Star Wars’ last Jedi may use the Force of quantum science – Calgary Herald

Star Wars' last Jedi may use the Force of quantum scienceCalgary HeraldUnfortunately we cannot break Einstein's speed limit, even if we had the Millennium Falcon. We'll set aside Han Solo's perhaps not-so-absurd claim that it made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs — a measure of distance, not time. However, through …

Visualizing single molecules in whole cells with a new spin

Scientists have adapted DNA-PAINT technology to microscopes that are widespread among cell biology laboratories, called confocal microscopes, and that are used by researchers to image whole cells and thicker tissues at lower resolution. They have demonstrated that the method can visualize a variety of different molecules, including combinations of different proteins, RNAs and DNA throughout the entire depth of whole cells at super-resolution.
