Quantum communication through satellite between China and Europe

The following is based on a translation of a report in Chinese media:

In its report titled “Creation-led industrial development serves national strategy on the 2015 national science and technology award ceremony, China ’s national official TV media CCTV gives limelight to Prof. Pan Jianwei who received the National Natural Science Award (first class) for his achievements in quantum technology.

Prof. Pan will soon complete construction of China’s Beijing-Shanghai quantum communication network and is developing a quantum communication satellite to connect with the network.

With such a quantum communication network, the Chinese military will use unbreakable quantum communication while the US military has to use conventional communication breakable by hackers if it fails to catch up with China.
