Chinese scientists break quantum computing world record
Chinese physicists have achieved quantum entanglement with 18 qubits, surpassing the previous world record of 10. This represents a step toward realizing large-scale quantum computing, according to a recent study published in the journal Physical Review Letters. Quantum entanglement is a phenomenon in which two or more entangled subatomic particles, or qubits, can theoretically affect each other simultaneously regardless of distance. The idea was so counterintuitive that Albert Einstein mocked it as "spooky action at a distance."
