Ancient trees are fascinating, but the answer to the question in the title isn’t as cut and dried as it might first seem. There are two major contenders for the superlative, and Hank has all the important information on both of them in this episode of SciShow. Which one would you give the title to?

A quantum computer works in a totally different way from a classical computer. Quantum bits or ‘qubits’ can exist in a superposition state of both zero and one simultaneously. This means that a set of two qubits can be in a superposition of four states, which therefore require four numbers to uniquely identify the state. So the amount of information stored in N qubits is two to the power of N classical bits.

Due to the huge amount of snow in France this winter, Bikepark Châtel will open a bit late. As we have a spy from Shaperideshoot who works as a shaper in the resort we had the chance to ride the fresh made trails. Can’t wait to June 22nd for the opening.
A cause des énormes quantités de neiges tombées cet hiver le Bikepark de Châtel n’ouvrira ses portes que le 22 Juin. Mais ne vous inquiétez pas, toute l’équipe de shaper est à pied d’oeuvre pour vous offrir des pistes au top à cette date.
Ashima Shiraishi, an 11-year-old bouldering enthusiast from New York City, has been turning more than a few heads in the climbing world.
In a robot lab at TEDGlobal, Raffaello D’Andrea demos his flying quadcopters: robots that think like athletes, solving physical problems with algorithms that help them learn. In a series of nifty demos, D’Andrea show drones that play catch, balance and make decisions together — and watch out for an I-want-this-now demo of Kinect-controlled quads.
