Science Takes First Step Towards Teleportation

It looks like teleportation isn’t entirely outside the realm of possibility, according to a new scientific breakthrough. Scientists at Delft University have managed to teleport information encoded on sub-atomic particles to another place with 100% accuracy for the first time. According to Professor Ronald Hanson, who lead the team, we may one day be able to teleport a human as well. Hanson points out that we’re just a bunch of atoms arranged in a particular way, so if they can teleport a very small amount, there should be a way to teleport a large amount.

But for now, this discovery will be used to create a quantum internet, transporting information globally. Such a network would be basically hack-free, due to the nature of how the information is sent. That’s quite exciting as well, but I would love to say “Beam me up, Scotty” for real before the end of my life.
