Bits are the intellectual life-blood of computing. A bit is either in the zero position or the one position. In Quantum Physics the Theory of Entanglement states that one particle can exist in two separate and distant places at the same time. The application in Quantum Computing is that when both the zero and the one are active at the same time, in separate and distant places, they are called qubits. Qubits would exponentially increase the power of computing. If possible, this translates to two to the nth power. It has, also, been stated that extremely large exponents is a theoretical and unattainable value.
There is a Neutrino detector called Minerva at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. From the University of Rochester, scientists have beamed a message through the ground using neutrinos in binary code; they then published a paper in the journal Modern Physics Letters A expressing their results.
Between Quantum Computing Qubits and Neutrinos traveling through matter faster than the speed of light, HICAP anxiously awaits our exciting future.

As I hoped, this has been one of the most exciting years ever at ISOC-NY Harlem Internet Computer Access Program. With the 'Breaking Barriers' video honorably featured in the Internet Hall of Fame, our journey this session has been informative and rewarding. In addition to studying the technical aspects of computing, we discussed:
- Tuskegee Airmen known as the Red Tail and their mutiny that was the model for the non-violent protests led by Dr. Martrin Luther King
- The Quakers' contribution to the Underground Rail Road
- Solar Storm Cycle resulting in Aurora Borealis and Neutrino particles
- Sun Spots and Solar Sound
- Large objects such as the Pyramids and Stonehenge being as moved with sound
- Neutrinoes being produced in a lab to use in future computing
- Utilization and creation of QR Codes
- Unclaimed Funds (official site)
- Free local events with Internet Access
Graduation Celebration on Friday, June 22, 2012 at 5:30 p.m.
