Beam Weapons, Data Storage Breakthroughs, etc.

Here is an update on beam weapons from Los Alamos labs. The article is two pages long, but worth the read. Hat tip to Joscelyn Files blog.

From the Science Blog, we get a link to a story about a breakthrough in data memory design. Imagine a computer that doesn't lose data even in a sudden power outage, or a coin-sized hard drive that could store 100 or more movies.

Magnetic random-access memory, or MRAM, could make these possible, and would also offer numerous other advantages. It would, for instance, operate at much faster than the speed of ordinary memory but consume 99 percent less energy.

These asymmetric "nanorings" may be the answer to a memory hog's prayers.
