China performs quantum messaging over longer distances

hinese scientists have announced that they have made a major breakthrough in quantum communications, claiming to successfully transmit data via a quantum channel over a distance of 2.7 kilometres, according to a report by Defense One. If the claim is verified, it will mark a significant milestone in quantum communication methods — sending messages that cannot be intercepted or spied on. Quantum-encrypted data cannot be eavesdropped because a third party tampering with the communication channel causes a quantum message to change, and both the recipient and the sender will know…
