Quantum entanglement is the future of the internet whether we understand it or not


Scientists in China have taken the next step in creating an internet that can’t be hacked or compromised. The future of data transfer is called quantum networking and it relies on a complex concept that takes the ‘signal’ out of sending data. Hackers can’t intercept or steal data that never travels, so there’s no signal — the source and destination, in quantum networking, are one in the same. With the new quantum internet, instead of sending information, you’ll create pairs of photons that mirror one another. This is called quantum entanglement. You’ll keep one of the photons, send someone else…
