A Quantum Internet Connected by Cargo Ships is Not as Crazy as it Sounds

Our internet has a physical infrastructure: thousands of miles of cables that criss-cross the oceans. The quantum internet, when it exists, will have a physical infrastructure, too. But you can't send quantum bits, "qubits," on fibre optic cables, so a group of physicists has proposed a bizarre solution: cargo ships carrying data on diamond-based drives. And it's not a completely bonkers idea. Read More >>
