If you have been wondering just what is this entanglement thing? What is a qubit? How do we manipulate matter — for example, how do we change magnetic material to non-magnetic material? Superconductors at room temperature? What does this all mean. It may be ‘weird’ and sound difficult to understand. Don’t be afraid. This piece is a well-done, layperson’s read, on the subject of manipulating nature — it’s all about quantum…because quantum is coming.
