Quantum communication via low-orbit satellites offers up a paradigm shift in telecommunications. Providing for unparalleled communication security, this emerging technology will also lead us into the development of the global quantum internet. This research area was given an enormous boost with the recent launch of the world's first quantum satellite. This new satellite will create entangled photon pairs, beaming them down to earth for subsequent processing and use in a range of communication scenarios.
