Can a flux capacitor give us quantum computers?
The flux capacitor itself may be complex, but it’s applications are clear. As the paper’s lead author, Clemens Mueller, noted in the news release, the device could help researchers precisely control signals, necessary to advance quantum computing. It could also help us improve the electronics we use today, everything from smartphones to radar systems.
So, sorry, this flux capacitor won’t give you the ability to travel back in time to bungle how your parents met, but did you really want to do that anyway? You could straight up erase yourself from existence! Much safer to leave the time travel to sci-fi and keep our eyes on the future.
