Quantum Internet Is 13 Years Away - Wait, What's Quantum Internet?

A year ago this week, Chinese physicists launched the world’s first quantum satellite. Unlike the dishes that deliver your Howard Stern and cricket tournaments, this 1,400-pound behemoth doesn’t beam radio waves. Instead, the physicists designed it to send and receive bits of information encoded in delicate photons of infrared light. It’s a test of a budding technology known as quantum communications, which experts say could be far more secure than any existing info relay system.

The story is too old to be commented.

It's 2017, if you don't know what quantum computing/ quantum internet is by now, then you probably shouldn't be writing tech stories, or for Wired.

Admittedly, Wired really has dropped off in the past 5 years.
