Quantum computing: Qubits are the most secure way to send information

Qubits have been used in the Los Alamos Lab in order to send secure messages and it seems that they’ve proven their worth. Why is that? Because if you try to read a message transmitted by qubits you are destroying those qubits along the way, so yes, it is good. If someone tries to read the message you are sending, then they will destroy the message and you will know that somebody is between you and your secret party.

Got to love quantum compuing as it may prove to be way faster than current technology and get us into the future. a D-Wave quantum computer costs about $10 mil so it is not for everyone, but don’t forget that silicon chip computers were costing a ton of money a few decades ago. Hank Green knows how to tell this best. Enjoy.
