The Full Story: Why This Microsoft-Backed Quantum Study Was Retracted

In 2018, researchers thought they had made a scientific discovery, finding evidence of the theorized Majorana particle. If true, it could be used to build a quantum computer. Microsoft sponsored the study, in the hopes that it would help accelerate the company's ambitions in the space and keep it competitive against Google and IBM, two rivals that had already developed advanced quantum technologies. Unfortunately, the breakthrough was not to be and scientists retracted their research in 2021.
