A Giant Quantum Leap

Chinese scientists have established a quantum entanglement between particles 1200 kilometres apart, smashing the previous world record of 143 kilometres. In early 2016, China announced a successful transmission of “entangled” photon pairs from space to the Earth, which proves that quantum entanglement exists at a large distance. The result is a stepping stone to ultrasecure communication networks and, eventually, a […]
