Is Dunkirk signaling the renaissance of 70mm film or is it just a fascinating anomaly?

Christopher Nolan's war epic Dunkirk is currently rolling out the widest 70mm release of any film in 25 years. With digital cameras and projectors dominating the film industry Nolan is one of several celluloid purists working in Hollywood today. With Dunkirk he has doubled down on his devotion to celluloid shooting most of the film not only on film but on large-format IMAX film stock. The resulting feature is being screened in a variety formats around the world but Nolan has suggested the ideal way to watch his opus is in IMAX theaters on 15/70 IMAX film.

Scientists at Stanford and the University of California have found evidence of Majorana fermions – particles ...

Every fundamental particle in the universe has an antiparticle, which has the same mass but the opposite charge. If a particle should ever meet its antiparticle, the two would annihilate each other in a flash of energy. But it's long been theorized that there's an exception to the rule, with certain particles that are actually their own antiparticles. Now, scientists from Stanford and the University of California have found the first strong evidence for this type of particle, which they dub the "angel particle."
