China moves massive rocket into place for ambitious Mars shot
Chinese satellite to begin quantum communications experiments
Q&A with Anton Zeilinger, acclaimed quantum physicist
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.
