China carried out quantum teleportation for 1.2 thousand kilometers

Teleportation was carried out with the help of two satellites.

Chinese scientists have made a quantum teleportation between the cosmos and the Earth for a distance of more than 1.2 thousand kilometers, reports EurekAlert!

Teleportation was carried out with the help of two satellites and three ground stations, the distance between which varied from 1600 to 2400 kilometers. The efficiency of the new method of information transmission is 17 orders of magnitude higher than widespread commercial commercial fiber-optic cables.

In August, China successfully launched the world’s first Mo-tzu quantum communication satellite from the Jiuquan Cosmodrome in Gansu Province. “If China is going to send more quantum communication satellites into orbit, we can expect establishment of a global quantum communication network by about 2030,” Jianwei commented.

Earlier, he said that in the event of a successful launch of the satellite, a quantum link between the satellite and the Earth would be first established.
