Colorado Tech Weekly #307: Arctic Research, A Black Hole and the Quantum Realm
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
Science is cool. It’s REALLY cool! And one of the things that excites me the most about working in tech is the chance to help really smart people do really coo things. This week Colorado tech gets to go join an arctic research project, helped produce a picture of a black hole and experience the quantum realm.
Ok that last one may have been some internal confusion with Avengers Endgame which is a great movie! Have a great week!
