In our world, you flip a coin and it comes up either heads or tails. But in the spooky quantum world - that's everything from a single atom all the way up to a small virus - that coin can come up both heads AND tails, depending on how you read it. So which is it? Heads? Tails? Both? Neither?

Welcome to the strange world of quantum computing where this both-true-and-false 'superposition' allows quantum computers to vastly outperform their 'classical' peers (such as the one in your smartphone). At least, that's the theory. Quantum computers are so unstable they tend to self-destruct before we can get them to run a program!

Researchers Claire Edmunds and Virginia Frey from the University of Sydney's Quantum Control Laboratory join us to explore this new quantum frontier: The deeper you go, the weirder it gets over the next billion seconds.

Is daily augmented reality closer than we think? 

Back in July 2016, 'Pokémon Go' opened the doors to the brave new world of augmented reality - an 'overnight success' fifty years in the making. With companies like Magic Leap and Facebook working hard to create augmented reality 'spectacles', the next billion seconds will see us put our smartphones down and placing the screen over our eyes instead. But who will be controlling our new, 'improved' reality?

Why is it so hard to tear ourselves away from Facebook's feed? What is it feeding us that makes it so addictive? The power of artificial intelligence combined with the eternal surveillance of the smartphone made a monster out of Zuck's social network - but has it divided us more than it united us? How are people using this social network to spread fake news? How is fake news being weaponised to change the way we vote? All of these questions - and much more - are answered in our special two-part episode, "The Last Days of Reality"
