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.

A mile underground in South Dakota, construction crews have worked diligently to carve out an extensive network of caverns and tunnels that one day will house a huge neutrino experiment. Their efforts have paid off: With almost 400,000 tons of rock extracted from the earth, the excavation has reached the halfway point.
