It's a good day for quantum physics. Researchers from the University of Chicago's Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering have found a way to extend quantum states to make them last 10,000 longer than before. 

This is a huge leap given scientists have been working hard to try and keep these states going for longer than a few millionths of a second.

The findings were published in the journal Science on Thursday.
