Chinese satellite to begin quantum communications experiments

August 15, 2016

China launched a pioneering satellite mission Monday to prove the viability of quantum communications from space, an innovation that could led to a worldwide network to transmit hack-proof messages among military forces, financial institutions and multinational companies.

Q&A with Anton Zeilinger, acclaimed quantum physicist

August 15, 2016

Anton Zeilinger first proposed the idea for a satellite-based quantum communications experiment to the European Space Agency in 2001, but officials did not forward with the idea. A decade-and-a-half later, the world-renowned physicist’s former student leads a Chinese project aimed at proving quantum teleportation and ultra-secure data links at global scale for the first time.
