons enter the cloud of cold atoms, Lukin said, its energy
      excites atoms along its path, causing the photon to slow dramatically. As
      the photon moves through the cloud, that energy is handed off from atom to
      atom, and eventually exits the cloud with the photon.
      “When the photon exits the medium, its identity is preserved,” Lukin said.
      “It’s the same effect we see with refraction of light in a water glass. The
      light enters the water, it hands off part of its energy to the medium, and
      inside it exists as light and matter coupled together, but when it exits,
      it’s still light. The process that takes place is the same it’s just a bit
      more extreme – the light is slowed considerably, and a lot more energy is
      given away than during refraction.”
      When Lukin and colleagues fired two photons into the cloud, they were
      surprised to see them exit together, as a single molecule.
      The reason they form the never-before-seen molecules?
      An effect called a Rydberg blockade, Lukin said, which states that when an
      atom is excited, nearby atoms cannot be excited to the same degree. In
      practice, the effect means that as two photons enter the atomic cloud, the
      first excites an atom, but must move forward before the second photon can
      excite nearby atoms.
      The result, he said, is that the two photons push and pull each other
      through the cloud as their energy is handed off from one atom to the next.
      “It’s a photonic interaction that’s mediated by the atomic interaction,”
      Lukin said. “That makes these two photons behave like a molecule, and when
      they exit the medium they’re much more likely to do so together than as
      single photons.”
