Scientific advancements of today make anything from the X-Men to Hogwarts magic seem possible. We can grow organs and generate energy from passing cars. Nothing is too far-fetched, as proved recently by these scientists. Chinese researchers have finally come to grips with space teleportation, and no–it doesn’t work the way you think.
Researchers in China have found a way to transmit particles from the ground to a satellite orbiting more than 300 miles above the planet.
Quantum teleportation sends information about a quantum particle—such complete information that a new version of the particle can be created on the other end.
Simply? When two particles share a link so strong, altering one will alter the other. I suppose it’s something like twin telepathy. Scientists are experimenting using points located on Earth and in space (via satellite).
“This work establishes the first ground-to-satellite up-link for faithful and ultra-long-distance quantum teleportation, an essential step toward global-scale quantum internet,”
So we’re not exactly beating traffic by teleporting ourselves to work, but this could mean a much faster exchange of important information.
