Rocket builder Relativity Space this summer moved into its new headquarters in Long Beach, California – and already the company is manufacturing the parts it needs for its first launch late next year.
Additive manufacturing processes such as 3D-printing have been a godsend to the automotive industry, allowing automakers to quickly and cheaply mock up prototype components for test-fitting and developing.
But nowhere are the benefits of 3D-printing felt more strongly than in motorsport - a pursuit rife with bespoke one-off components that, until recently, all cost an arm and a leg to manufacture. Chevrolet recently shared that it had amassed some 80,000 miles of all-out competition with 3D-printed components between its IndyCar, NASCAR, Corvette Racing, and Silverado motorsport efforts, and with each race run, the company inches closer to being able to use the technology on production car parts.
A new algorithm that fast forwards simulations could bring greater use ability to current and near-term quantum computers, opening the way for applications to run past strict time limits that hamper many quantum calculations.
"Quantum computers have a limited time to perform calculations before their useful quantum nature, which we call coherence, breaks down," said Andrew Sornborger of the Computer, Computational, and Statistical Sciences division at Los Alamos National Laboratory, and senior author on a paper announcing the research. "With a new algorithm we have developed and tested, we will be able to fast forward quantum simulations to solve problems that were previously out of reach." Read article
