Quantum Physics Satellite Launched by China

This is pretty cool.  Today a Long March 2D rocket lifted the Mozi satellite into low Earth orbit from Jiuquan Space Center.  Mozi, also known as the Quantum Space Satellite or Quantum Experiments at Space Scale (QUESS), will conduct experiments into quantum entanglement.  The cool part is that these experiments will be basically quantum communications experiments, making this the first quantum communication satellite in history.
