Long-term room-temp quantum entanglement achieved

  1. Nov 16, 2013 #1
    (No post on this, so fyi in case you missed it)

    Scientists have established a room-temperature quantum state for ~39 minutes, smashing the previous record and easily beating evolution (as far as we know)

    They managed it a bit earlier than my prediction of ~2015, so I expect faster than predicted development of small qubit quantum computing now.

    HOWEVER - I also predict that QC will not scale to more than a few hundreds of qubits - certainly not thousands - (because the superpositions are just a mathematical construct) - although large scale "messy" entanglements (which don't allow precise quantum computing algorithms to function) - can certainly persist
