(OPEN):
THE "U-S DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY" HAS JUST UNVEILED ITS BLUEPRINT FOR BUILDING THE "QUANTUM INTERNET"SECRETARY OF ENERGY, DAN BROUILLETTE ["BREW-YET"], SAYS THAT IT WILL BRING THE U-S TO THE FOREFRONT OF THE GLOBAL "QUANTUM RACE"...

(BROUILLETTE):
"
THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE NATION'S FIRST 'QUANTUM INTERNET' WILL OPEN NEW POSSIBILITIES OF SCIENCE; STRENGTHEN OUR NATIONAL SECURITY; AND OPEN A WORLD OF OPPORTUNITIES, IN COMMUNICATIONS, INNOVATION, AND TECHNOLOGIES.  IT'S ONE OF THE MOST-IMPORTANT FRONTIERS OF THE 21ST-CENTURY.  AND, THE 'U-S DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY' WILL LEAD THE WAY."

(BRIDGE):
THE "QUANTUM INTERNET" WILL USE THE "SPOOKY" PROPERTIES OF QUANTUM MECHANICS--TO CREATE, TRANSMIT, AND STORE INFORMATION FASTER, AND MORE SECURELY, THAN EVER.  AND, THE "DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY'S" NATIONAL-LABORATORY SYSTEM WILL SERVE AS ITS BACKBONE.  UNDER-SECRETARY FOR SCIENCE, PAUL DABBAR ["DAH-BAR"], SAYS THAT IT'S AN AMBITIOUS COLLABORATION...

(DABBAR):
"
OUR GOAL FOR THE 'QUANTUM INTERNET' IS TO BRING TOGETHER A BROAD AND DIVERSE COMMUNITY, OF OUR LABS, THE PRIVATE SECTOR, AND UNIVERSITIES--A COMMUNITY THAT WILL COMBINE TRADITIONAL NETWORKING-CAPABILITIES AND -INFRASTRUCTURE WITH NEW HARDWARE, NEW MATERIALS, AND NEW METHODS, [IN ORDER] TO CREATE SOMETHING [THAT'S] TRULY GROUNDBREAKING."

(BRIDGE):
QUANTUM TRANSMISSIONS MAKE IT EXCEEDINGLY DIFFICULT TO EAVESDROP ON INFORMATION.  AND, SCIENTISTS AIM TO USE THAT TRAIT--TO MAKE INCREDIBLY FAST AND VIRTUALLY "UN-HACKABLE" NETWORKS.  ONE OF THE PLAN'S PRIMARY ARCHITECTS IS DOCTOR DAVID AWSCHALOM ["AW-SHAW-LOM"]--A PROFESSOR AT THE "UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO", AND THE SENIOR SCIENTIST AT "ARGONNE NATIONAL LABORATORY"...

(AWSCHALOM):
"
THE QUANTUM-COMMUNICATIONS NETWORK HARNESSES THE STRANGE RULES OF QUANTUM MECHANICS--WHICH ENABLE PARTICLES TO EXIST IN MULTIPLE STATES AT ONCE, AND [TO] BE 'ENTANGLED' WITH ONE ANOTHER OVER VERY LONG DISTANCES--EVEN WITHOUT A PHYSICAL CONNECTION.  THIS ALLOWS SCIENTISTS TO CREATE FUNDAMENTALLY NEW TYPES OF TECHNOLOGIES AND APPLICATIONS."

(CLOSE):
CRUCIAL STEPS TOWARD BUILDING THE "QUANTUM INTERNET" ARE UNDERWAY IN THE CHICAGO-AREA:  SCIENTISTS HAVE "ENTANGLED" PHOTONS ACROSS A 52-MILE "QUANTUM LOOP" IN THE SUBURBS.  AND, THAT NETWORK WILL SOON BE CONNECTED FROM BOTH "ARGONNE" AND THE "UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO" TO NEARBY "FERMILAB".  TO LEARN MORE, VISIT "D-O-E"-DOT-GOV.
