China’s quantum satellite achieves two new milestones

China's quantum satellite has achieved two new milestones in long-distance quantum communications through space,  blowing away the competition. Chinese researchers have already demonstrated, during June 2017, that their satellite 'Micius' could send entangled quantum particles to far-flung locations on Earth. Entangled particles have their properties remaining intertwined despite being separated
