Our Research in "Up-Goer 5" format
Challenged to describe our research using only the ten one hundred most common words, here is what Wes came up with:
We make fast computers from tiny pieces of air. We point light at little air parts to make them ice cold, then make them jump around and hit into each other. We can see the answer at the end by how they look, dark or bright. Dark parts mean one answer, bright parts mean another. Even though this computer is tiny, we can beat a great big one, because very cold, very small stuff can do more than one thing at the same time.
