Concrete made of Fibre Waste
The negative CO2 emission, micro-plastic, landfill and other environmental impacts of the textile and concrete sectors are significant. But what if by taking fibre waste from carpets and using it to make concrete you could reduce the negative impacts of both sectors?After 7 years of research this is exactly what researchers out of the Institute for Frontier Materials (IFM) have achieved.FibreCrete 100, is a carpet fibre-reinforced concrete that can be applied to driveways, footpaths, cycle paths and industrial hardstand areas. Even better, the inclusion of carpet fibres appears to make the concrete less prone to cracking.https://ifm.deakin.edu.au/2022/10/geelong-research-collaboration-creates-australias-first-waste-carpet-sol

Quantum Apocalypse
“The evolution of quantum computers creates a significant threat to data security, and their immense processing power is capable of breaking encryption at great speed, leaving important data vulnerable, everything from bank account details to medical records to state secrets.” He said that 'this scenario is so alarming that specialists refer to it as the "Quantum Apocalypse.” The Quantum Apocalypse is 'just YEARS away', experts say.

New spin control method brings billion-qubit quantum chips closer
Australian engineers have discovered a new way of precisely controlling single electrons nestled in quantum dots that run logic gates. What's more, the new mechanism is less bulky and requires fewer parts, which could prove essential to making large-scale silicon quantum computers a reality. See

A 'Wormhole' Built on a Quantum Computer Teleported Information as Predicted
For the first time, scientists have created a quantum computing experiment for studying the dynamics of wormholes – that is, shortcuts through spacetime that could get around relativity's cosmic speed limits.
