With only minutes until sunrise aboard the International Space Station (ISS), astronaut Nick Hague rushed to shut off the lights in the Japanese Experiment Module (JEM). Traveling 17,500 miles per hour, the space station orbits Earth 16 times in 24 hours, so every 90 minutes, the space station experiences a sunrise. For this sunrise, though, the speed of their approach was putting a time crunch on Hague. To capture this moment, timing was everything as he worked diligently to set up the perfect camera shot.

However, a new study in The Astrophysical Journal Letters, led by scientists at the American Museum of Natural History and the City University of New York (CUNY), suggests that researchers might finally be able to see light from black hole mergers if the collisions happen in the presence of gas.

This includes entangled states such as the paradigmatic Bell states or a quantum Ising chain near its critical point. The task of sampling from these states may be performed efficiently by physically implementing the network on neuromorphic hardware. A deep neural network structure is proposed for the sampling of arbitrary and, in general, noncommuting observables, where a phase-reweighting scheme is used in view of the complex coupling parameters. Entanglement is demonstrated through the violation of Bell inequalities.

In this study the authors present a sensing protocol that enables direct detection of time-dependent magnetic fields, without the need to reconstruct the signal, effectively turning their quantum sensor into a sort of oscilloscope. This scheme will be useful for investigating e.g. the nanoscale dynamics of photocurrents or magnetic domain walls. While it is demonstrated using N-V centers in diamond, the authors’ method is applicable to any qubitlike sensor.

The authors uncover that two disorder-mediated corrections to the NLHE, namely, the nonlinear side jump and the nonlinear skew scattering, can be as large as the intrinsic Berry curvature dipole contribution. These findings will help to understand recent experiments searching for NLHE in various materials. They also offer a description of the role of disorder in current rectification in materials without inversion symmetry that could be relevant for wireless energy harvesting technology.

Providing a depth-rich Virtual Reality (VR) experience to users without causing discomfort remains to be a challenge with today's commercially available head-mounted displays (HMDs), which enforce strict measures on stereoscopic camera parameters for the sake of keeping visual discomfort to a minimum. However, these measures often lead to an unimpressive VR experience with shallow depth feeling. We propose the first method ready to be used with existing consumer HMDs for automated stereoscopic camera control in virtual environments (VEs). Using radial basis function interpolation and projection matrix manipulations, our method makes it possible to significantly enhance user experience in terms of overall perceived depth while maintaining visual discomfort on a par with the default arrangement.

Social Virtual Reality Learning Environment (VRLE) is a novel edge computing platform for collaboration amongst distributed users. Given that VRLEs are used for critical applications (e.g., special education, public safety training), it is important to ensure security and privacy issues. In this paper, we present a novel framework to obtain quantitative assessments of threats and vulnerabilities for VRLEs. Based on the use cases from an actual social VRLE viz., vSocial, we first model the security and privacy using the attack trees. Subsequently, these attack trees are converted into stochastic timed automata representations that allow for rigorous statistical model checking. Such an analysis helps us adopt pertinent design principles such as hardening, diversity and principle of least privilege to enhance the resilience of social VRLEs. Through experiments in a vSocial case study, we
