E3: New Artwork, GPS & Nano-optics

August 5, 2018

Episode 3 is here! This week we're talking all about how global positioning systems work, as well as delving into some of the interesting new quantum mechanical advancements in silver nanostructures! 

 

If you have any questions, queries or complaints (or even artwork submissions) contact us at sparksquarks@gmail.com.
