From National Geographic (Poland), Feb. 2, 2023: A group of 150 scientists, including researchers from Fermilab and the University of Chicago, has published one of the most precise measurements of the distribution of matter in the Universe. The analysis is groundbreaking because it used data from two very different telescope surveys and it indicated that something is missing in the current standard model of the universe.

Anton Zeilinger, who received the 2022 Nobel Prize in Physics, pioneered research on quantum teleportation and entanglement swapping. These technologies are instrumental in the success of the Illinois-Express Quantum Network, which recently published a paper outlining its design concepts and implementation. The technologies are also the basis for the quantum devices that generate the network.
