The latest allegations are that external field trials will likely start later this year. We'll see if that actually happens and, if it does, how independent those actually are.

They must mean "later in 2017," right?

At least it's more interesting than watching water boil.

TIL that electron fields are gay. Or that they support the NHS. It's hard to tell these days.

More string art:

I AGREE


I’m now appreciating why this has taken so long to be commercially ready. In the 70s I loved making string art pictures, but they took an age to make since you had to individually hammer in all the tacks, then “weave” all the strings. No wonder it took so long to do stop motion animation using a new string picture for each frame.

Ehn, like a lot of movie directors spending more time and effort on pure imagery rather than on the script. A time varying magnetic field produces a time varying electrical field. Yet when they say the magnetic field becomes an electric field they seem to be implying that it becomes a static electrical field (as indicated by the imagery). That is, at least until they suddenly just don't anymore. By claiming it then is now a variation in charge density of the electron shell. Which of course would be a time varying electric field (also supported by the imagery). Looks like they forgot to hire a continuity supervisor.

...Or anyone with even basic scientific knowledge.
