China Developing a Quantum Satellite to Provide 24 Hour Service

By IQT News posted 29 Mar 2019

(CGTN) China plans to develop a medium-high-earth-orbit quantum communication satellite able to provide services around the clock in the next few years, Pan Jianwei, member of the 13th National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), said recently.
Pan said his team is planning to design a new quantum communication satellite to supplement the Mozi satellite, which can only function at night due to interference from the sun.
The quantum satellite is designed to establish “hack-proof” communications between parties by transmitting un-crackable keys from space to ground stations.
