Scientists have teleported quantum information between two bits of diamond located 10 feet apart. It's a prime example of "spooky action at a distance" — and an achievement that could lead to quantum networks exponentially more powerful and secure than today's supercomputers.
Earlier this year, NASA, in partnership with Google, acquired the world's largest quantum computer. But just what does the space agency plan to do with a device with such revolutionary potential? We talked to one of their lead researchers to find out.
An international team of scientists have just held a qubit's memory state for 39 minutes. That might not sound like much, but it's 100 times longer than the previous record. It's a groundbreaking achievement that could pave the way to freakishly fast computers.
