In a First, Photons are ‘Teleported’ from Earth to Space

Chinese researchers have successfully transmitted quantum entangled particles from a station on earth to a satellite orbiting far overhead.

The experiment is part of an ongoing effort by researchers using the Micius satellite to achieve long-distance quantum communication, a feat that would yield hacker-proof information networks. In this most recent work, researchers from the University of Science and Technology of China beamed photons to the satellite and transmitted the state of other
