I was wondering however, if he's really the first person to re-create this particle and some secret government agency hasn't already (I wonder if they spied on this scientist seeing how important this will be) what the implications will be for the world. I imagine super-powers will start working on quantum computers asap, no doubt fighting the race against cooperate investors.
With the computing power this will unlock contemporary codes will be laughable easy to break, will the banking industry be under attack? Also, data-mining will become even cheaper and more all-encompassing.
Also interesting to note, this might shift the whole way of doing research, I believe there is an up-and-coming field of research that tries to find discoveries by building simulation-models and running many different variables until something turns out close to what is observed in real life, essentially trial and error, with more computing power this way of research will gain an enormous boost.
So yea, what do you think about?!
