QSS (Quantum Science Satellite, or MOZI, Micius) is designed to prove the viability of quantum communications from space, an innovation that could lead to a worldwide network to transmit hack-proof messages among military forces, financial institutions and multinational companies. The Micius satellite will test out quantum communications over greater distances than ever tried on the ground. It will help establish an encrypted connection between ground stations in China and Austria with the help of scientists in both countries.
