Australia has just unveiled its first National Quantum Strategy, which aims to make the nation a 'leader of the global quantum industry' by encouraging research, application and commercialisation.
Accidental breakthrough by Australian scientists could be key to large scale quantum computers being cheaper and more usable
Quantum computers promise to revolutionise computing, but the technology is not without its problems. Research coming out of Australia’s University of New South Wales (UNSW) might take us a step closer to tackling one of the major problems: how to control single quantum bits in a series of them.
Australia has a big problem with plastic waste, with millions of tons of household and industrial plastics breaking down in landfill, rivers and the sea every year.
