Nasa buys into 'quantum' computer
A $15m computer that uses "quantum physics" effects to boost its speed is to be installed at a Nasa facility.
Unlike standard machines, the D-Wave Two processor appears to make use of an effect called quantum tunnelling.
This allows it to reach solutions to certain types of mathematical problems in fractions of a second.
Effectively, it can try all possible so…
