China seems to be leading the way in so many technologies, we need to focus on science, divert the huge sums of money that were going to researching the global warming hoax, and direct them back to real science.

Next Step: Beam me up Scottie.


Researchers from China successfully teleported a photon from Earth to a satellite 500 km away. The work is an essential step towards establishing a global-scale quantum internet.

Can you go into a little more detail over what this means for us here on earth?

Thankers.

Well, truly, I don't understand it enough to put it into my own words, is there some physicists guys or gals or here?

They were experimenting with this technology to rekey satellites at Los Alamos back in the 80's.
Might be the most secure system available for small bandwidth key transfers.

It's simply Quantum entanglement of photons. They entangled two photons down on Earth, then reflect one up into space towards the satellite. The sensors on the satellite can detect the quantum state of that photon. The sensors on the ground measure the quantum state of the Earth-bound photon. The researchers can compare the results from the two sensors and tell if any have been intercepted in a satellite-in-the-middle attack.

I got a photon up my nostril.
Making me sneeze.

It is a small step towards bi location or in other words to be in 2 places at once...
Should mankind ever see this progress far enough to control the already known abilities of said particles truly fantastic abilities would be available to be harnessed...
For example remote viewing of planets so distant that the measurement which exceeds even our imagination would be possible at thought speed and return imaging in real time even...
If that is not enough for you to think upon...
To those of other worlds whom we may one day view in this way may be left in awe by the strange light array which seemingly blinked into existence from out of nowhere dazzling any observer then leaving them dumbfounded as it winked out and vanished...
Sounds kind of familiar huh?

This doesn't mean faster than light communication does it?

It most certainly does atleast at the extremes of its potentialities...

Cool, Einstein finally proven wrong with his nonsense about nothing faster than light.

Riddle me that? It's using photons as the transport, that's not faster than light...

The same particle existing in two seperate locations at the same time is reality... This is just a step in the right direction towards understanding that...

Welcome OP. Did you arrive on a photon? You're quick to post topical threads, I'm sure the quantum entanglement has somewhere a "Hi!" thread


May the photon be with you. and you. at great distance.

Well you certainly kicked down the door and came in with a bang.
This could lead to some real mind bending technology and capabilities. Some we may have already witnessed 2nd hand. Fookin cool stuff.

Wrong entangled photons don't move any faster.

Quantum entanglement of photons is one thing. Being able to recreate an object from information is another

Unfortunately, quantum teleportation (which one should note is not teleportation of a subatomic particle but rather the instant transfer of state from one particle to another) is not thought at present to be capable of allowing for the faster than light transfer of classical information.

Unfortunately, spooky action at a distance does not appear to enable spooky communication at a distance: en.wikipedia.org...

Geeez, why won't these people overdose on drugs, have an outer body experience and learn how to sway the average durable headed dupable nimrod. Well that's because they would rather pander to children that believe 3d printing over the Internet is teleportation.

No teleportation in quantum entanglement. Just recreating the wave detection property of one photon in another, different photon far away.

I remember reading somewhere that if you encoded a human into information suitable for "beaming" or "transporting" a la Star trek, and you put that info onto 2.5 in floppy disks, the resulting stack would make it all the way to alpha centauri.
