Proof Of Quantum Vibrations

A new experiment successfully observing the effects of quantum motion, or tiny vibrations caused on an atomic level when an object otherwise appears to be stationary, has rocked physicists the world over. Courtesy of NASA Unlike traditional physics that states an object in motion will eventually come to a rest when the forces of gravity and friction act upon it, the study, published in the journal Science, has found that on the quantum level at the scale of atoms, nothing is ever truly at rest.  Through extensive testing researchers were able to observe the effect not just at an atomic level, but at a larger...
