    New Chinese Super-Satellite | 中国超级量子通讯卫星
    Date/Time: 2016/08/11
    Synopsis:
    The Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Austrian Academy of Sciences have collaborated to launch the world’s first satellite designed to do quantum experiments. A fleet of quantum-enabled craft is likely to follow with the aim of creating a super-secure communications network to link people anywhere in the world.
     
    The $100million USD mission is only the first step; if the first satellite goes well, China will definitely launch more,” says Chaoyang Lu, a physicist at the Hefei University of Science and Technology of China. Lu works with the team behind the Chinese satellite. According to him, about 20 satellites would be required to enable secure communications throughout the world.
     
    Quantum communications are considered more secure than the standard technology used today. Two parties can communicate secretly by sharing a encryption key. Any eavesdropping would leave its mark. The satellite launch is planned for mid-August, which following the August 5th launch of China's Tiantong-1 mobile communications satellite, would mean a very productive month for China's rsapidly developing aerospace industry. 
     
    中国科学院和奥地利科学院合作研发出了全世界首个用于开展量子实验的人造卫星。未来预计还将推出一系列量子卫星,用来创造一个超安全的通讯网络,连接世界上的每一个角落。
     
    参与这项工程的合肥科学科技大学的物理学家陆朝阳说到:“这项耗资一亿美金的工程只是第一步,如果第一颗卫星运行正常,中国绝对会发射更多的卫星。”陆先生称,要实现全球的安全通讯网络,至少需要20颗卫星。
     
    量子通讯要比目前使用的标准科技更安全。双方可通过共享一个加密秘钥来实现秘密通讯。任何窃听的行为都将留下行踪。该卫星预计将于8月中旬发射,紧接着8月5日发射升空的天通一号通讯卫星,这个月对于蒸蒸日上的中国航空航天领域来说是一个高产的月份。
