Optical interferometers would rely on advances being made in quantum communications. This technique is reminiscent of the iconic double-slit experiment, performed by Thomas Young in 1801. Such instruments could one day help astronomers measure the sizes and motions of stars and galaxies with greater precision. It is crucial in our understanding of the evolution of the cosmos. https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/quantum-astronomy-could-create-telescopes-hundreds-of-kilometers-wide/
