Margaret Hamilton standing next to listings of the Apollo Guidance Computer source code – the on-board flight software that got man to the moon. A female software engineer at the time was a pretty rare sight, but that didn't stop Hamilton from leading the team that developed the software for the Apollo 11 mission in 1969. Hamilton was later given NASA's Exceptional Space Act Award for her work. Hamilton also coined the term 'software engineer'. #womeninscience #Apollo11 #margarethamilton…

China recently launched the world's first quantum communications satellite, the Quantum Science Satellite (QUESS). The aim is to test sending secure messages over large distances using quantum entanglement. Unlike regular satellite signals which can be easily intercepted, signals sent using quantum entanglement cannot be hacked, potentially heralding an era of unhackable global communication. This diagram by @newscientistofficial nicely demonstrates how it works.  #quantum #science…
