Probably, when you think of scientific advances, you immediately think of changes produced by individuals with a higher educational level and with a higher IQ, as was Isaac Newton or Albert Einstein.
But the truth is that today everyone can make an important scientific breakthrough derived from a simple coincidence, and although, it is clear that scientists have now better technology than in past centuries, we can still see less drastic advances in the world.
That is why for this year there are some scientists who promised new revelations towards certain fields of modern science. Technology is stepping strong in our lives and the major progresses are actually technological.
From thousands of atoms to modern cars we can see the great efforts of humanity to make changes in the world around us. In this article, we will talk about upcoming scientific breakthroughs.
Data Storage in DNA
An excellent example of this, is the use of synthetic DNA chains to store large amounts of data, it is something new in the world. Just as DNA in the human body contains a wealth of information, research found that a few grams of DNA can store an exabyte of data and keep it intact for thousands of years, which is a really important breakthrough.
Better Look at Black Holes
We have been able to confirm the existence of black holes by measuring the movements of the individual stars that orbit them and, although it is actually more difficult to obtain images of these things, progress has been made in this respect.
Researchers have realized the idea of creating an image using a large number of radio telescopes to simultaneously measure the same objects from a wide range of locations, and then gather them together to get a general picture of the system.
Using the principles of quantum mechanics, this approach is a step forward from the usual 0 and 1 binaries, to the more complex qubit. By working with quantum algorithms to process information, these much more powerful machines are expected to make learning much more complicated and accurate for a machine, and make a lot of technological breakthroughs.
Immediately after the advances in quantum computing, it was obvious that the technology would be applied to the Internet, which allows the qubits encoded with information to be sent and received from places around the world.
Several countries have already developed quantum-capable satellites that could host a quantum Internet, and they expect to see great strides in the coming years on this amazing technology.
These scientific and technological advances will be very important for our future, thanks to the storage of DNA we can perpetuate our knowledge through all generations and the quantum Internet will help us to protect all our data on corrupt people. We certainly live in the golden age of science.
