Quantum Leap in Computer Simulation

QC finding prime factors of a number using Shor's Algorithm

Physicists have successfully run the largest quantum computing simulation to date, a key step in becoming quantum-ready

If a quantum computer were a racing car it wouldn’t so much speed past a Formula One, it would simply take a private shortcut to appear at the finishing line just after the starting gun fires. And if you walked over to look under the hood to see how it worked, the engine would promptly collapse to just one random component, like a sparkplug.
