All three of the most widely used cryptographic schemes can be broken by algorithms designed to run on future quantum computers (left column). Cryptographers have devised a variety of schemes, three of which appear on the right, that are thought to be quantum-secure.

The idea that plants make use of quantum physics to harvest light more efficiently has received a boost. Plants gather packets of light called photons, shuttling them deep into their cells where their energy is converted with extraordinary efficiency.
