“If somebody can build a quantum computer with all that it promises to be, prime number decryption could then occur in real time and that would mean all of the encryption that’s used by banks, governments and the military would be crackable.”

April 1, 2011 Santa Barbara, California - Until 2010, “all human-made objects have moved according to the laws of classical mechanics. Back in March 2010, however, a group of researchers designed a gadget that moves in ways that can only be described by quantum mechanics.” Thus began the American Association of the Advancement of Science announcement that its choice for Science Breakthrough of 2010 goes to the first quantum machine big enough to actually see with the human eye in the macro world. It's length is about the width of a human hair (image above).
