We have lived with the theory of quantum mechanics for 100 years, and since that time this remarkable and challenging theory has shown itself to be shockingly accurate, and had lead to our understanding and ability to control our world. Some say the theory is complete. Other point at much left unexplained.
Now, quantum mechanics faces a new test in the modern era. If quantum theory is right, we should be able to make a new kind of computer - a quantum computer - that is immensely more powerful than anything we have today. Will quantum pass this test?
