Quantum teleportation, lightning effects such as “Elves”, and levitating frogs have all been in the news, and are effects that are actually observed. They are also related to the ideas that make such science fiction series as Star Trek work. But are the observed effects really related to their science fiction counterparts, or is this all just smart marketing? And what is the current status of the research? The answers are perhaps even more surprising than the fiction.</div><div> Fri, 30 Nov 2012 23:57:21 +0000 Texas Lutheran University 2644 at http://tpr.org From Science Fiction To Reality With Dr. Herman Batelaan Eliza Thomason Presents Colorful Viola Recital, 'Wild Purple,' at TLU http://tpr.org/post/eliza-thomason-presents-colorful-viola-recital-wild-purple-tlu <p></p><p></p><p>Viola is the middle voice of the string family and is often considered more mellow than the violin.
