SpooQy-1 shows promise of nanosatellites for quantum networks

 

We are celebrating a succesful year in orbit for SpooQy-1, the quantum nanosatellite built at CQT. Data published 25 June 2020 confirm that quantum entanglement is being created onboard the 2.6kg satellite, some 400km above Earth - a step towards building a global quantum internet. The picture shows the  satellite being launched from the International Space Station in June 2019.
