This is pretty amazing. The quantum age has almost arrived. Key developments like this bring us a step closer. The fact that NIST is doing this and not just some university experiment is quite exciting.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has announced that it has quadrupled the previous world's record for transmitting photons by quantum teleportation, up from 25 kilometers (16 miles) to 102 kilometers (63 miles) making long-range transmission of uncrackable encryption keys over fiber optics a reality.
