So in quantum physics, two particles can be entangled and that means that when one of them is moved, the other one moves - it happens faster than the
speed of light, and can be used to communicate instantly at a distance.
Check out the additional article from Phys.org. I think they are using quantum communication without entanglement.
The main advantage they are going for in this case is security - if someone eavesdrops, or observes the quantum signal, it will leave a trail.
Quantum entanglement communication has been seen in sci-fi as a useful way to communicate through space. Although a lot of older academics seem to
dismiss this as fantasy, I'm glad steps are being taken to get there.
