GC: n CT: The massive amount of processing power generated by computer manufacturers has not yet been able to quench our thirst for speed and computing capacity. In 1947, American computer engineer Howard Aiken said that just six electronic digital computers would satisfy the computing needs of the United States.
GC: n CT: Forty years ago, protons and neutrons were thought to be fundamental particles like electrons. In other words, it was thought that they could not be divided into smaller particles. In the 1960s, physicists working at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center found that electrons traveling near the speed
