Chinese satellite beams entangled particles over 1,200km away, sets the stage for unhackable quantum network


Quantum satellites communicate by speaking with ground based stations, as information is beamed between the two locations. Fast feed-forward is needed for the ground station to keep track of the satellite, ensuring that the information isn’t lost in space.
