The U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) successfully launched Cygnus, last week. Cygnus is a payload with many scientific experiments aboard. The International Space Station captured the shuttle. Included in the payload were multiple experiments involving quantum science. Most interesting is that quantum experiments will be conducted during crew rest periods to reduce effects of decoherence. 

National Aeronautics and Space Administration involvement in quantum science progresses.
