Physicists link two time crystals in seemingly impossible experiment

Physicists have created a system of two connected time crystals, which are strange quantum systems that are stuck in an endless loop to which the normal laws of thermodynamics do not apply. By connecting two time crystals together, the physicists hope to use the technology to eventually build a new kind of quantum computer. 

“It is a rare privilege to explore a completely novel phase of matter,” Samuli Autti, the lead scientist on the project from Lancaster University in the United Kingdom, told Live Science in an email.
