Scientists have demonstrated long-distance ‘quantum teleportation’ – the instant transfer of units of quantum information known as qubits – for the first time.
The qubits were transferred faster than the speed of light over a distance of 27 miles, laying the foundations for a quantum internet service, which could one day revolutionise computing.
Quantum communication systems are faster and more secure than regular networks because they use photons rather than computer code, which can be hacked.
But their development relies on cutting-edge scientific theory which transforms our understanding of how computers work.
