Physicists have long wondered if the laws of quantum mechanics also apply to the ‘classical’ world. The EU-funded CAVITYQPD project has shown quantum entanglement between macroscale objects. Harnessing the quantum behaviour of everyday objects could propel citizens from the digital to the quantum age, facilitating our lives with vastly more sophisticated technologies.
Earth Observation data is information about Earth’s physical, chemical and biological systems, often coming from satellites. The EU-funded openEO project developed a new interface to help users access, process and compare data from different providers. This is an important step towards allowing communication between platforms from different providers, benefiting researchers and citizens.
How many stars in the Milky Way have at least one planet similar to Earth? A rocky planet that is capable of sustaining liquid water on its surface? More than one in five, say EU-funded researchers who shed new light on the nature of terrestrial exoplanets, boosting Europe's contribution to the advancement of astrophysics.
