Some of the strangest aspects of quantum mechanics, like particles that are also waves, or exist in two places at once, may result from our overestimation of how much it is possible to know about some things.
This research group uses a high-performance computing cluster, and when the compute jobs oversubscribe the resources, the monitoring system lights up like a Christmas tree. Is that so hard to get used to?
The European forecast of Hurricane Sandy in 2012 was so far ahead of U.S. models in predicting the storm's path that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration was called before Congress to explain how it happened.
