Can 'funny' and 'science' be used in the same sentence? The California Institute of Technology and 89.3 KPCC think so. Starting Monday, Dec. 5, Caltech and 89.3 KPCC will kick off a witty one-minute daily program designed to give you your recommended daily allowance of science...along with a healthy dose of humor. Even if--especially if--you don't know the difference between a quark and a quasar, barely got a C in trigonometry, or blew up the high school chemistry lab, it's OK, you'll enjoy this new program.

Rob Figueiredo has a standing $1,000 bet with a classmate back at MIT about when a certain milestone in quantum computation will be achieved. Considering that there is no such thing as a practical quantum computer—or at least not yet—Figueiredo's enthusiasm may seem overly optimistic.
