China Shatters "Spooky Action at a Distance" Record, Preps for Quantum Internet
In a landmark study, a team of Chinese scientists using an experimental satellite has tested quantum entanglement over unprecedented distances, beaming entangled pairs of photons to three ground stations across China--each separated by more than 1,200 kilometers. The test verifies a mysterious and long-held tenet of quantum theory, and firmly establishes China as the front-runner in a burgeoning "quantum space race" to create a secure, quantum-based global communications network--that is, a potentially unhackable "quantum internet" that would be of immense geopolitical importance.
