Its a long shot, but the Russians do seem to have deep enough pockets to fund it for a few years, giving it a fighting chance.

With the Ukraine situation looking troublesome....sides may have to be taken.....seems the RQC people mentioned have U.S. ties....can the Quantum Computer predict these uncertainties/probabilities?  Or do the Chinese already have everybody out-smarted already.  The RQC endeavor may go the way of the Crimean McDonalds...

Its Called uncrackable because any attempt to ease drop destroys the quantum state thus scrambling the data.

@JannineLove, i also think that most of the work is wrapped under confidentiality agreements. There was a recent news about a Chinese group showing progress on quantum computation but it was a surprise to most of the researcher as noone thought that Chinese group could have been that far in research.

I tripped on the phrase, too, Janine.  Whenever I see "uncrackable" in relation to security, I envision a savvy hacker out there who see that as a new challenge.  I can almost hear her/him saying: "Let's just see about that!"

I'm thinking about the "uncrackable encryption techniques" mentioned. How much international "sharing" goes on in this field? Seems like there must be a secret arm of the government that monitors/deals with this.
