Eagle-1 will be Europe's first space-based quantum key distribution system.
Soon Europe plans to distribute quantum encrypted keys via satellite for secure communications. I'd heard talk of it before, but didn't know they planned to do it so soon. Also didn't know China already sent one up 6 years ago.
Now I've joked about cables that use quantum entanglement to guarantee the exact signal from original recordings makes it to your speakers. This puts it one step closer to becoming a reality. I just don't know exactly how many thousands of dollars or euros per meter I should charge for them.
