Space is critical to the development and deployment of new quantum technologies. Quantum sensors reach peak performance away from gravity's influence. On Earth, fibre optic losses limit secure quantum communication. Satellites can bridge this gap, enabling secure quantum links worldwide. This progress sets the stage for a Global Quantum Network, including quantum computers and Quantum Internet. Satellites are thus positioned as key nodes in our future Quantum-Connected planet. So, what tools might we be lacking to fully realize this extraordinary advancement?
