Electric Vehicles Could Save U.S. Utilities From A Death Spiral

<b>The Utilities: Under Siege</b><p>In the past year, much has been written by various analysts concerning the risk to the utilities of declining sales volumes as a consequence of numerous factors, especially on-site solar. Every time a solar panel goes onto a roof, sales volumes decline. In May, Barclays …

Pyritohedral symmetry

<b>Pyritohedral symmetry</b><p>This animation by <b>Tom Ruen</b> shows a cube morphing into a regular dodecahedron, then into a rhombic dodecahedron, and then back again. Even better, the morphing is done in such a way as to preserve as much symmetry as possible.<p>As I mentioned in a recent post, the <b>rhombic dodecahedron</b> has 12 identical rhombus-shaped faces, and 24 rotational symmetries. Another way to say this is that there are 24 essentially different ways to pick up a rhombic dodecahedron from a table and then …

Photons are single particles of light that readily carry quantum information, but love to bunch together when produced in large amounts. The Australian researchers showed that by combining multiple devices on a silicon chip, they could produce lots of single photons reliably. This will help scale up quantum technologies required for more secure communication, improved measurement and quantum computing. Read more: http://bit.ly/18Xrk61
