Scientists are exploring the use of Rydberg-atoms as antennae for the reception of radio-waves, which has applications in deep space communications and other situations where a signal is covered in a lot of noise, or a signal is simply extremely weak, as well as radio transmissions that require a high degree of security.

To do so, they had a little help from Queen:

"The team used their quantum system to pick up stereo—with one atomic species recording the instrumental and another the vocal at two different sets of laser frequencies. They selected a Queen track—"Under Pressure"—to test if their system could handle Freddie Mercury's extensive vocal range.

"One of the reasons for cutting stereo was to show that this one receiver can pick up two channels simultaneously, which is difficult with conventional receivers," said Holloway, who explained that although it is the early days for atomic communications, there is potential to use this to improve the security of communications."

Hello everyone,

As for my introduction. I identify as a gender-fluid woman. With pro-nouns with She/Them.

We all know that Queen released 18 studio albums. I'm going to review every single Queen album, so buckle my fellow cis-white privileged straight m*n.

Queen:
I don't understand I m*n like this shit. If a band is going to produce an album. I expect quality, not quantity. Keep Yourself Alive is just boring, the rhyming is pretty bad. I mean look at Ariana Grande, there is no excuse to have your very first album and first song a bomb. Liar is just noise. Son and Daughter is triggering because it tells us that men are allowed to rape women because the writer hates equality. Jesus is so politically incorrect since the church of Scientology has better morals than Christianity.

Rating 1/10

Queen 2:

I honestly hate this album, it's boring, its a chore to listen to and the song Nevermore is a warning about how if we don't tame our boys. They will start abusing women. March of the White Queen is just 1 six minute mess with no plot. Overall, the album is trying to emulate some sort of theme within the era of Game of Thrones but without the realism (fairies, really Freddie).

Rating 0/10

Sheer Heart Attack:

Brighton Rock should be three minutes long, not six minutes long. The album is pretty lame and stupid.

0 / 10

Night At The Opea:
Boring boring boring boring... if they took Your my Best Friend away. The album would fade into mediocrity.

3 / 10

A Day At te Races":
I didn't listen to this one.

Two replies. None on topic.


Thanks for the share. It's interesting using atomic dispersion to recreate encode etc. Hopefully this'll prove more interesting in years to come... I'm pretty sure he chose under pressure as a kind of joke (atoms typically volatile) and because of Queen's peak popularity in this decade. It ensures wider readership.

I WAS going to say this could offer useful in checking celestial signals but that might not be so, until something is quantified and determined for its original source and purpose (*i.e. whether it was communication, sounds or just a random reaction)

I've never seen the film "CONTACT" but this could prove something worthwhile like the concepts explored. Maybe even to pinpoint the hour and date of when the Sun supernovas and ends our worldly existence ;)

Or as you humans call it... "language computer".
