Optical quantum computers VS Superconducting quantum computers VS Electron-spin quantum computers

One of the main problems of superconducting quantum computers is that it is necessary to maintain a very low temperature (near absolute zero). Such cooling is very expensive and complex. Why, then, ...

Why does measuring the spin of an atom or electron give results that are considered "peculiar"?

When an atoms/electron spin is measured, why do the measurements of spin always align with the direction of the magnets used while measuring it ? (based on my reading of Chris Bernhardt, Quantum ...
