ENGins | The Tech News You Want
Your Engineering Inspiration for Sunday 12 July 2020

For stories that clarify and help decipher developments in engineering and technology, check the Explainers tab on the ENGins front page.

Whether you're interested in how the Nobel Prize-winning exoplanet was found, are interested in over-clocking your Raspberry Pi 4, or would like to get the low-down on brain-training apps, the Explainer tab will keep you informed.

You can turn off customisation using the switch at the top of the page for a wider range of Explainer articles, or hone it down to a specific field—using either your customisation options or the drop-down section menus—for a more tailored selection.

Very best,

An unstable massive star has suddenly vanished from view, and astronomers aren’t sure if it collapsed into a black hole or is playing peek-a-boo behind galactic dust. The star was too far away to spot on its own, but it...
As researchers worldwide work toward a potential quantum internet, a major roadblock remains: How to build a device called a quantum repeater. Advances in quantum information science have brought on the possibility of a quantum internet—networks that carry information via...
In a world’s first, researchers in France and the U.S. have performed a pioneering experiment demonstrating “hybrid” quantum networking. The approach, which unites two distinct methods of encoding information in particles of light called photons, could eventually allow for more...
Anytime astronomers figure out a new way of looking for magnetic fields in ever more remote regions of the cosmos, inexplicably, they find them. These force fields — the same entities that emanate from fridge magnets — surround Earth, the...
